First trip of 2013

I went camping Friday after work until Sunday afternoon. Very quiet. A few trucks went by my camp, and the snowmobiles went by several times, but overall very peaceful. Even the snowmobiles were not loud. I guess the snow absorbed some of the sound. One truck had 4 tracks instead of tires. My guess is that they were expensive. I had a small fire, wondered around the side of the mountain for a while. I saw a few crows and turkeys, but no mammals. I did see tracks of a fox, deer, and rabbits. Read a book, napped, and just relaxed. It was a very good trip.

I just got my new trailer and here in Iowa I have been looking at a good weekend to go. As we go all throw the winter. Was busy this weekend. Looking at this coming weekend. I am glad that you got to go as there is not very many people out there but some hunters and the wild life. Keep up the camping!

It was a good weekend. If the weather doesn't prevent me from going I will be out again this weekend.

Sounds like a good time. I'll be camping next weekend with our Boy Scout troop for the annual Klondike Derby, so no camper, just a good ole tent

Our Klondike Derby is in February. Our troop doesn't camp. They would get extra points if they did.

Here are a couple. I am in the process of rehabbing the old trailer. I worked on the attached patio last year, and it is now useable. It still needs a ceiling, but $$$ is needed to finish it.
