Camping on the Weekend

We had such a great time!! It was cold and we had hail and we didn't care! Why? Because we were in our brand new trailer!!!

We had such a great time. We went to Bon Echo and the park is lovely. It's fully treed and has a great history. It was donated to National Parks by The Denison Family and they had run an inn on the property. This inn was a retreat area for the "avant garde" - artists, poet's etc in the 1920's. It was fantastic! We will definitely be going back.

Here is a picture of my old Dog Cole. He loves camping. In one of the camper pictures you can see Springer. Springer is a young dog - 2 and a bit. The two of them had a great time. Cole is stiff now and older but he is very loyal and devoted to his kids.
I can't wait to go camping again. We had fun figuring out all the stuff we needed to know about the camper. Like filling the water tank - before you go to your campsite and set up! Filling it afterwards with a two gallon bag just made it all rustic!
I've been camping since I was about 10 and it has always been in tents. I had told my family that if we wanted to continue camping, we were going to get a trailer. I'd had enough of tents, the mess, the rummaging for dishes in bins and the wetness when it rains. Getting this trailer will prolong my camping life for years to come!
Cheers, Denise

What a cool trailer, Denise! It's neat because it's a trailer, but it's still a tent...a, a tent...! Anyhoo - your pictures brought back all kinds of camping-in-theOlympics memories for me. Except we would go camping with our kitties, not doggies. What fun!

Oh - I put a link to your blog on my new blog! Come see me!

LOL - may word verification says vgyfok...veggy folk!

I love camping in a camper. My mom & dad had one like that. It's the best of both a tent & a trailer.Wish I could talk my DH into getting one!We use a tent to our van.
I got your ATC in the mail yesterday, on my birthday! What a nice little birthday surprise! Thank you!
