Preparing for a camping trip : Practical info (and some philosophical musings) about “things”: technical details – equipment, physical preparation, gadgets (from “electrical spoons” to GPS). Traveling is always very personal, but I hope other people could find useful information for their own journeys as well.
Some general thoughts about my trip, including how the mode of traveling defines the experience, Israeli vs. American campgrounds, being alone, safety, money, empowerment, politics, the social scene, temperatures, beauty, and why I wrote this journal.
The epilogue is an attempt to appreciate the physical and psychological long-term effects of my sola camping trip, especially my decision making processes. “On this trip nobody penetrated the space between me and my agency, so every mistake or misstep were clearly mine and owned, as well as every decision well taken.”
