Survival Camp - for Real

Sleeping on rocks, starving for days, hiking miles and miles up 2000 feet of mountain? My brother in law, Nikhil recently completed Survival Camp. After reading about it in his blog, Some Thoughts and Photos, I could not believe he made it! It sounds like the most grueling, trying experience one could pay for. As I read his account and looked at the pictures, I felt at once an urge to try it for myself and a comfortable satisfaction with a vicarious experience through someone who had actually done it. Either way, it made me appreciate my bed and my toilet paper like never before. The interpersonal stuff is fascinating and the loneliness, profound. Be sure to check out this blog and be sure to scroll down and start at day one. What a journey!
