    I was a girl scout as a kid and they use to take us camping regularly. It was such a different experience than I was use to growing up in Orlando. I remember seeing the stars and wondering why they looked so much brighter than at my house. Time felt different, the air smelled different and I wasn't sure why but I liked it.
