Greetings all : )
For me it feels like it's been many many "moons" since posting here...though i have been reading and keeping up with the fiberglass family happenings.
Cari and i spent a wonderful week at one of our favorite places...Sunset Falls Campground
near Battle Ground Washington. I've written about many of our adventures there in the past. This trip was a bit unique in a couple ways...
1) We met a fellow fiberglass owner : ) ...in the campsite next to us in a Casita
17 pulled by a Toyota Tacoma. Hopefully he will have the time to join in on the North Oregon Gathering coming up in October at Fort Stevens State Park in my home town on the oregon coast (Warrenton/Astoria).
2) Cari and i spent 5 wonderful nights under the stars in our two expedition-ready hammocks. Yea, i know, i can hear your thoughts ; ) Why would you choose to sleep outside in a hammock when you've got a nice rig all set up for cozy zzzzz time and beyond. Well... why do people jump out of perfectly good airplanes with a parachute strapped to their backside? Cuz it's cool.
Really though, as much as the van's Froli Sleep System
is the best mattress setup we've ever slept on...even it does not have the amazing comfort level of either of the hammocks (her's
) we had hanging from the trees. The rest & sleep is beyond what we have experienced in a regular bed, and while there is the issue of no-cuddling once in our hammocks...it brings spontaneity to a whole new level in any healthy-romantic relationship.
This week's adventure was the first of our official camping season... we have one week set aside each month from now till the fall
NOG, with plans to visit our usual places here in the PNW. . . July = QuartzCreek near Sweet Home Oregon, August = Lower Falls CG near Cougar Washington, September is back to Sunset Falls CG, then to the fall
NOG in our neighborhood (Ft. Stevens)
Cari and i hope all of you have a safe and wonderful camping season wherever, and however that may be.
