Looks fun. I haven't been camping in about 24/25 years now (I was 2 and a half).

Good times!!! Thanks for the rundown of the trip. I went camping last year in the mountains in the middle of winter. It was at a really cool campground. It was really cold, but awesome fun. I am hoping to go camping again at the beach when it gets warmer again (its winter here again now).

Here are some pics of us camping

It was nice, because when we got back to the end of the backpacking trail, it came out next to the Basin Store.
So one of the leaders bought everyone drinks on himself. A cold Dr Pepper is SO GOOD after being out in the desert for hours!!!
Just so y'all know, I am a HUGE Dr Pepper fan! I actually brought along ~3 cans of Dr Pepper Dark Berry on the campout and drank all of it.
WHO ELSE LIKES DR PEPPER?!?!?

landuse- Good times.... Interesting braziers. Are you not allowed to have a fire pit in that area?...

I do like that, but prefer the cherry Dr pepper... I think its an American product that is brought up here...
I really like Ginger beer... Great Jamaican Ginger Beer co... Fricken love this stuff....If you aint tearing up over a swig... it aint the good stuff....

I'm not sure I've actually ever had Cherry Dr Pep, at least not recently. Although I have been drooling over it lately, just have yet to drink it!

Never had Cherry Dr. Pepper? One of the best sodas that has a Kiss of cherry in it? March on down to the gas station, buy a 20oz bottle of that and chug it.

Of course this is my choice drink. Granted I prefer making my own with grenadine and a couple maraschino cherries, but it's the closest thing right now.

We could if we had wanted to, but there wasn't a spot round there that had been used before, so we would have had to get a couple of rocks to circle it. And we had an excitable 7 year old around playing with his soccer ball, so we thought it best to use the official area

These ones work well. You can swivel the grid on that central pole, and the weight of the grill holds it in place until you raise the outer edge and push it down or move it up. Very clever

Been going stir crazy, so I needed something to do...

Well the woman needed a planter for the backyard... We have a tiny spit of yard of concrete... so a box is in order..

A bunch of scrap from a lumber yard I go to. Kinda slapped together but worked with what I had...
Even mitered the top pieces... first coat of spar finish....
About 3'x1x 15" high....

Yes, my kin!
Unfortunately at Big Bend my bunkmate happened to be a guy that hates Dr Pepper and love Brisk instead.
Some people.

I love the firepower valve covers... So cool looking...
A couple years back... I should have bought a set of nice Chrome covers I saw for a good deal...
Even to just hang them up...
