Post Camping Pic`s of A-Frames

I think it would be cool to see some camping pic`s with your A-Frames.
Your pic`s don`t have to be anything fancy, just a couple at the site .

I just got back from a quiet solo camping trip, at Little Orleans CG W.Md. I had a permanent TT site there for over 17 years, the campground is really nice and the owners are good people.

My kind of camping. Nice looking area.
Looks like you are enjoying the Great Outdoors, in your hammock.

Nice pics everyone. Can't wait for 2012. I plan to buy my 122 in the spring. Figured why buy now, just to store it for 3 months.

Mike G, your leg hanging there looks like the zombies on Walking Dead ate everything but the boot!

D-mo, looks like the tree in pic 2 is about ready to grab your camper.

I have driven through the Little Orleans Campground and it looks very nice but I would be nervous getting the hybrid across that hill between 68 and the campground.

2011 Season

We got in 6 trips totalling 12 days since getting the A126 on Sept. 2nd, 2011. Not bad for a short end of season purchase.

Our campsite at an Illinois Corp of Engineers campground @ Lake Shelbyville:

I wish the A126 came with some cool graphics to dress up the tounge end roof panel.




This is our campsite a few weeks later at Camp Lakewood, Effingham, IL:


You can see Gary wearing his red cap down by the lake fishing behind our campsite:

Jeep4two, How is it pulling the trailer with a Wrangler? I was looking at the Wrangler as a tow vehicle, but the website said it can tow 2,000 pounds. What do you think?

Overall ok. I added a wd hitch to handle the tongue weight. The jeep is under powered without a trailer but it does ok. I have the automatic and will add a trans cooler in the spring. Remember the 4 door models are rated at 3500 lbs and 350 lbs tongue with the same engine and trans, so it's not over loaded if you use the wd hitch setup in my opinion.

Without the wd hitch, it was a little light in the front end.

Come on guys. I just put the trailer in the garage. Showing all of these great pictures makes me want to get it back out. Unfortunately, Ohio weather will keep it inside until at least March.

Please keep sharing. I am a glutton for punishment.

This warm weekend had me wanting to do the same. Was in the 60s here in Kentucky. Bring on the pics to get us through the holidays!

Here's a few from the first of some 60 days of camping in 2011. These were taken on our April 1-5 trip to central Nebraska to see the Sandhill Crane migration.

Williams Grove Speedway Pa., World of Outlaws race.
I was actually on the way home from a three day camping trip in W.Va., when a friend called and asked if I was going to the track, so I took a detour from going home and spent one more night camping at the track.







This is a cool HD video of a 410 sprint car at Williams Grove, the cars weigh about 1400lbs. and have over 900hp. Go to the 2.40 mark if you want to skip a tour of the track. Remember that this is on a dirt track.

Ok, some more photos from this summer and fall.

They are, from left to right:

Wild and Scenic Rivers park, confluence of Red and Rio Grande rivers, northern New Mexico (near Questa), June;
Methodist Cove Park, Harlan County Lake, south central Nebraska (near Alma), July;
Twelvemile Beach Campground, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Upper Peninsula of Michigan, September;
Lake Anita State Park, Iowa, October;
Ditto.

Some of the places we went, about 7,000 miles in all, but I didn't take photos of all of them. Silly me.

Next summer we plan to go up the ALCAN to Fairbanks and vicinity with a possible side trip to the arctic circle. I think we can't afford it, but the wife thinks we can (and she's the one with the MBA...). We'll see. We never would have thought about it if we were still motorcycle camping.
