Camping is one of the things I miss about my youth. My wife is not much for being out-doors, so we don't do it anymore.
I remember gathering firewood, starting the fire using flint (we always tried that before resorting to matches and sometimes it was successful).
I spent summers in Yosemite National Park assisting my uncle (trying to stay out of his way) who was a park ranger there. It was a lot of fun getting to know the woods and mountains near the rangers' camp.

Rest in Peace, Buck. You were truly a giant among men.
