Normally, we don't travel in the summer -- crowds, dogs, kids.....

But had to go from home in SW MO to Philly for family wedding weekend before the 4th. Dry camped in back corner of wedding/reception/family booked hotel parking lot (booked room one night). Had a wonderful time.

Was planning to go to Boston to see an old friend, but east coast traffic spooked me too much, so we headed through TN and wound up at Mt. View AR.

As I never travel without musical instruments (plural), we had probably the best 4th in many years. Decent temps, breezes, rain at night, sun in daytime, old friends, fireworks, and, as usual, very inexpensive superb CG.

Back home after the weekend.

.....new TT (April) has been camped in for 36 nights and counting....

Took our Flagstaff 832okbs on her maiden voyage down to Guntersville Lake in AL. Had some rain which cleared to some awesome sunsets every afternoon. Grilling with the lake breeze a blowing, what a relaxing feeling. Going to love our second Flagstaff, will update profile when I get home next week. Great product, FR!

While in Vegas be sure to take a day trip to Valley of Fire state park, about an hour northeast of Vegas. Go for sunset, do some hiking first, the rock formations and colors are astounding. Rangers are very helpful too.

Great pictures bob dirt. Is that a Zamp solar panel you have? How long typically does it take to re-charge your batteries? I just had my repair shop add a Zamp plug to mine and am looking forward to trying it out for some dry camping.

Love that area of Oregon. Also loved Smith Rock State Park just north of you in Bend. No camping there but great hiking and watching all the rock climbers there.

We don't own an MBS but we spent a very peaceful 4th at Spruces campground on Navajo Lake in Utah. At 9200 ft it was cool, right on the lake that feeds the North Fork of the Virgin river which runs through Zion National Park. Great stop.

Yes it is a zamp. I didn't use much power the 5 days we were there. It was on/off cloudy, sunny, rainy. Batteries were always full when we returned from riding. Didn't use heat (low 50's at night) so not much drain on them. When I do use heat, the panel has the batteries full by lunch usually (120w).
