New campground found!

5 posts in this topic

My wife was lamenting about how everyone was camping in the parks this weekend and how we weren't. shocked

We have been looking at used campers because the prices are good right now. I'm not really the "camper" type-unless it's in a tent and on the ground.

I told the wife that there was a huge sandbar adjoining our property that would be perfect for camping,so we checked it out today.

[All taken with a Canon point and shoot]

Yep,it was big!



She had to take inventory crazy


The kids wouldn't leave,I had to carry out a 20lb. bag of clamshells.


I think this is a soybean? Maybe a goose [PoorWordUsage] it out?


Instead of being crowded at a park,I'd much rather pitch a tent out there,get a huge fire going,and throw out the lines for catfish when the sun goes down and listen to the woods.

The girls' friends and their folks all do the r/v park camping,but I would rather take them out here. Hey,maybe their friends might like this kind of camping better once they try it?

Seriously,does anybody still do this kinda thing?

Very inviting pictures you have there.

I'm with you on the hole pitching a tent in that kind of setting.

I usually get out on the St.Croix 2 or 3 times a year on spots such as those but this year has been a bust with the boat down and all.

Oh the memories of waking to a rising river or a fog layer 15 ft off the water and the morning sun sneaking its rays between the fog and water bouncing off the cliffs and shining back on the water. Reminder to self bring extra batteries for camera.

Thanks for the photo's, now I am going to really pester the guy working on my boat motor.

So, after the inventory does wife look interested? Looks like an awsome local.

That's a great looking nighttime cat shore fishing spot all right, MM. Brings me back to the days . . . smile

    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?
