    Winter Camping

    All you need is wieners, marshmellows and gas.

    Ever since heading to the hills with my best friends to escape Y2K, camping has been my favorite New Year's Eve party. Unfortunately, I'm married now and the kids have to be in bed by 9:00 at the latest. If you drink, there's no one to tell you you're past your limit. If you don't, there's no live music that is as sweet as a crackling fire.
