Hailey's Novel Diary – 6/11/17

During a camping trip, one of the characters is the stranger in a strange land. She's a city girl with no experience in camping or spending much time in the great outdoors.

Fortunately for me, I have some experience with camping. I've never gone camping in the Santa Susana Mountains, and would never in a million years have the adventure they're having in the hills, but I know how to pitch a tent and start a fire. I'm never going to go on one of those reality TV survival shows where they're naked in the wilderness, but I can safely spend the night outdoors without freezing or getting eaten by bears.

This camping trip is very different from anything we used to do when we went up to Land O'Lakes or St. Croix.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
