Spring Fever is really hitting me. The daffodils are blooming, the flowering plumb trees are out in full bloom. Can spring be far behind.
I got out Saturday and washed the Mountain Egg, fixed a binding rear landing gear, sanitized the fresh water tank, and polished the front window. Now I'm all set to go go go go...... Thinking about heading out this coming Friday for the upper Columbia River Gorge.

I think the only cure for Spring Fever is to go camping.

We took trips in October, November, December, and January.

Only some other obligations kept us from making trips with our Casita in February. We've got trips planned for March, April, May, June, July, and August. Will we take one in September? You bet! We just haven't planned it, yet. And every month that I can finagle some days off from work (fortunately, I get four weeks vacation a year).

The Brown Egg is almost ready for the trip from Georgia to Sheridan, AR. I will be leaving the 18th. I am so excited.

I am thinking about trying Mississippi Hwy 6, from Tupelo toward Arkansas. Has anyone traved this path?

Still cold here in NE Ohio, I have been in the sugarbush for 2 wks now but very little has happened only a couple small runs. Just reaching low 30s. Big warm up starting tomorrow so we will be busy the rest of the week. It looks like a big warmup and may be the last run. With the warm Jan we had the buds will move fast . For us when the sugaring is over spring has arrived and it is time to plow.

Where in NE Ohio do you live? My parents are in Concord and I have relatives in Mentor, Willowick, etc.

I don't see too many campers out their way. My poor parents were trying to help me find a 13' camper, but kept spotting horse trailers

It's coming folks - just hang in there! We went for a shake down run to Champoeg State Park (40 miles south of Portland on the Willammette River) last weekend. Since we are still fairly new at this we wanted to see what we remembered and what we forgot before we get too far from home. Lucked out, after showers Friday night, Saturday was beautiful, upper 50's, few clouds blowing by. Barbcue'd some ribs, went for 2 bike rides (saw a bluebird) and visited the historic log cabin where they were making sourdough bread and churning butter -had samples of course! Really helped our Spring fever! Ready to roll and can't wait for the next trip (even if it is snowing today! )

Last night, I-70 was closed, as hail storms and tornados ripped across Missouri, I was thinking that anyplace would be better than here.

Spring at Crater Lake, Oregon - must be spring, 'cause the road was plowed and we could get to the rim!

Those coming to Bullards Beach in July - there probabaly won't be snow up on Crater Lake, but you can't miss seeing it!

We got a bit of a fix. Went to the mouth of the Deshutes River for two nights. I think I should rename the campground to "Goose Poop Flats". There must have been 200 geese there. The weather was a bit cool and rained both nights. Misty Saturday morning, sunny Sunday morning. We a short walk in Saturday afternoon. At least we were out someplace.

Week after next we leave for eight days at Juniper Springs Campground in the Ocala National Forest in Florida.

Then, four days after returning from that trip, we leave for four days in the Cataloochee Campground in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Then, about three weeks later it's off to Hilton Head for four days.

Then, shortly after that, it's off for four days to Cashiers, NC.

Then, shortly after that, it's off to Beartree Recreation Area near Mount Rogers in Virginia for five days.

Then, after that...well, let's just say we're going to keep the Casita very busy this year.
