We had planned to go to Haines, Alaska but weather forecast talked us out of it. Five hours there and five hours back just ain't worth sitting in the rain and for 3 days!

Will get some projects done around home instead.

Our Labor Day plans do include camping, just not this weekend. We're headed out to camp Monday morning hopefully arriving just after most other weekenders are returning home.

WOW!! Sounnds Scary!!!

This year, I'll be coddling my 9 mos pregnant wife, and trying not to put an ice pick through my ear while getting some shopping in for baby supplies! We'll see how that goes after our last baby shower, which is this weekend too!
Kinda puts the real meaning to "Labor Day"????

Passed several rigs on the way home from the office. I have to admit my eyes were a little green. Decided not to go since the kids started school last week, but I wish I was heading off. Something tells me I'll be visiting camp driveway this weekend.

We are in prep mode for getting ready for our maiden voyage trip in the TT. We have a list of things to get and do still so that will be our fun holiday weekend. I'm ok with it though, as others have said I'm not sure holiday weekends of packed CG is really our cup of tea

Sad thing is many folks stop camping and winterize after Labor Day. The best camping of the year will just be starting then IMO. FALL!

Yeah! Go Fall. IMHO best time of the camping year.

I have never thought it through, I just know it is.

We are definitely going camping! We just picked up our new Greyhawk 31FK on Tuesday and we are not going to sit home just because it is Labor Day. :-) We did select the small Medoc Mountain State Park in Hollister, NC because it is close and has only about 30-odd campsites. Shouldn't be too crowded.

+1!!! After Labor Day is the best time to camp in Texas, esp after the weather breaks and things cool down a little!
