I second this motion. Last year I packed up our AS and my dog and went on a 10 day venture to Bristol Motor Speedway for a race. My dog and the AS were the most popular events at the campground!

PS. The race was awesome!

I like old threads like this...

I marked all of them - except cooking. I BBQ (Grill if you're from the south) but they won't eat anything else I cook.
Our activities really depend on the area we are camping in, and what our time limitations are. Biking, kayaking, hiking and doing nothing are definately "up there" on my list.
I usually take my mandoline to pester the neighbors around the fire.

Now Dave...I am VERY particular when it comes to defining the words of Grilling vs BBQ.

BBQ= LOW heat, SLOW Cooking, and requires smoking

Grilling= High Heat, Fast Cooking, no smoke required

You can smoke on a grill (I have before), but it just aint the same.

Let me know if you have an aversion to pork or not, and you will be in for a treat.

For me there is nothing better than sitting around a nice campfire with a good meal sitting in my lap and a drink in my hand. I guess I checked the hiking to shoot the bull with others while getting exercise to work off the food and drink.

I like to critique the SOB trailers in the campground - that's always fun

I enjoy kibitzing with our usual camping friends one of whom is within an inch of being a hobbit (which is why their purchase of an Airstream will be so fitting as she comes out the door)

Thinking of things I could do to the Flying Cloud and the TV when I "get around to it"

Bobbing around in the lake with friends to cool off from the heat

Making margaritas or just sipping on beer.

Definately socializing with other campers.

Favorite hobby would be trying to keep the batteries charged

Great thread. We love to do lots of outdoor activities with the kids. The boys and I especially love to skip rocks if there is a lake or creek around, we've spent hours skipping rocks and playing along the lake shore or creek side. We love a good round of disc golf, hiking, canoeing and definitely hanging around a good campfire where I normally have a good cigar and an adult beverage. We normally play a board game with the kids every night and the wife and I almost always play a couple rounds of cribbage before hitting the rack. We do not play video games or watch TV when camping if the weather keeps us in it's board/card games and reading. My favorite is still skipping rocks with the kids.

I like to fly fish as well. Our dogs enjoy the water when ever they can find it. It's a lab thing...

Dutch Oven cooking is my passion, so perfecting a "good 'first tme tried that' meal" is always way up on the list.. reading and poking at the campfire. ted

Thumbs up Something's Missing

Now..please understand, Iv'e read this whole thread carefuly. And we have at one time or another enjoyed most of what has already been mentioned. Especially the WINE tasting.
But come on folks, it's hard for me to believe that what sometimes happens
after consuming a good bottle of Whine,(or maybe even not so good) has not even been hinted at on this thread.
After all...EVERYTHING'S BETTER IN AN AIRSTREAM

OKAY, I admit it. We're guilty.

You are right - we sleep in the Airstream. It's great. Morning snoozes, afternoon naps, evening eye-rester's and of course the all nighter - sleeping that is.

Okay, you are right, it gets worse - oh, I am so ashamed that we do this with our camping friends and strangers right next door and sometimes even just outside, but we can't help ourselves - we snack. Cheezies, licorice, cookies, butter tarts, you name it and we do it, as quietly as we can, but sometimes you just have to let a moan slip with delight - oh, we are soooo sinful.

Robert, were you suggesting that there's something else one could do in their trailer?
