Lessons Learned

Well, we not only survived camping, we actually loved it. Northern Minnesota is very pretty, with lots of nothings… we did not see the bears we thought we might, or the moose, but we saw plenty of deer, mosquitos and bald eagles.

we ventured into Canada also, being only a half hour from the border. The lady at the border was extremely friendly, even if I was terrified to even cross the border and leave safe America. She not only stamped our passports on our request, she also gave us a Canada pin each. How sweet!!!!

And..they let us back into the US also..

So what lessons did we learn?

we can set up a tent without fighting, even if we did not know what the tent was supposed to look like.

we can build a fire and cook food on it… and roast marshmallows…

we can survive with a ‘vault’ toilet. If you gotta go and don’t want to walk 10 minutes, it certainly will do.

mosquitos love me more than Melody…

we saw no bears, but loved being outside and slept perfectly well…

we want to repeat the experience as often as we can

And now we are packed again…Costa Rica is the destination… not a bad location for work…
