Camping pastimes

With the dawn of 2013 camping season ahead of us. Just wondering what everybody does to pass the time while camping. For example what kind of drinking games, day activities and night activities do you guys do to pass the time. Beers by, disc golf and battle ship ( every time a ship is hit you take a drink) to name a few and start things off...

we don't camp to play drinking games.

we camp to enjoy nature and get a break away from work and our daily routines.
we go out and explore the area, take hikes, bike rides, sightsee. at nite, we eat, sit around the campfire and tell stories and enjoy a campfire.

if i wanted to play drinking games, i can do that at home.

I am looking forward to cooking up a few steak dinners on the outdoor grill, or better yet, over the campfire, while enjoying my favorite beverage, COLD BEER.

We're on a seasonal site so we camp to spend time with all the friends we've made there. We also go canoeing, fish, hike, pot lucks, and explore the local area. At night we get together at somebodies site to share a fire, conversation, and drinks.

We dry camp most of the time. If we can we bring our granddaughter with us, we do. This May our 1 year old grandson will come up for a weekend, with his parents. We don't camp for just a weekend anymore. We camp with our friends in the same area. We do enjoy a few drinks. We cut wood for the fire that usually goes pretty well all day and into the night. We very seldom cook over the open fire anymore but it's a get together place for all of us. The younger generation who come up with us older folks, usually get out on the dirt bikes, just like we used to, and enjoy the many miles of trails that are around the area. We may go for a walk but then again we may not. We've been camping up there for 34 years now. It's just great to be able to sit, lay, stand or whatever and enjoy the nature that is around us, visit with old friends and watch the real young generation walk in our footsteps.

I think you'll find a common thread thru a lot of the answers and that is relax, take it easy, and enjoy the quiet outdoors. The DW and I enjoy just setting under the awning, reading, listening to the radio, and watching everyone else carrying on trying to set-up camp.

This is why we bought our first TT, my wife love hanging around the fire watching both our dogs and " people". I love fishing, cutting wood and exploring the area ( forests / area).
We bought a TT with bunks so we could bring friends who might not go camping ( city slickers) and wanted to get them to fall in love with the idea of fresh air. And just maybe, grow our group to include fellow " turtle people"

Thanks for all your inputs, we love a nice steak cooked over a fire. Can't buy that at the Keg! May long weekend marks our first trip, 34 days and counting!! See you out there
