Since reading Wild at Heart by John Eldredge, I've been thinking about a serious backwoods trip. I'm no camper. I've slept in a tent less than five times. I haven't fished since I was 8. I've never cleaned a fish, though I have baited a hook. I want to go.
Bruce Pettigrew, who directs our church camp, just told me he is taking his oldest son, who just graduated from high school up to the Boundary Waters in Minnisota for 5 days of canoeing and hiking. I want to go.
