Nycindie, what great advice! Not a lame example at all! I've often wondered how to strike up conversation in the famous Produce Aisle of the grocery store! I can be rather introverted socially, unless it's a business function where I'm in my element and I let my Type A business executive personality shine through. Otherwise, someone smiles at me across a pile of Apples, I smile back and scurry away. Lol.

You are absolutely right! We do crave it. It's a basic human requirement.

SLJ, some great advice on here! Good luck camping! I'm sure you'll do great!
