Lastest Camping Trip
This summer has been tough. With the hot temps we've had, nobody has been camping around here. This past weekend the high's finally were reasonable, mid 90's and the lows around 70º.
Since the LaCrosse is in for some minor warranty repairs I hooked up the pop up, loaded up the wife, a couple of grand daughters and a few supplies then headed out for the local SP. We were one of 4 campers all weekend. In this campround there are over 70 RV W/E sites, many W/E tent sites and numerous primative tent sites.
Friday evening we went down to the boat ramp and the kids and I waded in the water. I sliped, fell, knocked one of the kids down. Neither of us were hurt and we all had a good laugh until I realized my cell phone was in my pants pocket! I took the battery out, dried it the best I could and let it set overnight. The next morning it worked just fine.
We have a pontoon boat at the marina and I spent most of Saturday working on the boat lift. Last week's storms did a little damage, but nothing I couldn't take care of myself. Of course the boat's battery was dead so I had to hook it up to the charger.
Fishing was almost non-existent, but the kids did manage to catch a few small catfish. So they had fun. One pulled my wife's favorite pole in while she was helping one of the kids and her other pole broke when she hooked a decent size gar! She's still a little upset about all that.
The kids and I had a good time swimming. The water felt especially nice in the late afternoon at the end of a hot day.
The wild life is getting brave. The deer came very close and didn't spook too easy. The squirels seemed to like hanging around the pop up. Racoons woke us up in the middle of the night scratching at the door. We rescued one Saturday morning and another one Sunday morning from the dumpsters.
All in all we had a great time. It was nice to camp again without 100º+ temps.
We didn't take very many pics, but here's a few;
