Before we took the leap into full-time travel we traveled extensively, including cross-country journeys of 2-3 months and many long weekends each year. Many of our friends also love to camp, and we have fond memories of countless camping trips we’ve shared over the years.
A fall camping trip is one of our traditions. Because we’re back in our hometown of Ashland for several months, we were delighted to have the opportunity to go camping with our long-time friends. In mid-October, 15 of us gathered at Rocky Point on Upper Klamath Lake for a long weekend. (Not all members of our camping tribe were able to come, but it was a great turnout!)
Most of us started out our camping adventures in tents, and little by little over the years, we’ve graduated to something that gets us up off the ground and warm. On this chilly fall weekend, we took over the rustic Rocky Point Resort in our vintage Airstreams, a ham can, a turquoise Shasta with wings, a retro Lazy Daze, a small and smaller Big Foot, and a 40-foot Monaco motorhome.
We kayaked, played music around a roaring campfire, told stories, and had a wonderful time reconnecting with friends. We’re going to miss them, a lot. I wish we could talk everyone into caravanning across the country. :-)
