Hiking Trip Part Three – Camp

So, I left you last time standing atop The Hill, vowing to conquer it one day with a full pack. I really mean that, too. and have taken steps to facilitate a return attack next year. But we went on to camp from there over a few more streams and finally around the bend to where the tent got pitched and the fire built. My partners, Rambo and Bucko,   wouldn’t let me do much.

So, I left you last time as we went into the woods. It was a major event in my life. My very first hiking trip, and at a middle age where most people are just getting comfy in their recliners with the remote. I decided to heck with living cozy, I want adventure.

Is your social media like family?

Is your social media like family?

What makes your life story? Is it your family? Your friends? Your career? I would be certain that it isn’t your social media, right? So, why is it that so many people are spending so much of their life posting to the Internet? What is it about social media that we cannot stay away from? Experts have an opinion. It is said that people (humans) are social creatures and some like social media to keep in touch with other humans. Some say that it is a networking thing. Professionals need it to promote their business. Either way, it’s a tool.
