Over the years, I’ve had the good fortune to do quite a bit of camping from Africa to South America. Some were memorable; others I want to forget. One of the best was on the Kanektok River in Alaska. That was a fly-fishing float trip along a river that provided some outstanding drift fishing for huge rainbow trout. Among my worst camping trips was one in Mexico along the Pacific coast. While out surfing one day, we returned to find out that somebody had stolen our camp – as in tents, chairs, stoves, lanterns and more. Talk about a surprise.
