What would a chapter of your autobiography be called and can you give a brief summary of that chapter? It would be called Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy and it would just entail the relaxed nature of being a child. I would say childhood was probably one of my favorite time periods of life so far. Children are able to lost themselves in the routine of having everyone do things for them. It's great. So that chapter would be all about my childhood.

Many campers have been curious about the origin of your bucket hat, why are bucket hats so special to you? I'm a one bucket hat kind of man. I find a bucket hat that understands me and I stick with it. Everyone needs an adventure hat. I knew Campus Kids was going to be an adventure so I grabbed this hat from my closet. At first, I didn't think it was really me, but now after the summer has gone on I've realized it's completely me, it's apart of my soul.

Did you go to camp when you were younger? I went to a day camp on a smelly little reservoir in Highland Mills. It was a wonderful time, very formative, but nothing like the rewarding day to day lifestyle of Campus Kids.
