July 11, 2021

Well, let’s just go ahead and state the obvious right off the top: I’m the last person who should be doling out advice on camping, you know it, I know it, the spider I just saw in my basement knows it. But read that title again because there’s an important distinction you may have missed. Yes, there’s a “gl” where the “c” should be and that, my friends, means it’s my time to shine.
