My friends and I are the type of people that love being outside. We go hiking, fishing, and kayaking when we have time off and away from work. I grew up enjoying camping and being outside. My brothers and I were constantly outside doing something that would be fun and our parents never made us come indoors unless it was late in the evening when we had to come home for good. They were happy to let us roam around outside. They let us explore so we could learn about nature on our own. I think that is one of the reasons why I have so much love for being outdoors and doing outdoor things. Even as an adult, I still enjoy going to the lake or the river. If I don’t have to work at all, you can find me at the lake or the river. My friends and I made a plan to go to the river last weekend. Temperatures outside were supposed to be cold, but we had a tent and we were staying in a site that had electricity. At night we plugged a heater into the electricity. The heater helped get rid of the cold chill. It didn’t heat the tent entirely, because there were a lot of places for warm air to escape. It did help us sleep more comfortably and I woke up in the morning not feeling stiff like I do when I have to sleep in the cold. We enjoyed our time out on the river. We kayaked most of the day on Saturday and took home a couple of pretty nice fish that we put on the fire and ate for dinner.
