Camping Time


The wife and I made it out camping. It's been a while. We pull a 26' trailer now, but started with a tent when we got married. Then migrated to a pop-up trailer when the kids came along and finally to this trailer. We love to camp but just don't make it often enough. We have routines for packing and set-up and take down. When you don't go often, you get rusty. It's neat when we act as a team to do the tasks it takes to camp. We each have our jobs and it all works with little communications. And we get to relax a little more now without the kids. Less planning on how to fill time and less supervision required (other than the wife would still say she must supervise me).

I enjoyed reading through your blog. Looks like you have fun with your sketching. Keep it up. I only started recently too. I love how portable it is. Good Luck.

How nice you've been camping again! Must say, I'm just a tiny, wee bit jealous!!
I love camping, but since Rob does a lot of fieldwork in the summers, we just don't go any more. It reminds him too much of timeworking doing research and collecting data.
Thanks for sharing this journal spread. It's awesome!!!

Fun page and sounds like a fun time. Except for maybe those flying blood sucking, mud flinging guys!

I'm smiling. I love all of your work and you're an inspiration in journaling. Glad you got your A/C to work even w/ the bug issue:-). What a way to capture memories. Much better than a photograph. Thanks for the comments John.
