Last weekend I went camping. Probably not such a big deal to most people, but I did it once before for Scout leader training last year and had the most miserable time. I'm quite a 'let's give it a go' person though, so even if I think I hate something, I know it might take a few goes to really form my opinion, hence trying camping again. And actually, it wasn't too terrible. I think I know myself quite well and I guessed I would have problems with the sleeping-among-noise-and-the-elements part, but the rest was pretty fun. The weather at the weekend was gorgeous, a huge factor in making the whole thing more bearable, and as you can see, the location was stunning.

Challenge 26 - Try something you think you're going to hate.
So on second attempt, I didn't hate camping. Sure there were parts of it I'd be happier not dealing with (lack of toilets wasn't even top of the list) but I'm glad to know it's something I can do now and again and feel adventurous in the process.
Has anyone else been camping? Got any tips for me?
