I can camp -Sibley State Park

This is part one of a two part article on what I would want to describe as our journey from I-can-Camp! to I-did-Camp!

Camping and fishing seem to be popular outdoor activities that Minnesotans involve themselves in during the summers. You may add cycling, trekking, canoeing to that list as well; basically everything outdoorsy. I guess it has to do with the fact that for 6 months or so, people in this part of the world are pretty much holed up in their warm homes. Of course there are the brave-hearts who find fun outdoor activities like skiing and ice fishing during the winters to keep themselves busy. However for someone like me and my buddy who had never camped on our own, we were missing out on this fun activity and thanks to Minnesota DNR’s I-can-camp program we were able to do that as well this last summer.
