Who got to spend Labor Day camping?

Where you lucky enough to spend the long weekend camping? We didn't get to go because one of my son-in-laws was leaving for Afghanistan today.

We had relatives in from Ohio so we missed the camping fun for the first time in a few years.

Camped in the driveway since we just got the new trailer on Thursday. Still had a blast! Taking it out for real next weekend for the Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix.

We did. Probably the last trip of the year :-( now I am thinking trailer cover and winterizing. Oh well just 10 months of winter to look forward to and then camping again. I really need to move somewhere I can camp more months out of he year.

We did! A group of 4 TT's went to Cowan Lake S.P. in Wilmington, OH for the weekend. Surprisingly, the rain left us alone until this morning (Labor Day) as we were packing up. We live about 70 miles from this gem. I don't believe there is a bad site and all very spacious.

Your camping season might be shorter jayco 228 but i bet you make up for it in scenery. Your not far from the rockies. We took a ten day trip there years ago. Rented a car from Calgary and dropped it off in Edmonton. We drove through the rockies banff, jasper, lake louise (god's country). My seasons longer but i have go a few hours for any scenery (flat).

I made it out with two of the DDs. We went to Taylor Pond Campground in the Adirondacks. What a great state park. Only 25 sites and a great lake. No electric, etc which I prefer. Solar panels kept the battery up to snuff. Best of all the girls learned to bait their own hooks and take the fish off! Only bad moment was when the 7yo got a leech on her hand. I thought she was being eaten by a bear based on her screams

We did, not in our own camper but we were in the cape. 2 more trips for us. Vermont in a couple weeks, then the Cape for Columbus day weekend. Then winterize for our 1st time.
