when will yall be getting your camping stuff out and ready?
We never pack ours up! We still be camping on tuesday nights. We fish and camp all year long. No fair weather fish and campers here!!!!:smile2:
I just came in from camp...2 nights, 3 hogs.:smile2:
Probably around april around here. Thats early. Most of the roads in the forest will still be snowed in but the lower elevations should be open.
We usually have our first trip of the year in late March/early April. I've already told Bo that I want to spend the weekend of our anniversary camping. That's almost the end of April so it should be good. Now if I can get my sister to take care of my Mom that weekend, we'll have a good time.
We got a new tent late last summer, and when Mom got sick, we never had the chance to try it out. It's a Bass Pro 4 room tent. Room for the whole family plus the dog. Can't wait!!!:roll_eyes::smile2:
Fired up the ole camp stove Sunday and cleaned a bucket full of lead. I'll usually start around turkey season and after that fish camp most weekends. If it gets real hot i go to motels or just drive back n forth.Can't sleep and sweat.:embarassed:
Was there last week myself, other than extra mouse bait in the fall that about all to it, LOL..... John... you don't have a "hillbilly" a/c unit???? 48 q cooler, with a block of dry-ice and a small 12v fan on low, will cool of a tent or cabin nicely :wink:
Dry ice, good idea. I carry a fan. We sleep under a fan year round.:wink:
Yes sir, (of course it helps to be able to get the ice around close) any way we took one end and drill several 1/4" holes and the other end I put a 4" hole and mounted a little slow 12v fan there. It pulls the air across real slow, but sure will change the temp by several degree, and yes sometimes there may be a slight "fog" on the floor but thats just extra :wink:
I tried that hillbilly ac. I was a little scared of all the fog that was in the tent from the gas coming off the dry ice. oooh: but it did work
I seen something on TV last year about these campgrounds in FL with electric. I guess some folks were setting a window air unit on a milk crate and with a little duck tape,,, they had air conditioned tents.. Makes sence too as these newer tents don't cost so much that a person could cut a hole in one and not feel too guilty..
The show and the campgrounds were griping about the electric usage by all those air conditioners running.
Hey one of those 100 dollar window ones, they have on sale, would cool a tent pretty good.
im gonna try that also thks oh no
I never pack my camping stuff. I camp year round here.
I camp any chance I get all year round
I've camped at least once a month for the last 14 months or so - I'm an adult leader with my son's Boy Scout troop and we camp every month, rain, shine, snow or ice...
Just finished de winterizing today. I Ready to go.
I used to winter camp quite a bit, and would head out to Colorado with snowshoes and spend 4-5 nights in the mountains at a time. You can keep warm in a sleeping bag, I camped as cold as 27 degrees below, but the long nights get to be a real bummer. Mostly now I stick to March through October.
We will probably set up the tent and air it out and seal the seams again within the next week or so since DeGray Ark. gathering is just around the corner. Most times we start prep mid March to mid April.
