Review of Oregon Glamping Places

I first learned how to camp on my own the summer that my friend Elizabeth and I decided to camp out illegally on Mount Tamalpais.

I'm getting kind of famous on YouTube, you know. I poured my heart and soul into the viking thing, and I do enjoy the perks of being the viking spokesperson for Granlibakken.
