Gone Camping

I'm working until 2 today and then we are heading to the camp site.  It's about 2 hours northwest of here, on the Delaware River.  We love it.  However, it's a lot of work to pack everything, set up, etc.  This time we are leaving earlier than usual so it should be a little bit easier.  Normally we don't leave until 5 or 6 pm and by the time we get there, it's dark - lol.

This time, there's going to be 9 of us, 10 including Murphy - myself, Saro, his 2 daughters, his Mom, his sister and her husband and his parents.  It should be fun.  Tomorrow we will go canoeing and I will most likely fall out of the canoe (happens every year).

We will pack some snacks and beer for the trip down the river.  I'm thinking the river will be high due to all the rain we've had.  The higher, the better.  Then the boat doesn't get stuck on rocks and when the water is flowing more rapidly, that means it's more clean!

We will come home Sunday afternoon and then I'm off Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday :)  We might do a day trip to the beach but not sure yet - nothing major planned but it'll be nice to sleep in and relax.

Do you like to camp?  Have you ever been?


  1. I am a rafter over camper! I grew up country (read Deliverance) and prefer to day trip/hotel skiing, rafting and hiking trips.

    Hope you have a great time! ...and be safe!

    1. Thanks! We like this campground as it has bathrooms, showers, and a small store if you need ice. So it's not really roughing it. We had fun kayaking!
