    I have some time to burn today, so I'll send along a quick story.

    For my girlfriend's birthday in late September - after hearing her talk about the idea of camping -I decided to buy her a nice two persontent with the intent on using quite often. However, with Chicago's winter just around the corner, we decided that we better get up there at least once before the snow started falling.

    With a combination of interstate, tollways, Wisconsin country roads, dirt paths and more, we arrived at our campsite with way too much gear in-tow. The thing about the XC (or any Volvo wagon) is that it just begs us to fill it full of cold ones, food and random camping supplies. And I'm fine with that.

    After a couple of days of exploring, both inside the car and by foot, the very best of Wisconsin's forests, we headed back to the City and the real world.
    There's nothing quite like getting in your car on Monday morning and still smelling the campfire. It makes me wish I'd taken up this hobby sooner.

    But, as long as my XC keeps running smooth, I'll be heading up next spring, summer and fall for more fun. Below are some pics from the trip.
