My Dad recently sent me an album of the yearly Deobald family camping trip. Unable to attend, due to my 12-month departure to the subcontinent, I had only those photos coupled with last year's memories to pacify me.
Memories... jogged by images of Kubb. Soaring higher on the desire-o-meter than even hot dogs, three bean salad, or cold beer in the Saskatchewan summer heat, Kubb was easily the best part of last year's trip. It's a back-and-forth yard game played with a series of wooden blocks. The rules are simple, making the game a relaxing past-time for everyone in a large family or group of any age. Though you can apparently buy the blocks online for a tidy fifty bucks, ours are hand-made (thanks Dad) and look much like this:
Pretty darn cool.
