The Developmentally Challenged Go Camping
Ten inspiring days in the wilderness with some very special people
- #107916 in Fiction & Literature
(Based on actual events) Dave was a corporate exec on the brink of a nervous breakdown from his job. So, when his friend Rachel asked him to go with her on a camping adventure into the wilderness of the Badlands, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks, he agreed to go with her. The only catch was, she would be bringing seven developmentally challenged adults with her. She said she only needed him to back the trailer in for her at the campsites, and to help teach camping skills. But he knew deep down that there was more to this than a simple camping trip. He had little experience in dealing with those with special needs and wasn?t sure what he would do if one of them wanted to run off to pet a pretty grizzly bear. However, he knew from past hiking and camping experiences that nature could restore him back to some sort of sanity and this is what eventually convinced him to go with them. Join Dave on his excursion and discover how nature and seven developmentally challenged vacationers transformed his life. You will laugh and perhaps cry, but you will never forget this story and the characters involved. Don Nordstrom is also the author of the very popular book, "The Binary Effects of God."
