This place is QUIET!!!

Post  merrykalia on Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:52 pm

Is anyone still camping for the season or have we all packed it in for the year?

afob is the only one that has put any pics or anything on for a while. His Halloween camping pics were great, but what about everybody else.

Since our truck is dead, we don't have any way to move our TT, so we are stuck at the house.

I have my social security disability hearing on November 2 (would welcome prayers in that area), so until that is done and we get a little more $$$ coming in, I think our season is at an end.

Well, I have planned on camping after Thanksgiving at Pine Mtn. Kinda like the end of the season, but my plans are not definite.

I'm doing a night here and there in Camp Driveway. We drove up to Grayson Highlands (Near Damascus VA) last Saturday. What a great campground. It was too cool and breezy to hike up to where the wild ponies wer grazing. The colors were beautiful. I'm definately gong back up there in the summer. I want to bike the Virginia Creeper trail, check out the Mount Rogers Nat'l Rec. Area (Next to Grayson Highlands) and see those ponies.

Tomorrow (Friday/Sat) we are taking our American Heritage Girls troop tent camping for one night. I had to go get my kids new sleeping bags. Found two good ones on sale for $20 each at K-mart. They are Swiss Gear Mummy bags rated to 0-degrees and have a 10 year warranty. I got in one, and it was a little smaller in the chest/arm area than I'm comfortable with. I'll stick with my "big and tall" rectangle bag. It's gonna be cold Friday night. (They wouldn't let me bring Miss Danger even though I'll be in my own tent by myself.) We have about 20 or so girls going. We are zip lining and rock climbing.

If hearing goes well, a truck is quickly into our future, so we may be able to go to Pine Mtn for Thanksgiving. If not, we will definitely do a weekend there before Christmas so we can see all the lights and do Dollywood since we have passes.

One more trip the first weekend of November for us. Still playing with the idea of camping for Thanksgiving but the freezing temps are making me nervous.

I winterized last year in the dark because I had put it off until just before a deep freeze. NOT fun messing around in the dark on a breezy cold evening with wet hands.

Come on and join us at Pine Mtn. They have a indoor pool, just love to say I went swimming after Thanksgiving. Winterizing doesn't take me more than 1hr to do.

Chuck, if we go to Pine Mtn, they do have cabins for rent - maybe the wife would agree to stay in one of the cabins and you could hang with us.


afob - we usually winterize when we are packing up at Pine Mtn, so it's all done when we get home on Sunday afternoon. Park it and take in our clothes and whatever else we have in there that HAS to come in and we are done for the season.

Just got back from Cherokee NC ( Indian Creek Campground ) Small but very nice, clean and very friendly. Nights were alittl on the cool side and made you want to stay around the fire. With the creek right behind you , it made for a great nights sleep. We did some fishing and sight seeing. Saw lots of turkey and elk. Came back with a nice lot of trout as well. I am done for the year as hunting season has came in.

I'm for another winter trip to Pine Mountain. Let's pick a date to shoot for. We also want to use those Dollywood passes at least one more time. I probably won't hook my water back up till spring. I've got everything dry and don't want to fool with that again. I'll use jugs of water and refill them if needed. My drain just goes out through the wall to a bucket, so no worries there.

Tim, the zipline at dollywood costs a lot of money. The zipline at the camp I went to was part of the package we bought.

Speaking of winterizing, check your tires. Mine looked OK, but were down by 15 PSI from where they should have been.

Let me get through next Wednesday and I will let you know about a date.

We could do Thanksgiving week, but we have about decided to take the kids to DC for a sight seeing trip. We can get a room in Arlington, (Friends and Family rate on my niece, who works for Holiday Inn) a block from the metro for $59/night (vs. $96)with a fridge and microwave in the room. Pretty much all the sight seeing is free, so just out food and gas. (That's almost cheaper than Pine Mountain!!)

Elora has been studying about the capital and some of the monuments, so we figured this would be a good time to take her.

Until Wed., everything is up in the air. Afterwards, I may be able to make some decisions.

DC sounds like a good trip. I'm going to Inianapolis area in December and I may take my kids up there with me, my wife too, since I won't be camping.

Well were done camping for the season. Our motorhome is already winterized and in storage. Which is ok anyway because I am working 6 days a week right niece anyway I am only off on thursdays at least until the end of march. Then I get back off in my weekends. We are, however, going to go to dollywood at least one more time before our passes expire probably go dec 1st to see the christmas stuff.

We will be bringing the rv home the first weekend of april. Probably take her to cove lake for her maiden voyage. Then will be out to Cosby for the volunteer meet, if its happening this year. Then were heading to pirateland in myrtle beach may 17-20. Then to disney fort wilderness july 22-29. It is untelling where all will go in between.
