To celebrate @mypictograph having his momentous 18th birthday, we decided to take a couple car loads of teenagers to Refuge Swaggin, a backcountry cabin on the Sentier National in the Quebec woods. This journal is our shared experience of that trip.
(The photo here was @mypictograph on his first ever winter camping trip to a backcountry cabin in Camden, Maine 10 years ago.)

Evening amusements in the dark, playing with the lone beeswax candle, reading, hanging out together.
While the guys and @brienne we’re hanging out and singing at the fire the older girls were inside reading together, playing a crazy, and at time hilarious, reading game. They would each read one sentence out-loud, in turns, from their respective individual books. Books of different genres, writing styles and subject matter (though all novels), creating a new story as they went.
The fun you have with no electricity or cell service.
