Yes yes yes, I know it's been a long time since I've blogged. I've been getting repeated requests and inquiries as to our health and our situation. Everything is fine here. We have just been so danged busy all summer that I've never gotten back around to blogging.
I keep thinking about things I want to write about, and I collect photos in to albums of topics I want to write about. But then I've just been getting so dang busy that I never get around to writing them, editing them, or publishing them. I am so sorry!
So this week, while sitting around this campfire, I decided to take a picture and start a blog again. I will go through the next couple weeks doing some Campground Reviews of places we've been this summer. Also I will do some posts on some of our house projects, although those have been winding down lately. Then also some posts on my newest fiber creations, quilts, and other fun stuff.
So, to start with, here we are sitting around this beautiful campfire. What a perfect place to sit and think about camping and give a good Campground Review.
On last Sunday afternoon, the weather was absolutely beautiful. So we decided to load up the camper and hop in and take off to a campground that we drove through last year at this same time. We weren't able to camp there because they were updating all of the electrical services. So we had made a mental note that we always wanted to go back there. It's about 120 miles away, so we figured on a relaxed 2-3 hour trip.
I plugged it into the Microsoft Streets and Trips on my laptop, attached my GPS dongle, and away we went. I like using this large screen rather than just the little screen on the handheld GPS on my phone. But I do double check with my phone in case there's some areas of new road construction, because the Microsoft Streets and Trips is no longer supported, the updates are not always there for the newest roads.
