Families that tent together stay together, or so a loose paraphrase of a famous saying goes.

Our family did a lot of backpacking and tenting as our kids grew up. We had many great experiences along with a few rough spots.

But even the rough times can contribute to pulling a family together. It’s not trouble-less times that promote family bonding. Rather, it’s experiencing and surviving difficulties as a family that can  promote familial unity.

What’s camping about anyway? Luxury and comfort? Not tent camping, anyway.
