Camping In 26 Degree Weather And How Awesome It Was
So.....there we are. Sitting in class at church. There were about 10 young men from the ages 12-18 staring at me as I just asked them the question of doing a campout trip in January? Mind you this was asked of them in October. This fall was a little more on the warm side, so they all wanted to go. Everyone was excited about the campout and had all these ideas and things they wanted to do. First, we decided it was going to be on the Caney Fork River. One of the best places to campout if you as
