But likewise, it’s fairly irritating if you’re entirely covered with sweat and fighting off mosquitoes and horse flies the entire time.
Many of my favorite hobbies and activities are outdoors. My parents took my siblings and I on short hiking trips every single weekend at a nature preserve that is about a mile from our residence. Every one of us used to pick wild flowers for our mom, while our dad would help us identify creature footprints on the ground. By the time I was a teenager, the bunch of us started going on family kayaking trips. Regardless of some of my siblings leaving for college, the bunch of us still would regularly go outdoors as a family whenever they would be home visiting. Because of our parents, I absolutely am fond of outdoor activities. I seriously enjoy rollerblading in the parks near our residence that have paved trails for bikers and skaters. One of my other favorite pastimes just so happens to be camping. When I left for college, I made the choice to move to a state further north that has a ton of dense state forests. I purchased a camping backpack, a tent, a cold weather sleeping bag, and a huge amount of camping supplies and equipment. Often, I would do more of my camping in the warm season while there wasn’t snow and ice on the ground. But likewise, it’s fairly irritating if you’re entirely covered with sweat and fighting off mosquitoes and horse flies the entire time. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always enjoy camping, however it surely makes me realize how much I take indoor a/c for granted. It’s pretty easy to get used to having total control over your indoor climate just from using a thermostat. When you’re enjoying the woods, you’re stuck with whatever weather nature throws at you. As long as it makes myself and others more appreciative of having excellent comforts such as indoor AC, it’s a marvelous experience to have.
