Campus Love Story: I was helping a friend who was an instructor for a UWM family camping class. When the last carload of students arrived at the weekend outing site, I noticed one young lady who got out of the car. She had the full regalia of outdoor gear on, and I only saw her from the back, but instantly was drawn to her. None of this made any sense at the time, but of course I got to know her over the weekend outing. That was in 1979. We have been together ever since, and married for the last 26 years. And yes, we still love camping!
