Growing up in Detroit, the outdoors was the city block where you jumped rope and rode bikes, says Maxine Hall. Maxine moved to Minnesota 13 years ago, not for its abundant nature, but for a job.
Still, when her son, Langston, hit the ripe age of five, he started making noises about camping.
Camping? Like with tents and bug spray and water from an outdoor spigot, or worse yet, filtered from a lake? Maxine would have to mull that over, and hopefully by the time she finished mulling, Langston would forget the notion. He didn't.Location
