    Just found out that 3 of us will all be at the same campground that weekend. Who else is braving the crowds for one more trip before school starts and the weather turns?

    I am probably camping at the summer camp I grew up at....not with the popup though - probably in my camping hammock way back in the woods, where I lived for the summer (usually in a tent).

    We are going to a State Rec Area close to home (Proud Lake). Not the most exciting or picturesque place in MI, but just a nice place to get away for a few days.

    Yep. Going to be boondocking in the Vedauwoo area of the Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming. Going up the Wednesday before so hope to get a good secluded spot. We are usually out for the holiday weekends, so just go in with the right attitude and keep reminding ourselves it's better then being in town.

    I learned my lesson years ago -- I never camp on holidays.

    Heading to Lake Cumberland, KY for some trout fishing. I've camped on the big holiday weekends all my life and never have any problems. Guess I'm not easily annoyed [;)]

    Camping with a group of 5 others about 30 min from home. Bound to be full, but campgrounds have been full all summer, so no big deal. And welike to tak advantage of the extra day off work and school.

    Labor Day begins our 2-week long trip. We'll be at North Rim of Grand Canyon, it was fine for Memorial Day a couple of years ago, so we assume it will be so for Labor Day. (It isn't exactly close to any large population centers.) We'll head out to Jacob Lake for the Rally potluck there on Saturday.
    [There certainly are campgrounds that we would not attempt to spend a holiday weekend in, but we're learning locations that work for us on holidays.]

    We're towing from the Phila area to the far NW corner of Connecticut for 4 days of vintage race cars at
    Lime Rock Park. It is always a spectacular event. You're invited, too!
