Long ago, when I was a Boy Scout living in Georgia, our Troop made
several backpacking and canoeing trips around Georgia and to the
Okefenokee swamps (remember Walt Kelly's Pogo strip?) of Florida. Ah,
now that was an experience, not knowing whether I would become an
alligator's midnight snack! After my Dad (Air Force) was transferred
from Georgia, I lost the backpacking/camping spirit. Since then,
having two sons in Boy Scouts has renewed my love of the outdoors.
Since my oldest, a 15-year-old Star Scout, became involved in Scouting
ten years ago I have enjoyed campouts and backpacking trips, either
with the Troop or with the family, throughout Oregon, almost to the
point that it has become an obsession with me. My wife and daughter
also enjoy camping, but not to the degree that my sons and I do. We
prefer backpacking - they prefer the comforts of a State Park
campground with running water and warm showers. We live in the wine
country of the Willamette Valley of Oregon, just between the Coastal
Range and the Cascade Range. My pack is still too heavy, even after
all that I've learned from this group. But I am making progress!
