Geez… Where to start? My name is Lindsay Karchner Michael. I’m from a very small town in the mountains of Pennsylvania. I grew up in nature. My family built a small log cabin in the woods and we lived a natural way of life. Dad hunted a great deal and sometimes we kept a garden.

We also have a camp further out into the wilderness. Everyone up there has a camp. In case you aren’t sure what in heck I’m talking about, camp is a little run-down shack of some sort that your family owns to vacation in. To relax. To hunt and fish. To do work on the camp. To make things harder on yourself in some ways. That might sound silly. When I’m at camp there are few worries, but the few that I have are big – fresh water, firewood, rattlesnakes, and bears. There is no cell phone service and the nearest hospital is 45 minutes away. Planning is a huge deal. But I’m getting off track here…

Once my family’s business grew, we moved closer to town. I went off to college and trips back home grew less frequent. I moved to North Carolina, where I live today. As time went by I started going home more. Going back to camp. Getting into healthy foods and back to a more natural way of life. I realized I just felt better in the woods.

In the last six years or so I have been striving to get back to a permanent “camp” situation. During these last years, I have wanted to put up this site and just keep not getting to it. Today’s the day.
