One with Nature

Camping: A place where an army or other group of persons or an individual is lodged in a tent or tents or other temporary means of shelter.

Camper: A person who camps out for recreation, especially in the wilderness.

The above definitions I found here but I would propose that the definition of camper should really  should have a few more things added.

This is what I came up with.

Camper: A person, who enjoys being a bitten by a variety of bugs, especially mosquitoes. A person, who loves  camping "perfume" which can include but is not limited to, soot, ash, bug spray, sun screen, dirt and pine needles. A person who has a secret observation with fire and at all times needs to have a blazing one going to fulfill their deep inner caveman. A person who when a piece of food or plate or utensil or any thing else falls on the ground does not look at it as a negative thing but as add extra protein. A person who is in awe of the wonders of nature and loves the lullabies song by the night creatures.  

We went camping with a group of friends out in Kananaskis country. I love camping in  Kananaskis, it so pretty close to home and unbelievably beautiful. I think that people who always drive out to Banff really have no idea what they are missing.
