Backyard Camping

Ok I admit that in the last post I stretched the truth a little. First, I only played 7 hours or Red Dead Redemption, not 9 -- I'm not that much an addict. Also, I didn't just drop Hannah off in the woods out of the blue. We sort of prepared her for it by doing some outdoorsy type stuff beforehand. Here we are camping in our backyard:

Hope this puts things in perspective!

Toddler Vs. Wild

I was watching repeats of Mad Men on cable one night when I thought to myself: "Man, I
am sure being soft on my daughter..." So in order to toughen up Hannah I drove her 20 miles into the San Gabriel Mountains the following morning and dropped her off somewhere in the woods, giving her the privilege of finding herself home with nothing but her own two feet. However, after returning home and roughly playing 9 hours of Red Dead Redemption, I slowly began to question my decision. So I made the journey back into the woods to check up and Hannah, and lo and behold, she's completely fine!

And I'm not the only one that did it either!

Next time I'll try 40 miles in the San Bernadino Mountains. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger , right?
