One of our best trips was wondering in Oregon and then camping our way back home in campgrounds along the Oregon coast.

Here's us inland on that trip camping in a field on a private ranch:

wonderful memory

Ours was at Vogel SP in GA. Christmas Eve, snow began to fall. It was soft and silent. The campground was half empty and those who were in adjacent campsites to ours all came out and admired the snow while offering each other hot chocolate around the campfires. Someone pulled out a guitar and we sang Christmas carols around the campfire while the snow was falling. Then we all decided to walk through the rest of the cg and sing carols for the other campers. Everyone was smiling. Everyone was pleasant.

Good times.

Stumbling on the Atherton Creek Campground in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. We checked out of Gros Ventre and moved to it.


Happy Motoring

Falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the shore. Have experienced this at several locations (Pacific/Atlantic/Gulf of Mexico/Gulf of St Lawrence), and it never gets old :-)

Thats a difficult question to answer as we have a great time just about everywhere we go. I guess our top of the list is Cherrystone VA. just hanging in the pine trees with a view of the Chesapeake. Something for everyone to do and everyone's is in a great mood.

Our big trip doing the loop from TN to the Olympic Peninsula to the Grand Canyon to all along the Gulf Coast from Galveston to Mobile then back home to TN. 10 weeks and almost 10k miles and still not enough time. Stayed in Packwood WA one night and in the morning stepped out the door to see 2 young elk standing not 20 ft. away. I stopped and watched them as they just gave me a look and kept on grazing.

We have honestly been blessed I guess for not having any bad experiences in our 6 years of camping. No neighbors from hell, no serious mechanical issues and no illnesses. We were 55 when we started our RVing and look forward to many more years of having fun with it.

There have been a lot of them. The absolute best have been horseback trips with a string of mules, raft and canoe trips on rivers, and hunting trips with my Dad and two brothers. There have been around 30 of those. Floating the Grand Canyon on a commercial trip for 276 miles was hard to beat. I enjoyed hiking the Chilkoot Trail from Alaska into British Columbia.

The best car camping trips were driving Route 66 in a '57 Chevy in 1969 to go surfing in California, and moving to California from the East Coast in 1972. That road trip took 6 weeks in a VW bus. Now I am retired and camp all the time, pretty much in every month. I like the low desert in winter.

Sitting by the camp fire on Washington's Olympic Penninsula and watching the Pacific surf rolling up the beach only a stone throw away. Unforgettable!
