Nice list Lyndon! I also like the way you include the daily details. We. too, keep a daily log.

We also walk each campground loop and write down the specific numbers of the other campsites in the campground that are nice, in case we pass that way again.

You could easily include those details on your "daily" sheet.

>>we seldom use the same camps

Lyndon, it's something we started doing, long ago ... and even though I realize campgrounds are sometimes renovated and renumbered, we've been pleasantly surprized by returning to campgrounds to which we never thought we'd return.

Besides, our ritual of walking the entire camping, writing down that campsites # 24, 45, 5 and 17 are nice is Pam's way of getting me off my campchair.

Steve>>if I get distracted

Wow! What organization! I'd probably lose the grease pencil in the process of getting everything ready to go. I know, I know, you said it was attached ... but where there's a distracted will, there's a way.
