Last month when carmaker Subaru invited me to go camping for four days in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park, I was hesitant. Sure, I figured that it would be fun to road test the latest vehicles—including the Forester and the 2010 Outback—amid the glorious landscape just outside of Jackson Hole, but, frankly, I haven’t gone camping since I was 10. And that was in my backyard in Tampa, Florida, and we quickly ran inside screaming when the sprinkler system turned on 'round 3 a.m. My friend Diane quipped, “You? Camping? Send me a photo.” Even my partner John laughed, “Dubious. Very dubious.”
