When we want to "get away from it all," we take 5-day canoe camping trips. The solitude is amazing. We've done a few trips where we never saw another single person the whole time. Can't really do it if you have young kids. Since the hubs and I don't plan on trying for kids until next year, we've been trying to do as many trips as possible before then. Next week, we'll be up in Maine.


It's not that I'm opposed to camping. It's that I am a human mosquito magnet. And black-fly magnet. And chigger magnet. And I abhor ticks. Okay, maybe I don't do camping.

She is a doll. And so blessed to have you.

How cute are you for pitching a tent in the living room for the Peanut? And then taking her camping by yourself for an entire weekend? We just spent a week at the beach with our 2 y.o. daughter. By the end of the vacation, we were worn out from chasing her around, keeping an eye on her, and making sure she was entertained. And that was with the two of us. I don't think I could have made it solo!

Hey MD, We took our 7 mo old camping over the 4th of July. We used to go a lot before she was born and hope to start going regularly with her. Our "good spot" was taken, but we were able to get our #4 spot up in the N. Georgia mountains.


The Texas Hill Country in the Fall or early Spring is amazing. We hike the rocky riverbeds, walk down into caverns and waterfalls, roast smore's in the perfectly cool weather, bring our telescope to watch the stars, and ride our bikes all over creation. There are so many campgrounds around the Austin/Bastrop area that are fantastic.


Your Peanut is a cutie.

I too love camping. But my family and I are what I like to call "luxury campers". We do it in our RV. Have to. We live in Texas.
Big Bend National Park for primitive camping rocks.
Terlingua Ranch (near Big Bend) is great for RVers.


P.S. forgot to mention Canyon of the Eagles in Burnet Texas.
Beautiful place with accomodations for everyone.


I recall taking my 3 sons camping ONCE during their childhood. It rained the entire time and when they got all their clothes wet or dirty ,they resorted to wearing mine. too bad I didn't think of wearing only dresses.

Just recently my friend and I went camping in a yurt at Lake Degray State Park in Arkansas. It was great fun for two middle aged women. The link below has the story and pictures. A wonderful little place.Except for the fact that I was scared of murderers ,snakes and knew nothing about camping:)

I can't believe no one has posted about these campgrounds yet! I grew up going on road trips with my sister, cousins and grandfather in his winnebago staying at KOAs in upstate and central NY. And now, having 2 daughters (3 & 4 mos), my husband and I have a travel trailer of our own and dedicate Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends to camping at a KOA outside Pittsburgh to meet up with his sister and her family from Virginia. It's an awesome place when you have kids!

Love your blog. Haven't visited in awhile and this is my first posting. I enjoy your entries about your Korean upbringing since they often parallel my half-Vietnamese upbringing.

I know this is an old post, but I just discovered your blog, and was going through all the archives. Love it!
So, my husband and I really wanted to "experience" Hawaii, so we decided to spend ten weeks biking & camping on the Big Island. I had gone on a few camping trips to Maine growing up, but this was a real adventure!
The very first night we flew in, he went out on his bike to find food, and I got to work on starting a fire.... 35 minutes later, I was a sweaty, frustrated mess!! By the end of our trip, I could cook a gourmet three course meal over a fire. The Big Island was so beautiful, and the diversity of the Island (Hilo side vs. Kona side) is amazing!
I now love camping, and am happy to sleep under the stars, in a hammock, in a tent, anything! The only thing I can't do is winter camping!! Too cold!

Metrodad: first time on your blog, live in Westchester County, looking for a campsite for the Columbus Day weekend: please do tell where you went, please.....


Dear Metrodad,

I'd definitely recommend you for summer time, some fantastic camping sites in Spain all the way down the Mediterranean Coast.
On the other hand, I would recomend you a nice stay up to Madrid mountains in winter to forget about this sunny idea of Spain.
Your little daughter looks so cute and so nice.

I have been revising Bosslady post from 2006: fan tas tic ;)

Take care!




Stuffing something in your mouth and trying to get a good night's sleep just doesnt make sense. I tried these natural exercises and cured my snoring in under 2 weeks

Why other writers can't seem to put their thoughts into clear words the way you do is beyond me. I truly appreciate your valuable information.

Check out this internet site

I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and amusing, and let me
tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something
that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something regarding
