I’m back in the saddle after spending 6 days camping at New Hogan Resevoir (it’s about 30 miles East of Lodi to save you the time to Google). At last count, there were about 50 people at the campsite. This is our second year as family campers and I have to say we’ve got the system down pat.
Awesome air mattresses? Check. Earplugs? Check. Big tent? Check. Camp stove? Check. Camping Kitchen? Check.
Wait, you don’t have one? This baby is the must-have for all of you tent campers out there. It’s a table that extends and flips up to hold utensils and block the wind. Mine is extra fancy because it has a sink AND when you close the top you can play backgammon or chess/checkers on the top. I know, we rock!!
We took the boat and logged many hours a day dragging the kids and their friends around the lake our the inner tube. We went through a bottle of spray sunscreen a day, two cases of water and all of the salads I’d pre-made.
We got home yesterday afternoon, all of us exhausted and dirty – what else can you ask for?
This week I’m back to the running and bootcamping. More to follow…
Now go run!
