is about how to make your own little oasis at the campground. Making family trips stylish and comfortable. I encourage you to camp in gourmet comfort even if you have kids. I invite you tell your stories and ask your questions. I will also keep you informed on Northern California events.
Keeping a camping blog during summer is like trying to read on the tread mill. I'm sure it can be done but were so darn busy with camping, gardening, swimming, packing, unpacking that well it's like being on a tread mill.
Lake Tahoe A five day trip feels like your unpacking for longer than the trip. Especially when it's hot outside.

My new coffee pot from REI, excellent! Now I need to put it all back together in the bins, in a neat pile in the garage ready for camp trip number three for the year. That may not happen till just before my next trip in a few weeks.
Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay No need to sort through photos, I lost them all somehow! The Pict's I have here are from some of the 30 people who camped with us.

This will be our longest camp trip yet, it's for five nights. Included in our trip other than the standard camping agenda is site seeing, dinning in local restaurants, shopping, wine tasting and even going to an outdoor concert for my birthday.
Just because were camping or "glamping light" doesn't mean we have to rough it all the way. Sure hiking, biking and roasting marshmallows will be done but the beauty of a five day trip is enjoying more than just dirt and burgers.
Chow for now, with so much more to share when we come home,
Tent size matters and comfort makes you sleep better.
This is really the MOST IMPORTANT matter when it comes to "Camping In Style!" Your only as good as your sleep right? A tiered camper has wimpy hikes, a dull eye for nature and an overall crummy feeling that takes the whoo hooo out of camping. You'll become a real camping grump without good sleep...... “What was I thinking? Camping is saposto be fun? Ugh!”
Last night my daughter and I packed our cloths for our five day camping trip coming up next week. I washed everything is unscented soap and focused on packing old cloths. Adrienne who is five loves this activity. I like packing cloth several days before our trip so I have time to wash anything that needs to be washed and because I know the days leading up to such a big trip will be busy with cooking/freezing food, shopping, planning and pulling it all together.
Here are a few links to help you get started knowing what to pack for a week long trip:
Cloths: I like clean cloths so a long trip means packing more, washing a few things or I check to see if they have a laundry facility. BRING CHANGE if they do. Wash all your cloths in scent free detergent so your not attracting mosquito's.
