Popular Book!!

I loved the area on camping, and I've thought about making some of the ideas here at home!


Great informative articles, but I had hoped for a few more how-to's to actually do! As fantastic as it is to know how to hang a garden gate, I can't do this without the need. I suppose I had hoped for a few more "frivolous" activities to spend an afternoon on.
