Camping: “When two or more people bonded by friendship, blood, or law intentionally pack themselves into an oversized ziplock baggie (tent), which they have laboriously hauled into the rugged outdoors in an attempt to have fun and create better relationships and closer family bonds.”
That’s one amusing way to look at camping trips, since all vereran campers know there’s no such thing as a camping trip without challenges. But enjoying the bounties of nature with those we love is simply a wonderful experience, challenges, pleasures and all. Check out some of the campgrounds on or near Smith Mountain Lake and make another lasting and treasured memory for your family and friends.
