We live very close to the boarder and will be shopping for a new comforter for the trailer in January.
make sure it's a real down duvet there's a lot of Imposters out there,but there's nothing like the mix of softness yet crisp texture of duck or goose, not to mention the lightness and the fact that it can be cool in the summers yet warm in the cooler temps.

Lots of memories.

Happy New Year to everyone on the forum.
Thanks for sharing that memory, I can almost hear the rain (which I also love ) and smell the hay! i will add one more picture to my perfect morning and that would be playing scrabble in bed (on the iPad) on a rainy morning

You are all making me hungry!
I love to get up early and take my coffee and sit on the overlook deck to watch the seals, porpoises and the fishermen checking their traps from Megunticuck Campground in Camden Hills,Maine. Once the family wakes up, it time to make pancakes for the grandson!
Wherever we camp, I always get up early and sit where I can watch the wildlife as I have my morning coffee.

I can't wait to be in the camper next week and perking my coffee! No buns, though, I'm limiting my carb intake.

Whats a Quahog doing in Texas?

Now you can get one of these, haul the horses, not get rained on, no shoveling, and not smell like em`! For only a small fee of course.

Hey, I had to come here for great BBQ, TexMex, warmer winters, less taxes, and a better job. That was 30 years ago. I guess you could say I am a transplanted clam.

Wyotraveler, I certainly can relate to your horse trailer beginnings in camping. We started out with a 13-foot box on wheels (13 feet counting the hitch !) and even had a portable chemical potty, as there was none built in. The DW and myself, plus a 5-year old daughter hardly had room enough to turn around, but it was a great experience none the less, and we have never doubted our decision to keep upgrading as $$ would allow.

We also wish everyone a Happy New Year, and keep on campin' !

I agree with one and all....every day spent in our camper is a great day. Something about being in the campground, the smell of an early morning fire, coffee perking, and bacon sizzling with sound of hushed voices as people start to rise, just brings me back to happy days with my family camping in vermont as a youngster...Now I'm so fortunate I get to share that with my own kids..Camping is the one place Im the happiest.
Happy new year to all!

I know you were talking of the perfect morning, humor me if you will, why I tell you about our final weekend of this year. Was going to be the last weekend of of October at the KOA about an hour from home. They always have a few "halloween" weekends and we try to take advantage as my wife runs a youth center and is always working halloween. So when we camp she is able to trick or treat with our young twins. This weekend was planned well in advance and when we heard there might be a chance of snow, that did not detur us. We arrived, CG was packed on Friday evening, by 2pm saturday we were one of about 25 familes still there. It snowed and it snowed. Got about 13 inches in the capground. It was so peaceful standing by the fire as the snow fell all around. I love a to enjoy a cigar and a ****tail while sitting by the fire, and this nite as the snow piled up it was gorgeous. when it got to much to stay outside, our camper was warm and inviting, and watching the snow fall outside was amazing.
Most people thought we were crazy, but we all just loved it. (not too much fun trying to pack up and get out the following day, trees were bent over, had to leave the camper till the next weekend...but so worth it)
