Going camping, Who else?

Hello everybody,
Just wanted to see who is willing to share if they have gone or are getting ready to go camping for the first time this year. I'm in Kansas so the weather is just getting enjoyable. We sold our old TT and are getting ready to try out our new Sandpiper 365saq at lake Wilson this weekend, so excited to spend time with the family and friends (also use the outdoor kicthen). Hope everybody has a safe and enjoyable summer.

We have our first trip planned for a long Easter weekend down to Lake Texoma. We have 30 nights already reserved so far for the upcoming season without anything booked yet for July or August. Enjoy your first trip out!

Thanks Randy
Wow 30 nights reserved. I think we have about 18 for this season. My wife is a teacher so her and the kids pretty much live at the lake during the summer and there will be many more than that on the days camped counter. Lol

Hey Kris,
We do a lot of weekend get aways. Try to catch a lot of the State Parks. Besides our trip to Texoma we have two longer trips planned. Going down to Georgia in June to see my kids and then the Mt. Rushmore trip in September. We'll work a few more in during the summer as well. What lake does your family visit?

I have the week off so we r headed for south padre island tx n the morning. Not a long drive and we go there often. We love the beach, fishing and just hanging out in the puma grilling steaks and consuming lots of Colorado kool aid. I'm already hitched and packed. I'll stop and get some groceries on the way to SPI in the morning.

It`s autumn in Australia and a great time for camping as it`s extremely busy over summer, especially on the coast as everyone wants to be at the beach. We`ve had a very wet summer with terrible floods in a large area of New South Wales, the state we live in.
We set off on a 28 day trip at the end of Feb. intending to camp at 8 different locations, however we had to return home after 2 nights as everywhere we wanted to camp was in the flooded areas.
Hopefully we can get away on thurs. for about 10 days.

Enjoy your summer everyone, after looking at some of the photos I can see you have plenty of great camping locations that are very well set up. We tend to camp a lot more casual than you do.

Cheers, Robyn.

Randy,
We go to lake Wilson. We will stay in different parks though out the summer. I have been to Mt. Rushmore before I was married and hopping to get the wife and kids that way some day too. The Crazy Horse mounment is really intersting also as is the Badlands. Kamp K, it sounds like you have your whole summer planned already. Keep the posts a coming.
Be safe and have fun.

The weather was so great, we had to hit the road...

Toadstool Geographic Park - Near Crawford, Nebraska


I've had people tell me they thought I was joking when I said there was a hand planted National Forest in Nebraska...
