some others and myself are planning a camping trip/meet n greet...and chances are,it'll be next month.and it'll be from nov 2nd to nov 5th for me.that is,if those plans work out when it comes them or not.and yes,all of this is still in the planning stages.my mom dont have any doctor appt's at that time.so i need to call my sister,to see if she can stay here.or if my mom can stay there while im not here.other then that.the planing should go good..the link below is the campground in which i'll be staying at..

we have a smaller vehicle now..so im limited to what i can take.but yet,taking extra gear is a good idea.and the only way i see me doing that..is if i can get my hands onto a luggage carrier that'll work with the luggage rack between now and the camping trip..

I just bought a new tent and inflatable matteress. I have 6 days off work starting today and was planning to go camping on a great creek not far from my house. I just found out that we're having the last (hopefully) cold snap this week. Darn it. It's going to dip just below freezing, which is below my comfort zone. Yes I could survive it, but camping is a lot more fun when the weather is nice. The new area I planted for a second vegetable garden has a whole lot of nice young and tender shoots sprouting up right now, dammit. Oh well, when you plant early you have to know you're taking a risk. One thing about camping in the south, it gets hot and sticky fast, so there's a short window in spring and fall to be comfortable. I'll make it soon, just not this time.
