Wow - ask a question and you get an answer! Such freedom!! The different units sound great and I see why you have kept them all.

I am afraid that when I was your age (you sound young), we were involved in work and children (4 sons) and many, many pets. We tried a little tent camping, but personally I thought it was a lot of work with small children and I really preferred to stay home (we have a little property out in the woods, so were not in an urban situation). Now it is just the two of us and a Toy Fox Terrier dog (5 lbs) who is sweet and loving at home, but gets ballistic when he sees cars and other vehicles, any other dogs, and strangers. I am afraid he is going to spend a lot of time in the camper while we do our thing. But that is better for him than a kennel. Maybe over the summer exposure to the sights and sounds of a campground will help him mellow a bit. Fortunately he does not bark when we leave him - just sleeps.

The high desert sounds wonderful - we have traveled a bit out west on business trips and would like to take a camping trip out there. It would have to be a rather long trip, I suppose. No flying out and renting a car as we have done in the past. We would have to plan out an itinerary and it will definitely tax my compulsive obsession personality to be gone so long from home (I love my garden and greenhouse). But it is time to branch out. Maybe we will see some of your folks on the road somewhere.

Thanks Melanie but 47 isn't too young! Sounds like you have your own private camp area at home. Maybe a fgrv rally in your back yard?

Camp trip after work got delayed...ring gear in the truck has stripped teeth. Starter just zings so I had AAA bring it home. Looks like a floor jack and sliding the tranny back tomorrow for me. The lifestyle of driving 50 year old vehicles

Who else camped this weekend?

Well I just got back on Wednesday from my first trip of the year - a week in Oregon which included attending 3 days at the Northern Oregon meet. Had a few heavy rain days but also got in some sunshine. Good news was it was in the high 70's on return to Vancouver, so washing the trailer was not a problem. On return got word that US Airways will this week be bringing me from Pennsylvania, a 10 week old service puppy in training, I am going to be raising for a year so will not be heading out next week-end either. Pup needs a few days to get use to his new digs and me before heading to his first fiberglas trailer meet in 2 weeks time. :-) Should be a great opportunity for him to socialize! LOL He is one of the black boys in this pile.....

Gibsonville to the ParkLiner factory for up to a week of warranty repair or modifications or whatever. While 006 is back home, we rented a 1st floor condo over on the Outer Banks. Great huh? First time out, and off to the factory, then a condo. We are looking forward to the trip though, and particularly coming home with it all fixed up! Plus we have 3 leisurely days to drag it home over the Memorial Day weekend.

We got to relax at Long Pine Key this weekend. Just steps away from the ocean.

Thank you for the new screen saver. That spot looks like one of the top 10 in my book.

Spent the weekend in Hartman Creek State Park near Waupaca, WI. I had a mountain bike race in nearby Iola today, so it was close to that.


Wife got some time to decorate "Taco" with some dot stickers. Something to make it a little cuter for the rest of the year! (Planning a body-off rebuild after this camping year is complete)

View from our campsite looking onto the lake:

Nate, that's a really pretty pretty view. And Letitia, you are also a lucky lady with such a sight right out your doorway. Loved the photos.

My first camping trip will be this Thursday.. group camping with friends on the west side of Michigan. After the winter and pseudo-spring we've had, I can really use a camping weekend!

Okay....who has plans this weekend to get some "away" time knocked out in your egg?

After I was stranded in the store parking lot last weekend while getting some supplies and towed into work, I installed a new flex plate in the tow rig and am now planning on disappearing Friday night for some RNR returning mid day Saturday. My Mother-in-law is coming Thursday ( big BBQ) and my wife has a girls dinner party scheduled at our house Friday night with girl pedicures and a chauffeured wine tour through several wineries on Saturday. Sounds like a good time to take the dogs out for an over night hike and spontaneous camp trip ....right?

Our VT is packed and ready to head out Friday morning for Turkey Run State Park in west central Indiana. The forecast is for rain on Friday, but we have a great screen room and cover that keeps us dry. We will spend 2 nights there before coming home on Sunday. This is the maiden voyage for us camping with our 2 munchkin cats (they have short legs!). There are about 10 other fiberglass units also planning to be at Turkey Run, so it should be a fun time.

I'm going to the trailer for some "camping" on Monday. Finally good weather. 5 more sleeps then I'm there. I'm not actually pulling the trailer anywhere. We have it at one of those campgrounds where you pay by the year (definitely the smallest trailer in the place). We live in the city so driving out there is the getaway. Of course we can pull it out for a trip any time we want and will do so this summer for exploring.
Meanwhile, any time in the trailer, sitting still or not, is quality time
