    58 degrees right now in Waupaca, WI. Sunday evening, most have left, no more horn chirps of paranoia, and a little drizzle to keep gaulkers (gawkers??) away and enhance the fire.... Lexie taking a nap after a hike, and WDUX playing on the "jukebox".... life doesn't get much better! [:)C][DOG]

    Still about 100 deg here, with the heat index in the 103 + to darn hot to do much of anything also dry and no rain in sight for awhile. Yesterday I saw 2 buzzards flying backwards and had on goggles to keep the sand out of their eyes.
    I am glad y'all are getting some decent weather for camping

    Sounds like a good trip to me. Just got back from a trip myself. Sadly a weekend is just never long enough.

    I can't imagine 103! In September!! Rain has stopped, fire and AM 800 still going... feasting on Campbells chili and grilled hot dogs... I feel like Kevin Costner's dad... "Is this heaven?"

    It isn't! I took an extra day... The only thing I miss about working for someone else is paid vacation!! I will do one more extended stay here towards the end of October, then nothing until May....

    Nice setup, really dig that color too!

    PS - I got a thing for those Coleman coolers. We use them as dry storage now [:D]

    I'll trade. We heat water with natural gas. The bill was down 1/3. The water is coming into the house preheated. <GG>

    I have a stainless Coleman that is about 20 years old now (and still going strong) and my "new" green one that is probably 5 years old.

    One of my green ones is older and vintage, maybe 15 years. The other is in the 5 year window.

    I love it when we're the only ones in the campground.

    Only happened one night so far (last fall) where I was truly the only person in the campground. I do love the peace & quiet!

    We still have two of those Coleman coolers. The big red one is 45 years old, the small red one is around 30. They are still serving their purpose.

    Off season camping is so nice & peaceful.
