The Outdoors Is County Attraction (by Bill Graves). -
Of the entire warm weather season of outdoor activities, camping during the fall can be the most enjoyable event for individuals and families. In the era of luxury camps on wheels of every shape and size, it's nice to be a true sportsman and to enjoy a weekend of traditional camping where a few outdoor skills are utilized. There's still a good deal of self satisfaction in selecting a proper campsite, erecting a tent, building a safe, effective cooking fire and putting on a first class campfire meal.
