So anyway on to the camping and big news at the end so keep reading. Three camping trips were made in the last year (not near enough!) plus a trip to Tennessee. <<<kind of a disaster with the dog on 4th of July. I'll just leave it at that.
We chose Tuscarora State Forest all three times. Someone in charge there really knows what they are doing. There are almost 100 designated camping locations scattered throughout the ENTIRE FOREST. That means Total. Peace. and. QUIET. There is no other campsite close by....aaahhhhhhhhh. :) What a peace of heaven. The first spot we tried was very easy to get to. It was about 1 mile of a paved two lane road.
The next trip was in July with all of us. We tried a different spot that looked interesting.
But we really enjoyed this site. On the downside? Quite a trip to get to it. Miles of one lane gravel road that several times had a steep drop off down one side. GPS was also spotty back here, most often we are able to get in but for some reason it doesn't work on the way out. I learned to bring regular maps too. Yes, they do still make those old things. Ha!
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
The Good: Tuscarora State Forest, the new screen room, a bigger camper and truck!
The Bad: Unhappy snake, 3AM alarms, wiring plug in for the lights
The Ugly: Still dealing with the camper disease!!!
