    There are the elite runners who get interviewed as they cross the finish line. Their faces glistening with sweat and a medal hugging their neck. Then you have the people who dress up as a Tyrannosaurus Rex and chase people around tent city. You also have fans that come from bigger schools. Girls walk around wearing nothing more than running shorts, a sports bra, and face paint. Boys paint their whole body in their school colors. Some make masks of their runners faces to wear. A few even take old torn uniforms and make them into makeshift flags. The parents are the best though. All bundled up in school spirit. Wearing hoodies with the school 's logo printed across it. Waving signs that they had spent hours working on the night before. They don’t care if you win or lose; they only care that you made it all the way to state. My dad likes to pretend he is a coach. He always has his running watch to time me and likes to sprint across the course to make sure he can be there to…

    to hug a windmill off of camp property of even trying the food combinations that the kitchen has us try, everything is a blast. For me though, my favorite thing to do was to pull pranks on the other guys, especially when it involves the seventeenth anniversary of cicadas. It all started sitting on the floorboards of a musty scented green canvas tent in staff city, the staff’s own campsite. I was leaning with my back on a support pole as a large gust of wind blew through the city and between the…

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in the wild? Do you envision dangerous animals and food cooked over a fire you had to build? One way that you can have that experience is by camping on a nature preserve or at a large lake. I have camped many times while growing up but the two places I remember the most would be Wichita Mountains or Lake DeGrey. Both of the places are places that people can go camping at if they are looking to get out of the city. Wichita Mountains is a better…

    It was March of 2015 that Dan and I decided to make our first camping trip of the year. This particular road trip was not like the many others we have pursued. When we arrived, we were led by the event staff of Hoopla in the Hills to an open field. We pitched our tent and canopy in the breezy ice cold morning. We hung beautiful tapestries on the canopy for a secluded yet magical hangout spot. We placed a table and two chairs under the center of the canopy. On the table, we had a box of tissues,…

I used to not own a weatherproofed marquee, so the water leaking from all sides worries me in every trip. Thus, even now that I have one, I prefer not to leave behind the…
