My best camping 'adventure' is when we take a trip and don't have one.

Mine would be my cross country camping trip in a pop up with 13 & 7 yr girls w/o DH. Had never towed anything and went with only one lesson. DH was supposed to be w/us but was sent overseas for unexpected business trip. He made the return trip as he took the polar flight from Italy to San Fran. Lots of memories and mishaps and fun and GREAT people along the way. Didn't seat the connector to the to the trailer lights somewhere in Nevada. Blew a fuse when the wires were exposed. Stopped at a Shell station and as it was Sunday onLy a teenager on duty. A gentleman from Mexico was visiting and said he could fix it if we had any electrical tape. There was none at the station so the teen drove home to get some from his dad. Leaving the station unattended and unlocked. They fixed the wiring replaced the fuses (which I did have) and would only take a soda as payment. This was in '86. Have many more camping stories, but that is just one example of the great people in this country.

Best were going out drycamping in a pop-up, in the AZ mountains with the kids. We still drycamp in the desert (Winters) and mountains (Summer) with them and the grandkids.

We suffer in a 35' class A now however and one has a toyhauler and the other has a tent.

Wretched excess is just barely enough.

Back when we used to tent camp along the Delaware river. When everything fit in two foot lockers. Little Mazda B2000 with aluminum cap. Everything fit inside including three bikes (no rack) and my son sitting on the homemade padded center console with the stick shifter between his legs. Rented canoes with beer hanging over the side. Lashing the canoes together, (we always had company), while on the river to have lunch and watch the kids swim in the river. Going over Skinner's Falls in a canoe with my son compaining about being left on shore "just in case". Don't bother looking for the falls. The dynamite made it NICE AND SAFE AND BORING.

We always seem to have an adventure some are planned and some are surprises. You have a choice of having frustration or an adventure. I think our favorite is the next one.

A good trip is a trip without an adventure. I spent 24 years in the Army...I don't want any more "adventures."

The Delaware, 3 miles from my home, is, perhaps, my most favorite river.

But then I also like the Au Sable, Betsie, Hudson, Yahara, Wisconsin, Beaver Kill, Black, Snake and Colorado.

Darn, I wish I were young enough to do all of them again.

As for my best camping adventure; every one of them.
