    Would you rather teach your kids about how to order a Starbucks, or how to make peach cobbler in the Dutch?
    Would you rather teach your kid how to sit around a Starbucks and pontificate about Jersey shore, or sit around a camp fire, and wittle on a stick?

    Cause the growth of Starbucks, is much greater than the sales of camping equipment, and Dutch ovens.

    This is just a thought, and probably not a great comparison. But, you get my drift. Let's put our Time, where our mouth is....

    Your kids probably already know how to order a quad shot venti latte.

    Not sure what that is.
    I've heard of latte though.
    We don't drink coffee.
    My kids are 8 and younger.
    They do know how to double arm bar your Sally boys though.
    ;)

    My son just started wrestling at the high school. His instinct is to always got for the choke, and his coaches have to remind him not to during the matches (lots of MMA classes).

    PEACH COBBLER! PEACH COBBLER!
    Oh damn, now i really want some peach cobbler.

    my kids grow up around us making food. in the kitchen. from scratch. we can, preserve, bake, grill, butcher, grow, etc. it's fun. the kids love it.
    my kids grow up around the garage, too. we work on motorcycles, cars, construction on the house, etc. they trail along with everything i do. the kids love it and i love it.
    i started teaching my daughter how to weld @ 6 years old. oxy/ace, tig and mig.

    and now? now i'm going to go find some damned peaches and make some peach cobbler. and my kids are going to help.

    I like to fight, shoot, camp, back pack and all while drinking Starbucks coffee.
    All 3 of my kids do the same.
    What does that make us in your opinion?

    Agree but hard to catch trout in town and I can't tell you the trouble I have gotten in having a camp fire out on the side walk...

    Seriously, after a few days in the woods I usually end the trip at my local SB before going home. I guess I walk both sides of that fence.

    Starbucks has its place. I'm hardly going to build a fire and make a peach cobbler during my 15 minute morning break at work.

    If the sale of camping gear is down then how come every camping site in the state is booked well in advance of every holiday theres not snow on the ground?

    Both our grand daughters can already make cookies and cup cakes and pancakes and both know how to gut a fish and bait a hook. They turn 5 and 6 in late Feb.

    As to my kids Hmmm. My daughter has a hard time making boiling water but she could remove you appendics in an emergancy and Ihave seen her stictch up a cut as well as any surgen (shes an ex Navy corspman) My son cooks for his unit on San Clemete Island Where they maintain the Avaition Navigation Beacons and their duty station/Shop is to far to get back and forth to the base chow hall within the time allowed and still maintain the number of guys they need to be ready for a break down. He was shooting and camping as an infant. Pretty sure he can handle his own camp fire. You should try his scratch made Jalipanio Poppers made with ground sausage Bacon and Cream cheeze.

    We'll leave the girly coffee to the city slickers, never been in a Starbucks or any other such place. Not sure about the peaches either as we dont take fruit camping thats what blackberry briers, apple trees and whatever else is ripe is for.

    on the plus side: Starbucks is pro-2A.
    too bad their coffee is terrible.
    Stumptown, Cellar Door, Oblique, Heart, so many awesome local roasters...
