    camp put away!

    No idea which section to post this in.... With winter moving in here and we LOVE fall camping,, but we finally decided that the camper needs to get moved into storage. As seen here yesterday. [:D] Even the drive there was kinda tough going.

    Courtney Lake NFS campground

    Here is pics from Courtney Lake NFS campground in the western UP of MI. What glorious fall weather to be camping in. It was 28 or so in the morning hours but quite nice over the day. 1st thing was to blow the site off!

    Courtney Lake camping

    Over the past few days we stayed and helped to clear some sites at a NFS campground in the Ottawa NF. This is in the western UP of Michigan. Finding wood IS NOT a problem here. Should get rid of some. Kind of a view of the lake? More to follow.

    Well folks, I found an old fire poker at work I liked but if didn't have any kind of hook on it. I added one and tried it over the weekend for the first time and LOVED it! [:D] What do you think?

    dog pics while at Jordan MN.

    My father raised, trained and sold border collies to ranchers for many years. Here is a few pics taken at Jordan MN where we'd meet them to camp with at the fair grounds since they trailed dogs there. (not all the pics are my dad)

    This past weekend we made it to Lake Ste Kathryn for our 1st outing of the year! Ask if you'd like more details of this wonderful CG in the western UP of MI. We clear a nice little trail that goes around some marshes there, ak the trumpeters you see below. There was only one other camp site used...

    dark one on road side

    Here is one we spied this spring on the road side you folks might consider. [LOL] It may have been parked there all winter at a roadside state parking area. It has rubber roofing installed over it. Maybe you are looking for a cheap fixer upper? :grin: Ya, it was open.

    New puppy and mutts on the trail pics

    Yes, the new puppy is getting trained. As is normal, she is quite fearful of water. Than wally shows her how its done and promptly come back. Then a certain puppy gets pushed in! And eveyone crosses and crosses again. No one drowns!

    old girl is no longer

    We have posted many, many photos of us camping and in general with our mutts out and about. Yesterday, sad to say, we had to put our old girl down after 14+ years with us camping, hiking, MB bike rides and pretty much everything we do, we do with our dogs. Her arthritis had got so bad, she...

    Good used camper spied!

    As seen in Ely Mn last week. Lightly used and only needs a good washing. Roof does not leak! I wonder what the water pipes up the one side do? (this is a joke, its not posted for sale and even if it was, I would not recommend its purchase)

    If anyone has any questions or comments about camp or trail first-aid, lets see them here! We've been through the hospitals first-aid lecture that we felt was rather poor. Also did the SOLO one which is for back country people and loved it! Lots and lots or practical info.

    Ice cooler usage 101

    Thought maybe we should start a thread centered around the use of ice coolers. You know, the how, when and whats. For some history, in the 90's we got one of the earlier versions of these 12 volt coolers and loved the thing. Used it for years and eventually sold it. Later got another and...
