    I was convinced that our final trip of the year was over before it started. Forecast says 48/36,showers & breezy for weekend & I knew DW wasn't in for this. I had resigned myself to doing winter prep & saying goodbye until April. DD #1(12) was visibly upset when I broke the news @ dinner tonite. DD #2(8) said nothing. That is an indication she's pissed. DD#1 asks me later "why are we not camping?" I explained the forecast & she comes back with-"Dad we have a camper,rain gear & heat.". DD#2 says "we just split & loaded 2 bins of wood." Well,I can't argue with any of that.

    Sooo......DW gets a weekend alone to scrapbook & DD's & I are going camping. I offered up ipods & dvds just in case,they chose bikes & fishing gear. As much as we (well I) think we fail at this parenting thing,camping works.

    Congrats on having two great kids. It's good to hear that technology hasn't ruined everything.

    We've camped the last 4 or 5 years over New Years on Maryland's Elk Neck penisula. 48/36 is downright toasty! Bring warm sleeping bags and clothing and you'll have blast.

    Good for you dad. [8D]

    Just make sure your propane tanks are full, turn on the heater, and have fun. If it rains, that's a great time for some board games and hot chocolate inside the pup.

    Snow in the forecast now for Sunday AM. They are even more excited! Bikes have been replaced by the dvd player. I'm ok with that with the forecast. 3rd bin of firewood has been added. Updates & pics to come Monday.

    "Updates & pics to come Monday."

    I can't wait for the updates. Why cancel the bikes? Dress warm and let 'em play!

    Have a GREAAAT time !
