Well this summer, I guess I hit a sign of getting older. We bought a camper. Now it's not anything huge or extra fancy, however it is a few steps up from the tent we portage into the Boundary Waters.
So with this newly aquired toy we are looking at extending our normal camping season. We picked it up in mid-summer and with a busy schedule have only had it out 3 times. But now we are planning on getting it on the road at least a couple more times in October. We have a trip planned to the Duluth area, and might head out for the Tower area later in the month. Sleeping up off the ground with a furnace running makes it real easy to extend the season. And Fall is both my wife and I's favorite time of year to be out. I'm looking forward to some crisp mornings, some great fall color. biking and geocaching with the camper serving as home base.
And we may have a few tenting weather days left as well, predictions are for a warmer than normal October! See you out there!
