Supposed to leave for our first trip of the season today. It got cancelled due to all the forest fires around here and heavy smoke making it not smart for people to be breathing in the air all day; especially little kids.
I tried to book at southern lake instead, far away from the fires, but our campgrounds are booked up here in March so no chance. As well, the entire province is covered in smoke, so while the southern lakes aren't a severe risk like were we were going, they are still not the best place to hang out all day and breathe in the air. You can't even see the sun here.
What makes it worse is that we bought our trailer last July and all the campgrounds in the province were booked up, so the only "camping" we got to do last summer was a couple weekends at the in-laws farm, and two nights at an actual lake. It's almost a year after a heavy investment of trailer and truck, and we're stuck with days off work and nothing to do. I'd like to say we could just do something fun at home or camp driveway, but the smoke here is so bad, I can't really have the kids outside for any length of time and we don't have air filters for the trailer like we do for our house.
Could be worse. Could be one of the families getting evacuated from their northern homes due to the fires. Still makes me sad though as the kids had counted down the days to go the beach and hang in the trailer.
