Due to product contents this is restricted to CONUS only please (sorry but regs are regs.) The contest is open to any and all who are here. I will let it run for a few days, maybe as long as a week but don't wait until it is too late!

I'm sitting this one out, because I already won a bottle of the fantastic Lime. But I would still like to share a memory.

My favorite summer memory would probably be all the camping. We would cook over an open fire, fish, swim in the lake all day, ride 4x wheelers, shoot, explore, and all sorts of other things.

Favorite summer memory is when our family vacationed in the Bahamas. We took my mom and my wife's mom also. First time either of them had left the country.

I'm in! Favorite summertime memory is walking down the beach as a kid at night. There was a huge storm that day and the beach was covered in huge clumps of seaweed. It was ugly and dissapointing...until I discovered that the clumps of seaweed were crammed with small jellyfish which glowed when disturbed. I spend hours running down the beach kicking clumps of seaweed, leaving a glowing trail behind me.

I spent a week every summer with my mom's parents in PA. Before my mom got her first car, a Corvair btw, we'd take the train from Union Station in DC. She'd get us a compartment that ad it's own little bathroom and a fold down bed where I'd take a nap. Eating in the dining car and going thru the tunnels are my fondest traveling memory. I loved when we'd have a steam engine, which my mom referred to as a "cow catcher", because it was slower than a diesel and therefore te ride was longer! For me this was the best!

One of my favorite summertime memories is one from later in life.

My parents moved away for my dad's job when I was 18. Over time while we always talked, we were never real close.

Well as time went on, my dad and I both fell in love with motorcycles. One of my favorite memories were when he and I went and picked up his first brand new bike together. It felt amazing sharing that with memory with him. He had worked so hard for so long and truly deserved a brand new bike. Especially one that he picked out and fully customized to his liking. He was completely overjoyed with it. I love my Dad, he is a wonderful man.

Not for the contest as I have all three aftershaves and enjoy them greatly, but this memory lives forever in my mind. Back in the late 60's our large family of 7 children always went camping at Cook's Forrest State Park in Pennsylvania every summer. We always took my Grandma along. One evening after supper she went for a stroll. We were all sitting along the front porch when we heard Grandma giving a mighty yell and before long she came into view pursued by three bears, a Momma bear and 2 cubs. She ran, at a stately pace downhill, they gave chase. She turned and ran up the hill...so did they. Our heads went back and forth as Grandma went back and forth up and down the hill a number of times. Not a single one of us children felt brave enough to rescue Grandma...it was beginning to look grim.
Without much warning, the screen door slammed open, and my very tall and very big father was suddenly on the porch with a 'what the heck are you kids staring at?' question to all of us!! He quickly took in the scene of his Mother and the 3 bears. In a leap that was a surprise considering his bulk, he jumped off the porch, over the unlit camp fire circle and ran to her rescue. He picked her up with no thought to the bears and ran her to the cabin. We watched in amazement. When he plopped her down on the porch she said ' Louis!, I had the situation completely under control...I was walking those bears!" We still laugh about this even though both my Grandma and my father are no longer with us.

My favorite summertime memory was taking my young (at the time) family across the USA, camping from California to Pennsylvania and back. My boys were 4 and 6 and now they are 17 and 19! My wife and I became quite good at making and breaking camp...

Only seems right to share one here...

I have been an Assistant Scoutmaster for nine years in our Boy Scout troop. I became known as the "Summer Camp Scoutmaster" because I went with the boys for the week. The other adults were amazed I could do it and I could only tell them I would never miss it. Those days are gone now but how the adults would howl upon my return and submission of an email recapping the escapades and misadventures of the week.

It is remarkable what will happen to boys at that age, some of it self-inflicted. I could always count on my annual emails including raccoons raiding the tent of the boys who had squirreled away any food rather than putting it in the "bear bag" which was strung between trees. On occasion there were stitches involved, poison ivy, fish hooks, skinned knees, soggy shoes, dry heaves from dehydration, home sickness and on and on.

The best part - as per BSA regs - was as the adult I was there for safety and security. All questions asked of me were redirected to the Senior Patrol Leader. It was a blast working with the boys and encouraging them as they advanced in rank.

My favorite summertime memory is the cruise my mom took me on when I was 7. She was a travel agent and didn't make much money so big vacations were usually out of the question. She must have been ableto get a good deal to be able to take that trip. As an adult, I now have a much better grasp on the sacrifices she maderaising me.
