lol. they are nice for 'round the campfire at night, though.

i always pack a pair of extremely lightweight "water shoes"or sandals for wearing once camp is made.
I do too--it makes walking from my room to the pool and back again a lot more comfortable.

Good advice unless there's a strong wind blowing uphill.

Chief's Tip of the Day: Children are like cattle. They have an instinctual need to try new things, and expand their boundaries. But they have too little experience to always make safe, or wise choices. It is our job as adults to encourage them to learn new things, but with boundaries to keep them safe, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. When we set up those boundaries, even though they may fight against them, it let's them know that we love them, and are looking out for them. It helps them feel secure, and safe. The trick is to expand those boundaries quickly enough to allow the child to grow to his or her full potential, while keeping them safe. That's a parent's job. One more thing; though they are like cattle, you can't milk you kids.

When you are feeling especially mischievous, or need to use up over-abundant energy, sneak into the bathroom, when your child, or spouse is taking a hot shower. Then, dump a pitcher full of ice water over the shower curtain and run. Suppress laughter to the best of your ability so as to remain anonymous, if possible. Oh, and expect pay-backs.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind fo the North

If the child is exceptionally curious, hide all fire making materials, including the toaster.

Also, all children are pyromaniacs...they do not grow out of it, they just learn to play with fire safely.
