I'm at Shabbona SP in Illinois, just me and the kids. The wife had to work. I'm not sure which one of us is getting the vacation...

We're at Columbia Hills State Park near Dallesport, WA - right on the north bank of the Columbia river. Ended up getting here about 2 hours late due to a semi that got stuck under an overpass and caused some lengthy backups on the interstate. Thankfully the GPS re-routed us or it would have been worse. Ironically we got stuck in another backup about 3 years ago due to the same problem at the same overpass......

Headed to Big Lake, AZ this Sunday. Never been there but friends tell us it's real nice and good fishing too! It's only about 3 hours from our place so an easy pull, up only one mountain road.

We are in Saltwater Farm RV Park, Thomaston, ME. It's 20 to 50 F degrees cooler "real feel" than home. First extended stay and trip. Directions from Kim Gass saved the day as has tips on hitch and trailering from Forum members.

Just got back from Riverbend in Pigeon Forge, was a little tight, wifi was terrible, but did manage to see 4 bears. Not at the campground on hikes.

We stayed at Nottingham Campground east of Mt. Hood this weekend. I would keep it a secret if I could, but that ship has sailed. Forest Service claims "Usage: Light" on their web site, but that's not true at all. Aside from Sunday night through Tuesday, it is 100% capacity throughout the summer.

This is why:

East fork of the Hood River backs most sites in the campground. Kids and dog love playing in the [COLD] water, wife and I love the view and the sound (I was sitting next to the picnic table when I took that photo, and the trailer was 10 or 15 feet behind me, so you really are sleeping right next to the river). Gets a little chilly overnight but the daytime temperatures right now are very pleasant.

Holy cow I guess maybe! No room for picnic table or campfire?

Nice TT and TV by the way.
