If you ever have the opportunity, invite all of your friends backpacking. In my experience, thirteen came. We hiked in the dark as the moonlight led. We had a place to sleep but slept somewhere else instead. We all packed food and ended up sharing it all. We had a bonfire on the top of a mountain, with the stars winking at us from above.
