Months ago we planned a string of March and April campouts -- eager for the camping season to be in full swing.
We arrived Thursday early afternoon and found the owner Derk running around on his garden gator tending to all the business that it takes to open a campground and canoe livery for the season. Alan was already set up, and Georgia and Rick and Suzie and John came soon enough. Other than that, we had the whole place to ourselves and happily settled in to enjoy the serene surroundings. Rick and Georgia captured the site on one side of a shelter house, and Alan claimed the other side. This resulted in being able to daisy chain us all up to 110 electricity to keep the batteries topped of -- thus we were glamping primitive!
Friday there was a brief trip in to Lebanon for lunch and ice cream, but mostly a lot of campsite sitting and in-activity . . . except for Georgia. She kept to her usual gung-ho schedule of early morning hike, followed by late morning bike, and afternoon kayak (in her new inflatable two-seater); she ended up with some beautiful pictures of wildflowers and birds!
It all wrapped up on Easter Sunday morning by 9:00. Next weekend we are gathering again at Little Farm on the River, in Rising Sun, Indiana.
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
