LOL.  I had one of those in Girl Scouts.  It's LONG gone, so it's doubly amazing to me that you still have yours.:)

Galen, I don't believe you ! I don't think that set is 50 years old. it looks brand new to me!

S said...

So you had this awesome camping stuff, but you never went camping with it? :P

Yes Galen, we won!

Hurray! Have a lovely day.

Awwwwww, yeah, baby....

Bonfires, roasted marshmallows, sing-a-longs, and ghost stories...

Actually, I've never been camping, so these are the made-up things in my head that I've associated with it.

Somehow, when I think of camping I think of the movie Meatballs.

Even though that's Summer Camp and not Camp-ing.

It's a really great movie though.

xo, G-eagle scout

I was in Brownies in the second grade, but I didn't really like the social aspect of it and my mom didn't like to have to talk to the other moms involved with Brownies, so it didn't last very long.

That was my only year in Brownies.

I was in a parade as a Brownie though, that was cool.

I have pictures.

As Strumpet, the little brownie.

Cool, mess kit, Galen Lee.

I need a mess kit.

I'm a messy girl.

...I bet you're good with knots.

good afternoon sir! camping would be so fun. It has been so long since I have been camping. Actually we owned a RV in a big RV park/campground but I don't consider that actual camping because it isn't roughing it.

Come January we get to see what our new President is going to do. I voted for him so I am ready to see him put his plans in motion and get this country back on track.

have a beautiful day! :)

Your turn to throw a log on the camp fire!!!!

Missy said...

Nothing about you surprises me anymore. You need to put that camping gear to use and go camping. :)

Sitting in a box does no good.

barman said...

Camping indeed. That is exactly what I was thinking when I saw that. Is there nothing you do not own? Do you have one of those collapsible shovels too?

Now how about a smore?
