Backyards made for more than cooking out

   Every summer, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) promotes camping by encouraging families to pitch a tent in their back yard.
   When you think about it, it's a pretty good idea. Those new to camping won't have far to go in case of    a storm that my erupt during the night. The same is true with restroom facilities.
   And if you don't care to cook breakfast outdoors, the kitchen is just a few steps away. You don't even need the ice chest. Just use the fridge and everything will stay cold.
   But cooking over a fire is all part of camping. If you can work the two in, you're in for a great experience. It can be as simple as hot dogs or burgers, or more elaborate like marinated steak or chicken.
   The event across the country is set for June 22. But really, anytime is a good time to pitch the tent and roll out a sleeping bag.
