And hello to you all

Out of all of you, I'm probably the most inexperienced one here.. I'm 24, and most of my camping comes from being part of a dutch scouting group.. But as the name implies, it is in the netherlands, so the wilds... Well... They aren't very wild, a rogue cow will sometimes look at you threateningly and then secretly tuck you in at night and give you quite a scare, but that is about it.

Scouting in the Netherlands luckily does seem quite a bit different from most other countries, as we have actually learned a lot about camping in nature, finding paths, building shelters and knotting stuff together...

Apart from that though, my camping experience has been pretty lacking though I am definitely looking to expand my horizons, find some real wilds, go out survival camping, live a little so to speak.

So yes, hi.

Oh and if anyone ever has any questions, please do ask, I will answer everything!

Ps. Preemptive answer: Yes, land of weed, hookers, wind mills, cheese, tulips and wooden shoes.

Welcome to the group! ^v^

Yeah, it's getting to be that time of year to do some camping, for sure.

Ah, Scouting... I wish my parents had pushed me into that when I was a kid. I know that I wouldn't have liked it at the time, but hopefully I would have learned something useful and appreciated it later in life.

Glad to hear that in the Netherlands, they still do "real" camping in Scouts; an article that I was reading a month or so ago said that more kids are getting merit badges for community service, theater, etc. and less for outdoorsy activities in North America.

P.S. Yes, we all live in igloos here in Canada, and play hockey all year long. Aren't cultural stereotypes wonderful? :-)

Well, here we're all fat, snerky, illiterate, beer-guzzling rednecks. Oregon: the northernmost southern state. Wait - that's Washington!

Anyhoo, greetings from the land of beer, cheese, trees taller than buildings, old bridges, strip clubs and unemployed yuppies!
