Last Minute Camping
So last Thursday my wife says "let's go camping, i'm off tomorrow". Cool! The lakes are full, weather is low 90's, I'm in! So i check the online reservations and there's nothing available, all booked. So she says "Let's try shore camping", whoa! That's totally not like her, she is a trooper but primitive shore camping? So off we went and found a cool spot surrounded by water on three sides, large cove on one side and small quiet cove on the other. Spent three days on the lake, one of the best times we've had camping, except maybe when the racoons attacked as she puts it, but that's another story!

Wow! Great pics. Looks like you had quite an adventure. I'd definitely want the dogs there too in the primitive spot. No telling what's out there.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

Yeah Dachshunds look pretty harmless but they are actually quite the agressive protectors and hunters. Darn near had goose dinner one night! LOL! The coyotes were around the first night but the dogs being around kept them away imo.2007 Mobius LSV

Looks fun Razz- We used to do a lot of beach camping up here on the Columbia out on an island as the campgrounds are booked solid all summer long by March it seems. Got some brave raccoons as well - one time they made off with about 5lb of dogfood overnight. Couldn't get the tupperware tub open so they took the whole thing!At the time it seemed like a good idea...

That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm not a dog guy but I have heard they are great protectors. All of them routinely bark at me.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

We started the summer off with a few beach tent camps, hopefully when the time comes we will wrap it up that way as well, our little one loved it!06 Supra 24 Gravity Games

awesome! We have some places that are only boat in camping around but with 3 little ones it's pretty much only places that we can set our 26 footer for a few years.
Would love to do that if it were only me and my wife (and a sidearm of course)
