On February 27th we ventured out to do a little camping, the first time for 2016. It was going to be a cold night but we were sure we could handle it! We got all our things loaded up and headed out.
This would be Isaac's first camping trip ever and he sure was a trooper being 3 yrs old. He said he is a "Mountain man". Isaac is fond of Grizzly Adam's.
We got our jeep, trailer and Honda Recon and set out for a night in the woods.
Terry and I picked out a site and we started to clean up. A ton of brier bushes, roots, rocks etc. We spent nearly 3 hours cleaning the site and preparing it and it was worth it. It will be nice for the next group to go in and set up camp. I just hope whoever uses it, cleans up. We picked up so much trash in the woods from what people left behind previously. It is so un-called for. We will always leave a place better than it was, when we got there. The earth deserves people to take care of it. I believe as my ancestors, treat it right! Please take your garbage with you.
We had fun riding some trails looking for rocks for our fire pit. Isaac enjoyed gathering dead sticks for our fire. We were ready to stay for the night.
The hours passed and I went to see if I could get a shot of the sunset. Got a few pretty shots, including our smoke from our camp fire.
Isaac wore out early. He did do a lot of work and was active. The only thing is, I didn't get to enjoy the night fire and stars as much as I would have loved to. Little man was ready to go in the tent but not alone. :) His first time so he wanted to make sure mom was beside him in the great outdoors.
During the night it got cold and uncomfortable fast ( I think I was feeling my age on that cold ground). I think we could have called it a night, but us three toughed it out and made it to morning. The low probably got close to the 30 range.
We got the fire kindling again and I got some eggs, turkey and cheese cooked on some bagels. I really enjoyed a hot cup of coffee!
I can't wait till the next camping trip and hopefully it can be for more than one night!
