    I like to go camping with my friends in the woods. It is very interesting and unites us. It's really cool to be alone with nature.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I did that a lot when I was in high school. It was a lot of fun.

    Camping is fun as long as your friends aren't the modern demonically possessed weirdos luring each other to the woods to butcher one another.

    I have fantastic memories of back woods camping in my mid twenties with a couple of friends. It really helps get one's head in a good place and free of distractions.

    I love it. I loved it in the army, and loved it even when I used to hike alone a lot. better with friends though. You can't beat a night under the stars.

    I heard about some nut who killed someone on the apalachian trail. It's not a common occurence though, more people die taking a bath or driving to the shops.

    I don't know, but it's something that's been on my mind for years, something I wanted to do for a long time.. I say go for it, it seems really fun and freeing..

    I know, right? Nothing like being in the woods surrounded by a bonfire , cooking smores and weiners and laying with a blanket under a dark sky full of bright stars...

    I used to love hiking alone but it depends where you go I think. I prefer company these days.

    This is not at all what we are talking about. Nutcases (young or old) luring young children into the woods is not the same thing as adults, or near adults (this forum is 16+) going camping with their friends.

    While there are weirdos and nutcases, being with close friends is a enriching and safe thing to do, and even better if they are Godly people. One must always be vigilant - there are random stabbings, rapes and shootings in urban and suburban environments too - in fact far more than in the woods.

    Exactly why I hesitated for years into going...that kinda stuff always crossed my mind..the woods are a nice place to have a peace of mind but I know the dangers of it too..and one would have to be skillful and wise being out there...I think I'm more afraid of the animals then people out there though lol imagine meeting a big black bear

    Good point, I suppose once one is more comfortable one is more at ease. Sometimes just starting is the best way to get used to it. I am comfortable being in the presence (or possible presence) or animals, but I also know the signs to watch out for and when in bear country carry bear spray. :)
