I was brought up camping and water-skiing. Every summer was spent camping on the edge of a lake where the day started off with an early morning ski, when the water was like glass. It was always followed by eggs and bacon cooked up by dad on a wood fired barbeque. I have very fond memories of this easy going childhood and the carefree way of life. It has taught me to respect and love the great outdoors and has given me a sense of adventure. There's nothing like sleeping under the stars, cooking sausages on the barbie and toasting marshmallows on an open fire. To this day, I still love to go camping once a year just to put me back in touch with nature.
