RE: camping
Now that I have the 4x4 truck I'd like to do more of that. Our Beetles are great for traveling but the ground clearance is atrocious.
A friend texted me early this year with a craigslist deal, a truck he could not afford. Now I have a 4x4 diesel. My 2wd is a great truck but with that heavy engine it could get stuck on an idea Tongue
I think yoga really is the answer here, crawling up off the ground trainingSmile

Maybe that's why I like to sleep on the ground? Since I'm always on my yoga mat, I'm comfortable there Tongue

RE: camping
I reserve these group camps every year. If some of you are local, you'd be welcome. It might be appropriate to have a meetup before committing to a weekend in the woods with total strangers though. Big Grin
It is a really good deal. $50 a night and the space is huge, with room for many RVs and cars. I'd estimate about 3 acres all to ourselves. There are areas that are not accessible with bigger rigs that are ideal for tent camping.
The other one we get is Pine Needle.

It has a challenging driveway, longer trailers may drag bumper (off!) if you're not careful. I bring big boards to bridge the low spot for others.
It has an absolutely idyllic tent spot right on the river, with a firepit.

I think a TTA camping trip would be fun Thumbsup

RE: camping
Yup. Nothing puts the damper on gazing at a beautiful starry sky than some crappy old woo at the wrong moment. THAT wouldn't be happening Tongue

RE: camping

We didn't get a chance to do it this year even though we're back in Scotland because we were without a car for so long. And the last few years we were in Germany without a car either.

If we stay in Scotland then we'll definitely be doing a lot more wild camping. We've seen lots of interesting wild life alone on top of the mountains. Like a pack of wild horses, an owl that constantly flew a few feet above our heads, huge deer that were munching grass around our tents etc
We drove through a bit of the highlands in 2007. I can see how nice that would be Thumbsup

RE: camping
One of my favorite places on earth is just a 45 minute drive plus a 1 hour hike away from my home...

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart
