Wilderness Pleasures: A Practical Guide to Camping BlissI'm very excited as I just discovered that author, Kevin Callan has finished up another great book to be released this Fall.

Wilderness Pleasures: A Practical Guide to Camping Bliss looks why we love the wilderness and how everyone from rigged canoetrippers to family car-campers can get more enjoyment from their time outdoors.

Topics include choosing the right trip, camping companion harmony, best camping gadgets and clothing, sleeping softly on hard ground, traveling light but eating well, bush martinis, close encounters of the wildlife kind, skinny-dipping, and how to make love in a canoe.

For those not in the know, Kevin is a will known author in my neck of the woods. For many years he has been writing fantastic guide books, how-to manuals as well as giving hilarious slide shows at symposiums and outdoor adventures shows all over the place.  

To help promote the book, he made a quick video that is up on the old YouTube. Watching it brings a great smile to my face as it sums up all the great things about camping (at least to me). Gladly (or mabe sadly for some) there is no video information on how to make love in a canoe you would be suprised what a quick search on the Google can do for your education!
