I'd camp next to that a whole lot faster than I would camp next to a picnic table that had a trumpet on it.

Last time I did that it cost me money. I was cleaning an old silver tuba at a picnic table and struck up numerous conversations about it. One of the people was a knife maker and I bought a couple from him as gifts. Contrary to the meme, it is a GREAT conversation starter. Now, when I started playing it they may have vacated their sites!

Camping with a tuba is definitely recommended. I took my Wessex Mighty Midget on a 14 day canoe trip through Quetico Provincial Park last summer.

For me, camping is a lot like driving a car; It's a time when I'm really not desirous of drawing attention to myself.

As much as I am very proud to have been a Scout leader for my son's troop and going with him to Scout campouts and other activities and events, now that he is an Eagle, I am equally glad those days are done and I don't have to go camping anymore.

And I'm not to enthused about hotel rooms, either, having had to stay in one for ten weeks from mid-June until Labor Day while fire damage, other repairs and cleaning were completed after a lightning strike house fire.

Pink Floyd said it best: "Home, home again. I like to be there when I can."
