On the trip up from South Carolina, Jake kept going on about how great his new camping equipment was. He had invested over $800 in a new sleeping bag and tent.

About 10 years ago me and four of my friends went camping near Brevard , North Carolina . We were at a great little campground called North Mills River.

4/7/07- Saturday at a upscale campground in Kissimmee, Florida eight teenagers were arrested for disturbing the peace,underage drinking and one of them also for pushing one of the arresting officers.
The eight teens were having a video game tournament called a LAN party. They were playing a popular game by Microsoft called Gears of War. It involves people acting as soldiers on a fictional planet. While gaming, the group were quite loud and neighboring campers complained.
The campground supervisor arrived shortly after the complaints to find most of the underage players to be heavily intoxicated. There were no adults present and beer cans were scattered around the RV said the supervisor.
