We camped and hiked in Niigata Oct 2017. I challenged myself by putting myself in a situation where I am not comfortable. Not the camping aspect, but the social aspect. Sometimes I do not work well with others, and I had to be around (and a lot of the time working) with others. I also had to do a lot of waiting, witch is usually fine, but waiting for other people that are falling behind is not my strong suit. I did develop better relationships with some people I usually wouldn’t. I can recall many times on the expeditions where I collaborated well with people that do not do much camping or are not outdoors people. Someone like me who has done lots of out doors things, like camping (Im from Texas and Tennessee) really enjoyed the expeditions and I was challenged by all of the collaboration and social aspects but I felt I was up to it.
