So where did everyone camp for the Holiday?

We spent our Holiday at Artillery Ridge in the Gettysburg area. It was our 3rd trip out with the new camper and our first time at Artillery Ridge. The sites seem to be a little too close but we had a great time with 4 other camping friends.

I wish that my son was there but he was busy camping out in a bunker in Afgan doing his job in the US Army, this is his 2nd tour in two years along with thousands of other young men and women looking over us as we Honor the Survivors and the Fallen from the past. May God Bless Them All

Johnson-Sauk Trail in Kewanee, IL. It's an annual trip that we have with several of our friends. While Friday was a beautiful day, it rained the rest of the weekend. The kids played outside when they could, and it didn't bother us too much as we had an EZ-up awning to sit under by the fire and have some cocktails. That is at least until Sunday afternoon when the rain came down at a rate of 3-4 inches in a couple of hours.

That's when this happened to our EZ-UP tent.......Just couldn't hold up to the weight of all of the rain.....



I am now looking for replacement parts for that one......


And this was the view outside of our camper door once the rain settled down for the first time....



That ditch was about 18-24" deep and we started to develop a small pond on that side of the camper....

And here is a little tip for everyone that might just bring back some memories....when it is cold and you have to walk through water to clean up outside and do something say like take down an EZ-UP tent, wrap a couple of plastic bags around your feet before you put your shoes on. Feet stay dry and somewhat warm, although your shoes will be soaking wet.....

Rockwood:
Send your son best wishes from the forum. How fitting you posted this as a Memorial Day tribute. I revere ALL our uniform servicemen/women for keeping our Republic safe. I'm sure I speak for the readers on the forum when I thank him for his service.

We spent a rather wet, windy, and cold weekend at Salisbury Beach State Reservation in Salisbury, MA. Winds were pushing us around most of the weekend with winds approaching 40+mph at times with heavy rain.

But of course a bad day camping is better than a good day working. Got caught up on some reading and family time.

I'm like a lot of folks who don't care to be on the highways during a major holiday weekend. But we still wanted to go camping, so we went to our local park (Hagan Stone Park in Pleasant Garden, NC) for the long weekend - just 10 miles away. Place was packed with some great people, the weather was perfect, and the new Solera was "all systems Go."
