    Anyone else like to Camp?

    This time of year, the cabin fever really starts to set in, this year seems especially bad with all the snow...I go look at our Pop Up in the Garage at least a couple times a week just to get excited for better weather...

    Anyone else like to camp? Been busy making reservations and planning trips. Our highlights this year will be Kansas City in Mid May, Destin FL area right after school gets out and Pomme De Terre State Park for 4th of July and several local camping weekends with friends.

    Backyard with the granddaughter and RAGBRAI - that is enough for me.

    Something about all those years in the Army 'going to the field' that gives you your fill of camping for a lifetime.


    Everyone is entitled to their opinion - no matter how wrong they may be.

    Re: Anyone else like to Camp?

    I love camping. Being outside, sitting around a bonfire, drinking some beer, smoking a cigar. The last time I went to the Boundary Waters was a blast. Canoeing, camping, fishing, all alone in the wilderness is awesome. It was really weird not seeing another person in 7 days, besides the group I went with.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Re: Anyone else like to Camp?

    We family camp at Ledges each fall, normal family activities, bike riding, hiking, wading in the water around the ledges

    In college however, we regularly group camped there....Beer, Beer and more Beer. The good thing about the group camp is it was far enough away from the family campers that we didn't get too many complaints!

    Re: Anyone else like to Camp?

    I've worked at a camp in western Montana for kids, teens, and young adults with cancer for the past two summers. Seeing kids who wouldn't have been able to do some of the things that we take for granted while they're out there really makes it worthwhile. Definitely makes me not care a bit about sleeping out under the stars on the actual "camp-out night" (campers normally stay in cabins that are pretty modern, really). Anyway, I'm looking forward to the summer so I can get out there again.

    I can't wait.

    Re: Anyone else like to Camp?

    Its tough to even dream about camping when the camper and boat are sorrounded by
    4-6 foot snow drifts.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Great hiking. Also you can take canoe trips on the DSM River out of Boone from Seven Oaks. Really cheap.

    Over all a nice park.

    I've gone from tent camping as a kid all the way through a couple of pop-up campers with my son to now a motorhome. The motorhome is itching to hit the road as we didn't take it anywhere this winter. It's been a long winter! I haven't made any plans yet where we'll be going, but one trip will be Table Rock Lake to Nashville and back. Tailgating at the football games is a given.
