Last school year, I was working on a school project with my son. We had to dress it up some and needed basically some scrapbooking stuff. Our local Michaels and Hobby Lobby had several camping/travel related scrapbooking things...that you may want to add on your journal pages.

In 2004, when we bought our first MINI Cooper, we were given a "motoring journal" as part of our new car package. We never really used it for the Cooper, but have been using it since 2005 to log our motorhome trips. We log mileage, campsite locations, oil changes, etc. It has been very useful to help jog our memories about when we last visited places, etc.

I have thought about doing some of this with online/phone apps, etc. but the pen and paper are always right there and easy to use. :-)

Always meant to do this, and never got around to it.

wmtire, We used those items on our camp site sign....a golf bag for his hobby, of course. We used camping items, sleeping bags, lantern, etc. but I didn't see the RVs!

I have written in a journal the first night of each campground visit since 1992 when we purchased our first pop-up. Includes date, campground, site, number of days, animals/people with us or expected to visit, and thoughts of the day. I frequently read through the entries on subsequent trips and am reminded of the wonderful experiences over the years. Also chuckle over the 'sitting in the truck eating cheese curd with the dog, waiting for the torrential rains to let up so I can pop the camper' comments.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

Example: On our last trip (Lake of the Pines in TX) we were sittin outside with friends who camped with us...over at their RV, when we heard and felt a WHUMP...percussion explosion....looked across the lake, even got out a pair of binoculars...it looked like someone was fueling up a skidoo, let gasoline get on the hot exhaust and UP IT WENT!

Now that's a way to ruin a perfect camping weekend.

Just small memories like that. Reading back through it brings back the memories.

Too funny! I've kept a journal since we started in our Pop-up in 1998! Several campers since then but I always keep the current journal in the TV. Always a great reference manual for routes, tolls, funny stories, etc! We also pick up small magnets for the range hood best traditions EVER!

Oh yes..from day one when we bought our first camper Dec 31, 2009. After almost 400 nights camping, over 40,000 miles towing and visiting 37 states it's interesting to look back at places we have been, sights we have seen, friends we camped with, notes on what we liked or didn't like about each CG and the area plus what it cost per night, along with dates, times departed-arrived and routes driven and the cost of fuel.

I don't wanna keep up with fuel cost. It's supposed to be pleasant memories!

If my kids wind up with our journals, I wonder what they'll think.

My youngest was the first to find out we bought the RV...I predicted what he'd say...I was right;

You leavin it to me in your will?
