We really should try to get together for some camping after the honey do lists are closer to caught up!

Even though my home looks over acres and acres of wild land, it's wonderful to get away. I've always loved the outdoors. I have mostly oaks trees around my home so going further up hill into the conifers is wonderful.

I love to travel and having my little Marshmallow allows me to do so with ease, as I travel with my dog. I love the comfort of sleeping in my own bed as well. I've never liked motel/hotels, at all.

I gave up backpacking and sleeping on the ground when I purchased my trailer.

I love meeting people and what better people than campers. Especially ones that give you fish.

Yes sireee....sorry I didn't have my camera so I can't show you the 3 big fish that I acquired. All I did was said, "Hey, maybe I'd better go buy a fishing license" That brought the fellow over asking if I liked fished.

Evidently, he fishes but no one in his family likes fish. Anyway, what did I say to him....."so when is your next fishing trip???"

Why do we camp?
To see new and different places......vistas to behold.

To be out in nature......to interact with nature if only slightly.

To have a place to stay as we travel.....to be able to frugally travel more, farther & still be at home.

To enjoy being with family.....to get to know each other better.

To add to ones experiences....to see our world....more up close & personal.

For exercise....body & mind.

For birdwatching & wildlife viewing.

For fun....entertainment....finding joy.

For edification....learn more about our state, country, people.

For finding a cool spot away from the heat.

For testing ones creativity & ingenuity.....to be able to live outside of the box.

For living without bells.....without time restraints.

To do these things in comfort.

Joy A,
Your story about the fish, reminded me when we were doing an overnight at Heron Lake State Park in Northern New Mexico (1997) on our way home from a long trip to Canada. My son was out riding his Mt. Bike, he returns with a very large trout. A man asked him if he'd like it. We went to clean it and it was already cleaned. We had a very delicious supper that evening.

When I retired I promised myself there would be no schedules to live by and no heavy planning. The camper allows me to get further away and still be comfortable in the middle of nowhere.
I can stop or stay just about anywhere that suits me, I like meeting new people, then there is the adventure just as I remember the book Tom Sawyer.

Now I can live it.

Thumbs up

I do dog agility, and this year with the Scamp has been wonderful being able to stay on-site at competitions and have my little home away from home for me and my pup. I'll never go back to hotels or a tent if I can help it! This is much more relaxing and I enjoy the after-hours scene with the other rv agility folks, too.

We don't go camping to 'rough it' we go camping to 'smooth it'

Ditto. We love to get away every so often and enjoy the woods, but love our house and yard too, so our camping is mainly done locally, and for just a few days at a time. When we travel great distances we still like to fly and rent a car so we don't have to be away from home for too long. My wife's quilting hobby takes up three rooms in our house and she suffers withdrawal when she's away from her set-up for more than a few days.

Hey Alf...
Thanks, I was hoping it was over on the Ontario or Quebec side. But I'll still put it in my book of nice spots.
