It's a bit surreal to be camping on an island and sitting on a rocky ocean beach with a view of the Boston skyline. The soundtrack includes the crackle of campfire, the birds and other sounds of the forest...and planes coming in and out of Logan International Airport. After all, you're just minutes from the city. Make no mistake, though: this is primitive island camping. Even though you'll probably take a ferry to here and you can see the skyline in the distance, you must be 100 percent self-sufficient. Bring all your food, all your water, anything you need to cook with...everything.
