Camping is part of my happiness.
To keep myself grounded I feel the need to go outside, away from my home, sleep on the ground.
A very light shelter to keep me dry and a warm sleeping bag are essentials; I try to keep the rest to a minimum to fit inside a small backpack.

Away from the city and its distractions time slows down and my eyes open to take-in what the natural surroundings offer me instead. The little things that I can not notice while preoccupied with my mundane urban life suddenly come into view when in the bush.
And the friends I choose to share my outings with can receive my attention, I have time to listen to them.

My shelter is simple: a thin modern tepee that lets the ground be felt.
A bit of grass, leaves and bark, a small rock in the corner, are all part of my new home.
