    Any campers out there?

    I mean real campers. Not those of you who load fresh towels and toiletries into a 40- or 60-foot long recreational vehicle and hit the road for places unknown or maybe known.

    June is the halfway point on the calendar and is highlighted by the longest day of the year: the official start of summer on Friday, June 21 this year.
