... face-to-face unless you go out and meet someone new, and even though this may be easy for some it still takes up your time.

When I created a profile on the website, similar to Facebook, people who have similar interests to you almost get to know you ahead of time so by the time you arrive it is like meeting an old friend. That is how it was with Colleen, from the time I arrived to the time I left, our conversations seemed to flow ...

We really only saw a couple of deer and some squirrels, which was disappointing. The drive to our site took about 20 mins and when we arrived it was pretty empty. We wanted to find a spot along the stream that ran through the site and found a nice level one we could easily back ...
