As an avid lifelong tent camper, I started tent camping when I was 8 years old, on week-long bear hunting camping trips with my grandfather in the mountains of West Virginia.

My later camping experiences also included 8 years as an adult Boy Scout leader in a troop that was very active - camping out at least one, (sometimes two), weekends each month. That's where I learned that camping with kids was one of the best and most fulfilling camping trips to go on. It was also where I discovered that I was a pretty fair campfire story teller, and learned many of the camping tips I write about. I enjoy sharing my camping tips and experiences at:

CampingwithGus.com - on camping tips, free camping guides, resources, and printable camping checklists. Plus of course a jam-packed section dedicated to camping with kids ideas and information.

One of my favorite reasons for camping is the campfire. From campfire cooking, to after-dark story-telling, it's just not a "real" campout without a campfire.

ps. If you frequently go camping with kids, you might find these Camping with Kids Resources helpful.

I do have a few other irons in the fire other than camping. The "little devil" in me enjoys the lively debates and exchanges generated by my political and social issues articles written as:

Personal Information:

Greetings from Maryland's Eastern Shore, U.S.A. I am technically old as dirt, but feel just short of middle-age. I am so handsome that women stare at me in public places, but also humble enough to smile and nod thank you, I have a wonderful wife and family, and my kid's are doing great. They have to, I made them sign contracts when they were six, promising to support my wife and I. The details of said support requiring no less than eleven single-spaced pages.

I think Hubpages is a great writing platform that allows me to write articles that make $1000's of dollars per day, or ones that tell all the knuckleheads in the world where to go, and how to get there. These are just as enjoyable as the money makers - because there are a lot of knuckleheads that need my attention.
