I'm not a phone person, so I don't have any problem leaving it behind. Most of the time when I remember to put the cell into my bag when I go out the door, I forget to turn it on, or huh? you mean those batteries need to be recharged?

We took the laptop with us for Doug's work on one trip (to Maine) last summer and the connectivity was so lousy we gave up on it. We're taking a longer trip this summer and we'll have to take the computer along (darn it anyway), so maybe our escaping the computer has been short-lived. We'll see.

Thumbs up Great thread!

Hi all,
Love to read the responses! Overall, we like camping near water with trees for activities, shade/privacy for the pup and us too. I really like it when we can get a waterfront site as its easier to play with our son cause we don't have to cross a street to get to the water/sand, and if the campground has a nice playground even better! Trails and bike paths make it fun too. Mountains are good ....Course that's the ideal for us at this time.

We surely love meeting people and socializing but that has tended to be a different camping scene altogether from our state/national park routine. Now if there was a campground with waterfront sites, lots of trees-privacy, clean restrooms/showers, playgrounds, full hookups, laundromat, and fun Airstreamers of all ages to visit with aahhhhh that would be sweet.

". . .and have made reservations at that favorite lake for 2 summer weekends. We have not been there in almost 10 years..and do you know what, our daughter, husband and 2 grandsons will join us. The cycle is complete.

This phrase jumped out at me from your post because it so true for us. We began camping in the Gunflint area of northern Minnesota over 20 years ago when our kids were teens. Two of them returned to Grand Marais for honeymoons--scheduled when the family would be there too (can you imagine??) and special summer trips have them joining us with grandkids now. The stories we began in the late '80's are part of the family lore now that even the five year old knows: he asks when we are going again to "Minnewota." We have family camped with all by one daughter in Yellowstone also. Camping as a family grows deep deep roots ~G

Perhaps this responce is to philosophical but here's my thoughts. looking at the history of man there have always been groups of peoples who were nomadic and those who settled in town and villages. I can't help but think some of that same nomadic spirit is still arround in folks today. You can sence it in folks that are full timers or maybe your own emotions if you've ever concidered fulltiming or just thinking about somewhere you would like to go. I was telling a neighbor last fall my "migration. spirit" had kicked in and I was heading south. As to explaining I'm not sure you can. Either you instinctively understand or wouldn't even if someone explained it.-------------------pieman

I love all the responses so far. It seems we all have a lot more in common than just an appreciation for a magnificient icon. You all describe your love of family, friends and travel so well I'm sure you have some favorite pictures you'd like to share.
