I'm still around, just don't check in too much. I went on one camping trip this year and left early because of an ineffectual camp host that let people yell at the top of their lungs all night and cut down trees. I also couldn't get the damn wood to light again. I know, I know, I need to get a fireplace log, but I haven't yet. I HAVE gotten a new tent, though. This one for $80. It's nice, but I'm confused on how the full rainfly works. When I keep both of the sides extended and staked in rain, getting out of the tent is a little awkward....to say the least. BUT, it's so roomy!!

I'm currently unemployed, so I don't know if I can afford to go camping right now, but I might see if I can scrounge up some extra money to go during the week. It's cheaper then, too.

Isn't camping sort of what broke homeless folks do all the time?

She doesn't camp in the woods, not the real woods.

She stays to the campgrounds, where it costs money.

Ain't too many homeless folks paying for a piece o' ground for the night, and buying firewood.

EXACTLY! Potty required. I actually need to check out hipcamp.com to see if there's anything cheaper. I don't remember the sites being so expensive last time, but I was working then, so it was kind of like "meh"

Check out Corps of Engineers campsites. They often have a dry camp area with composting toilets and central water supply for filling water jugs to take to camp. Same with some of the national forests. They are usually free.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I couldn't find any free sites for either of them.

Most national forests have free backcountry camping. You just find a clear spot in the woods and set up camp. Gotta check the rules for each forest though, because there can be restrictions in certain areas. Above a certain elevation, near a reservoir, etc.

I'M GOING CAMPING THIS WEEKEND!!

Since it's so hot here, I'm going to try to find food to eat that I can heat on my little stove or no heat at all. Shouldn't be too hard.

I'M SO EXCITED.

Awesome.

I've planned a half day canoe trip followed by camping along the river in two weeks for the Troop. Looking forward to it.

Heading back out to the woods again in a couple weeks. Last time, it was pretty relaxing except for the asshats that showed up for the last night blasting their bluetooth music. I told them to shut it down because camp hosts do fuck all. It would have been better if I was staying Sat-Mon, but since I was new to my job, I went Fri-Sun. They totally ruined my last day. My only happiness is that they didn't put rainflys on their tents and it rained. Yea, I'm an ass.

I successfully got through that weekend without cooking a single morsel - good thing since the hosts never greeted me to sell me wood. This time, I'll have to check the weather. It's still in the mid-eighties during the day here, but I'll be 2ish hours west in the mountains, so it might be nice and chilly. Good thing I JUST finished taking all the camping stuff out of my car this weekend (facepalm)
