But, from how you talk about fish camp....
I grew up going to Deer camp in November. 2 weeks with my grandpas and uncles in old wall tents and brush arbors to get fresh meat and hides. I remember smokey fires and helping my grandma cut meat cause i was too little too hunt with my dad. This was all over by 1965. All gone. Cherish what you have up there. Go see it again. My children just do not understand how I felt about it and how I miss it.
Yes it is hard to explain the good feeling from being with family doing traditional things. Especialy when you are so far from home or will never get to experience it again.
I'm saving to go. I want my daughter (3 year old) to know her family. All of her family. Some day soon!
