I just came back from a short 3 night trip at Kiptopeke State Park on the Virginia Eastern shore. It was my first time there. The trip was mainly just to get away for a quick breather. (Helping take care of mom). This trip was kind of last minute so just grabbed what ever I could find. Everything was pretty booked though in all state parks. I just lucked out. Not very many beneficial trees and the awning faced the sun so didn't get much break from it until I rigged up a solar shade. Thank goodness for tarp clips and bungies. Then of course it would rain in the middle of the night just before I had to leave so everything was wet and of all times when I had to pack first thing the AM so I can get on the road. (Promised my boss I was going to work in the afternoon). Stupid promise, but I screwed my vacation days up so had to compromise. I would love to go again and try out the hiking trails but I was so mentally drained I just wanted to do nothing than lounge and relax.
