We went primitive camping last week for two nights at Mammoth National Park and had a blast! Matt, Wyatt, and I went camping with friends seven years ago so it is safe to say that it has been awhile. My friend Mary loaned us some gear and helped me get organized. Mary and her crew are master campers. Her best piece of advice? Don't forget the scooters!
|Deer visited our site several times and were not afraid of my loud and rambunctious kids. Amazing!|

So will we primitive camp again? Yes! Matt and I made a list of things that worked, those that did not and gear that we would like for the next time. There is nothing like falling asleep to the sounds of nature and waking up to a crisp fall morning with hot chocolate and pancakes over an open fire. After the initial set up there was a lot of time to relax and just enjoy each other.
