Back in the 90s I worked in eastern Washington State. The area I really enjoyed camping was in Idaho near Princeton and Harvard. On a Friday mid-afternoon I would take off work early and drive to a boondocking campsite I had found in the Saint Joe National Forest.
On Saturday and Sunday morning I would wake to the sound of smells of the forest. Making a strong cup of camping coffee on the Coleman white gas stove I would listen to National Public Radio Weekend Edition.
This morning as I get settled into a Saturday of housework, after a busy workweek, I am listening to NPR and I flash back on the smell of a campfire & woods, the feel of sun warming my skin sun through the trees and the taste of the coffee remain special to this day.
