It was the beginning of fall. The leaves were just beginning to change colors and fall off of the trees. I told my buddies that I wanted to plan a camping trip before the fall term of college began. I was going to be a senior this fall and wanted to enjoy every minute that I could before graduation and entering into the real world. I wanted to enjoy being immature and carefree even if it was only for the next year. My buddies agreed to the camping trip. We loaded up my pick up and headed toward the lake. There was a shady spot there where we could pitch a couple of tents.
