Girl scouts? Do you remember "make new friends, but keep the old?"

One is silver, and the others gold...

We sang it by the campfire, as kids, and it's just as true today.

I spoke today with a camping friend that I  taught with many, many years ago. (Not telling.,)

She's at a rally that she's been attending for probably a decade. Fun with old friends and new.

Past summer, she created an informal "camping experience " with her senior band friends. 

We've made cherished friends within the Ollie circle, and other friends around the world, camping, in our Ollie, and rentals/ deliveries.

Tonight, in my conversation with my friend,  I  was struck by how much our life has been enriched by our camping  (and sailing/cruising) experiences.  

That song I learned in Brownie camp is just so true. Some people I cherish today, though I've never met them in person.  Others, that I've camped with are cherished in another special way.

Life can be so good, when we get out there, and open our hearts to adventure,  and new friends. 

I do so love the woods, thevbeauty of nature,  the adventure,  and all the opportunities. 

Camping season, for us, this year, is drawing to a close. Maybe a few short trips, but other adventures await.

We’ve made some great Oliver friends over the years.  Real friends.  It’s fun to see them at various places across the country and renew connections.  

We like to camp year round.  We were in Colorado in June and July.  We’ll be out the month of October and then the month of January.  It’s a good pace, home a couple of months, out a month or two, repeat.  Mike

Yes, all those Girl Scout songs go through my head while hiking....

"I love to go a wandering along the mountain track

And as I go I love to sing, my knapsack on my back

Valderi, Valedera, Valdera Valde ha ha ha ha ha ha

Valderi, Valdera my knapsack on my back

(The Happy Wanderer by Friedn W. Moller)
