At one of our local campgrounds, the only thing the host did was throw huge family parties every weekend. They were gone by the end of July.

This was a 8 years ago. To this day when we play backgammon my soldiers are in the game. Kinda a good luck charm thing.
I found a bazooka guy in our trailer back in 2008 when bought it used. He's traveled with us ever since. He finds a new perch every time we go out. Grand kids now play "Find Bazooka Guy" when we go out.

We arrived a provincial park this summer to find the previous camper had left garbage piled up beside the fire pit and a pound of butter sitting in the fire pit.

I called the office and the garbage was removed.....I have no idea why the park didn't sent them a fine in the mail. They would have had the moron's contact information.

About 5 vehicles ago I bought a Ford conversion van, there was a "pirate head" carved out of a piece of coconut husk complete with eye patch and bandana... He's been hanging from my mirror ever since, and now even sports an earing

I did find a card-playing kitty cat at Algonquin Park once...

We certainly did... card-playing kitties are hard to come by and we didn't want to let this one get away. Hard to believe but that kitty is now 13 in human years.

It's cool, crazy and so very scary how fast those critters grow. Your beautiful kitty is 13 human years and my handsome dog is 11Click image for larger version

I have items behind on a few occasions, but all I have ever found was some "forced relaxation time." Once I found that I backed in on the wrong side of the hook ups. And that I learn from my mistakes.

It was 1968, I was a young lad of 8. Marten River Provincial Park. I found a plumb hatchet. I turned to into the office, that fall it arrived at my home by Royal Mail saying no one claimed it and it was mine. I use it every time to go camping to make kindling.

WOW, that kitty is really old, probably older than you. See the chart on this site. How to Calculate A Catís Age in Cat Years - Catster

We had one cat that lived to 19 years (92 cat years) and another that lived to 22 years (104 cat years). The chart only goes to 14 years.

Now who needs to show respect to whom?

As it happens we have got both kinds of kitty.




I had heard about the aging process and how the first two years are much faster growth (for the feline variety). So currently the four-legged one (five in human years) is nearly three times older than the two-legged one.

The real cat looks like the 22yo one we had. She had red fur and I always called her my little red head. Sadly we had to have her put to sleep last spring, she got to where she wouldn't eat, Vet said it was the best thing to do.

Was camping in a state park in northern minnesota and was sitting in a lawn chair watching the boats on the lake and looked down and found that a skunk was in the fire ring looking for anything eatable after a while the skunk looked at me and then went to the next camp site fire ring.

When we go to campgrounds we often frequent, we like to play this game. Ocean Lakes is one of our favorites for this.

We'll take one of their arcade tokens or maybe some quarters and my sons and I will each try to hide them somewhere and see if they make it until our next trip. I hid an arcade token in a fairly open spot on the putt-putt course back in July and it was still there last month. Unless we go back before our next trip next July, we'll check it then to see if its still there.

Maybe one day I'll get good enough to hide a $20.
