Camping means something different to everyone. I share some of my story in the episode below as well as some guidance on how to start a storytelling conversation about camping. You will find a visual aide and written prompts on this page. Writing down your camping experiences is a great way to get inspired to get outside and get moving. When you are working with someone else, don't forget to share your story too!

A Note from the Legacy Lady
Camping, for me, is quite simply my happy place. Growing up, we were camping, backpacking, hiking, and spending as much time as we could outside. Lucky for us we lived in Phoenix, AZ so we could be outside most of the year.
Now as an adult in Western PA, I've had to adjust my expectations on how many days we can spend outside in a year. Camping and taking our kids outside is still a major priority and I am thankful my husband and I agree wholeheartedly on that point.
Picking a favorite camping trip is nearly impossible. I'm going the sappy route and saying the trip I met my husband on when we were teenagers. That trip was pretty memorable.
