Camp with the Parents and some old friends, smoke a couple turkeys in the pit, dressing, salads, T-giving in September. Horseshoes, beer, music and lies. Been doing it for about 14 yrs and no plans on stoppin'. Even dad with his cancer scare a couple years ago wouldn't stop him from coming. I guess he figures he showed me the way for camping early on and wants to make sure I still "get it". Been camping for 32 years now ( out of 38) , I think I'm wise enough now to start a fire but ole dad still has to tell how he showed us "scouts" how to do it.
I think I'll have to thank him again this year in front of our group for "Showing me the way". I love that man! Now that I'm older it's not real hard to tell him he was right, but I hate to 'cause it goes to his head.
I can only hope my 16yr old son feels the same way when he gets older.

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

Camping near Lake Lure, NC. But this will be our first trip further than 5 miles from home with our new rig.

For those of you goin to Myrtle Beach, we really enjoy Ocean Lakes. But since you are goin for Labor Day, prepare to be surrounded by crotch rocket motorcycles all up and down the Myrtle area. Memorial Day and Labor Day are both Bike weeks. We went down one Labor Day weekend not realizing and found it pretty hard to do much without being crowded by the bikes. Lots of rowdy street racing attitudes and (not trying to be racist but....) Black Bike Week, as it is known, is not always the best atmosphere for family outings. Seems these people have very little respect for the ears of young children so the language can get pretty loud and raunchy. For the most part, if ya have no intentions of go outta the campground, you wont have much trouble. And most of the campgrounds there have everything you would ever need inside the gates.
Good Luck and I hope everyone has a great holiday.
