Just got back from our traditional October camping trip. Took the wife and kids to FDR state park, just a 40 min drive from the house. It was like pulling teeth to get things ready, car repairs, camper repairs, etc etc-----------but it was sooooooo worth it! 5 days 4 nights of no TV, no cell phones, no work etc.---------lots of great food (Im getting better and better with the dutch oven every trip---excellent food, no one loses weight on my trips!) We spent alot of great time together as a family, hiking, sitting around the campfire, eating, etc etc. Its not easy to put these trips together, but the time spent is priceless! I brought my banjo and had several very neat moments sitting by my self, playing banjo, taking in the beauty of the woods. all in all, it was an excellent trip, and I feel like a new man! (until I have to go to work tomorrow!)

I went to the woods to live deliberately......

Boy, I know that feeling of being in the woods with a banjo and as far away from cell phone reception as you can get. Sounds like you have to wrangle cats to make it happen, but that has to make the "fire time" all the better.
Thanks for the info about the goodtime earlier -- I needed that!

I love my goodtime banjo----------I did a ton of research before buying it, my wife was about ready to kill me, she was so tired of hearing about banjos! Its the perfect fit for me, and it was great to be able to take it camping. The company I bought it from said it also makes a great weopon, or canoe paddle! Billy, do people in India go camping, or is it just an american thing?
