Friday, December 14, 2018

The right pop up camper gear will make all of the difference in your camping trips!

Now that we have had a couple of years with Peggy Sue, we have settled into a campsite routine when we are setting up and taking down.  We've gotten much better at this process, and we have also discovered what we cannot live without.  If you are new to pop up camping or if you are getting bogged down in the process, these things could make a difference for you!

3 Blue Ribbon Crock Pot Meals for Cold Weather Camping

Monday, December 10, 2018

"Food is the ingredient that binds us together."
Enjoying meals together at the campground is a treat.  Whether around a picnic table or the campfire, I cherish that time with our family and friends.  However, I don't want to spend all of my time cooking and preparing those meals.  A crock pot is a tool that simplifies meals.  Here are three meals that will keep your crew coming back for more and leave you with more time to enjoy exploring!

Oak Mountain State Park Campground Review

Friday, December 7, 2018

The leaves during late November are spectacular at Oak Mountain State Park.

Preserving parks and open spaces is a winner because it doesn't need to be explained to everyday Americans.
-Frank Luntz 
We camp mostly in state parks.  I love the rustic charm and beauty of state parks.  I think my parents instilled this love on our family vacations out west.  While my family did not camp, both of my parents loved to visit places that showcased God's beauty throughout our country.  My parents also took advantage of local gems like museums and parks in our native state.  We are carrying on this tradition with our family.  Oak Mountain State Park is a short drive from our home, offers a rustic charm and variety of amenities that appeal to our family.

Get Lit with an Electric Charcoal and Fire Starter

Monday, December 3, 2018

"Sometimes a fire built on a hill will bring interested people to your campfire"
-Shannon Adler

Camping, grilling, and campfires are all things that go together.  But, my husband and I have not always been great at lighting charcoal or fires.  I'm not gonna lie, it been a source of frustration for both of us both at home and at the campground.  None of us are born knowing how to build a great campfire or do any of these tasks.  And even if you participated in scouting, sometimes we lose or forget these skills as adults.  Please don't admonish me if you believe that you never lose your skills from scouting days.  We recently changed our fire and charcoal starting skills with an electric starter, and this one tool has made us both feel like a pro!
