    Camping with lightning

    I've asked the question before-just how safe are we in a popup with a thunderstorm? Never had a final answer. With all the trees so close I just hightail it to the TV or bathhouse. I had my friend pose a question one night I really had not considered-"can this things roof fall on me while I'm...

    Slumming it

    We only use ours for sleeping and the fridge for bottled drinks. We are in bear country also. Most of the time we don't even hook up the water. DH HAS to have the air. I prefer the "natural "air and katydids :) Easy come, easy go [:D]

    May 2011 Recipe of the Month

    We do the foil packs at home also when we are especially busy. At camp we like to cook in a tin can with heavy duty foil on top in the fire pit. We used to use coffee cans before plastic or cardboard. Cans are becoming extinct! [:D]

I noticed a mouse had been run over in the campsite while waiting for my husband to back the pup in. We stayed 4 nights and lo and behold we had a mouse on the 3rd night...
