Top Ten Tuesday: 11 Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders of a Camping Trip

Itโ€™s another Top Ten Tuesday, now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!

Top Ten Tuesday at The Green Mockingbird

Way back in November, a TTT topic was all about “characters who would make great leaders of _______”. From brainstorming about that list, I came up with a group of characters who would be more helpful in outdoorsy, adventurous situations. SO, it morphed into this week’s freebie choice: 11 characters who would make great leaders of a camping trip!

From real-life experience, I know you want camping family/friends who are dependable, capable, and able to handle unexpected things. This group would be excellent because of their skills and general knowledge of their respective environments. Some would be helpful in an emergency, others reliable for their survival skills and general adventurous natures.

11 Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders of a Camping Trip

1. Tyler Hawk from Count Me In by Mikal Dawn

I mean, he leads his own ADVENTURE expedition company in the pacific northwest. Paragliding or rafting, anyone?

2. Benny Citrone of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police from A Lesson in Love and Murder by Rachel McMillan

Hello, a Mountie who explores the northern territories? AND has a poetic side!?

3. Jesse Bird from The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori Benton & 4. Sion Morgan from A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

Wilderness and frontier survivors. They can track, hunt, and provide with the best of them.


5. Sadie Boden from No Way Up by Mary Connealy

Her rock climbing skills alone would be handy!

6. Griffin McCray from Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey & 7. Ford Brayden from The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett

Griff, a park-ranger-turned-detective, is more than capable of handling anything that comes his way. And Ford— well, his park ranger knowledge of the wilderness, foliage, and axe-wielding skills make him capable, too!


8. & 9. Brothers Pete AND Sam Brooks from Rescue Me by Susan May Warren

Many leading characters from this series would work on this list. But these two….. between their search-and-rescue skills and their general hilarious banter (when they’re not at odds with each other), they would both be assets to a team!

10. Paul Rustin from Reclaimed by Jennifer Rodewald & 11. Reese Mitchell from A Twist of Faith by Pepper Basham

I couldn’t make this list without at least a couple good ‘ole country boys! Paul fits that persona, and more. Reese, well, his skill set begins with fire-starting and doesn’t end there! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Your turn! Who would you add to this list? What did you pick for your freebie topic? Share in the comments!

  1. Awww! Benny. So glad to see him on this list. As I remember, I was quite fond of his character.

    Glad to see a Dani Pettrey character on this list (of course!!) and “Rescue Me.” I’m so far behind on reading Susan’s latest series (pretty sure I only read the first book), but I do know I’ll love them once I get around to the reading part. ๐Ÿ˜€

    …also, this is SUCH a creative and fun topic, Courtney. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, Rissi! Yes, Benny is one character who needs to have his own story (Rachel McMillan knows my thoughts well ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

      I know you will love Susan’s! Each book just gets better and increases the complexity of the whole ongoing story/development of each character. Happy Tuesday!

    • Thank you! YES, Jeremiah is also a resourceful wilderness survivor… he totally proved himself in Many Sparrows. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you! Me too, Karen! I’m always ready for a camping trip…. as long as there is bug spray for pesky mosquitoes.
