Camping for Girls: Peeing Outside

You’re on a camping trip. The sunset was stunning and for the first time in months you were able to watch it. Out here in the woods, the peaceful evening settles over you as you and your friends sit around a camp fire exchanging childhood memories, silly ghost stories and a few cold beers from the cooler someone was smart enough to remember.

Camping at Powell River, British Columbia

“Camping!” I exclaimed incredulously. Just the mere thought of spending the night outdoors terrified and disgusted me.

A Dip into Camping

There is a place in the Swiss Alps at 1400 meters of altitude with a lake surrounded by foresty hills and cliffs, Lac Taney.
