Letter From The Editor
There are few things that sound less appealing to me than camping. I've never done it and I probably never will. I prefer the great outdoors as seen from my screened-in porch whilst sipping iced tea. Apparently though, there are people out there (I call them maniacs) who like sleeping amongst the elements, getting bit by insects and eliminating in the deep woods.
For those folks, this issue of Moomah the Magazine will have everything you need to get you ready for your first camping trip of the season. For the other, more reticent people like myself, there is no reason why you can't enjoy everything this issue has to offer in the comfort and safety of your own backyard or apartment; spooky tales told around the campfire (or nightlight); the perfect gluten-free 'smores; and we'll show you how to make your very own tee-pee with a mini-campfire.
If your child is off to summer camp for the first time, let our experts give you some advice on sending off a happy camper. And in the meantime, take a minute to check out the perfect camping trips you will want to take, that embrace the camping spirit, whilst avoiding the bugs, outdoor showers and sleeping bags.
I really am excited about these stories. So much so, that I wanted to share them with all my camping-enthusiast friends... except I've made sure not to have any. I will admit, however, that during the making of this issue I was continually tempted to give camping a chance, but the vision of becoming bear food couldn't be shaken. Perhaps it's time for a chat with Dr. Anne Marie Albano?
HAVE FUN YOU MANIACS!
