Picked up our Scamp 19 in Backus MN on 03/15. Not as severe cold weather camping as we anticipated. Had frost a couple of nights, but daytime temps in the 50's. We considered cutting a hole in the floor & heading out onto the lakes to catch some walleye

We went........promises of warm weather fizzled - though the rest of the state had it! On the coast at Grayland State Park Saturday, first day of spring, was a stormy, cold day and night. But it was SOoooooo good to get out and go, even if we had to hunker down in the trailer more than we'd like, and long walks on the beach were blustery.

Not cold like pictured above - just classic March!

Photos here:

So we are off, planning April's weekend, May's vacation and wishing all you in the more northern and easterner climes a spring that will soon arrive!

Penney,

I loved the photos. Looked at the Rialto Beach shots and the four directions beach art really caught my attention. Thanks for the picture of the historic lights in Paradise Inn. I have a friend who will really enjoy that.

Thanks Nancy, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos, it's nice to share. Come visit Washington sometime (perhaps you have).

Here is a page with more photos of those lights, they are absolutely stunning, so large and with such beautiful botanical prints. I was so taken by them, I wanted to just stare at them (which is a bit hard on the neck!)

Penney,
Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures. Even though I have lived in Washington for over 35 years I haven't seen all the places in your photo travel pictures- more places to add to my travel wish list now.
Deb

Yes, thank you for sharing the great pictures. I just cannot wait myself to go out with my little daughter to explore places with Cafe Egg! Among other little weekend trips, we have two lined up to the shores of Lake Michigan, on the WI side.

Gerda you will love your Escape! What an original, and cute, name you've picked for it!

Deb - what will come next when you sell your Bigfoot 5th wheel? Sounds like you still plan to travel and enjoy the beauty of our corner of the world!

So glad you both enjoyed the photos - there is so much to explore in the NW, much diversity in what nature has to offer. We plan to head east of the mountains for our May vacation, but not before another ocean trip in April to the north coast - what we here on the Olympic Peninsula call 'our coast' - but which is really everyone's as it is part of the Olympic National Park!

Penney,
We already have that covered as far as when the Bigfoot 5th wheel is gone, we will stay with Bigfoot we decided, just a different model which will work out better for us. I hope we run into you and Mike at some of the meets this camping season.
Deb

Great pictures Penney - I'm glad to hear that you and Mike are out camping (even if you were wishing you had long-johns!)

I've been walking past my trailer each morning and wondering "is it time this weekend to de-winterize?" Then I see all the green guck that will have to be washed off and think "well, maybe another few weeks" . At this rate, my first trip will be Spring NOG in April.

You've inspired me though - maybe I'll fit in a 3 day weekend before then.

Hi Anne!

We went on our weekend with a dirty trailer, I was waffling so much about going, just had to pack up and GO! Washed the trailer yesterday. It seems to take a shake-down trip to remember everything we needed to put back in the trailer and remember what we do! The older we get it might need two shake-down trips to get into the trailer groove!

Just pick a weekend and go - you've got so many wonderful options not far from home! And Jack and Molly will love it!

Penney

Deb - There are sure a lot of Big Foots out there - we saw three over the weekend.

The meets seem to fall on weekends we have other commitments - at least the spring NOG and the WA one in June. Hopefully we will make it to the fall NOG again - a nice way to end the 'season'. Do let us know if you travel this way - we love running into and visiting with egg-folks camping here on the peninsula!

Penney:

Thank you for those wonderful pictures! You started off asking for encouragement for doing some early camping and ended up giving great encouragement to others. Well done!

Brian
