    I camp a little different, usually it 5 guys piled in my truck, then we get an enclosed trailer and fill it with or hiking gear. Then the street bikes and the dirt bikes and 2 four wheelers and pick a spot on the map. Hopefully I can do it soon and I'll take a few pictures it's a beautiful for site who anyone who loves bikes. I'm a Honda guy recently switched to triumph for the street though

    I've always been a tenter, but going to try out the new topper this year. I would only camp out at my favorite lake to fish at, but this year I am gonna do a little back country exploring. I got myself a gazetteer atlas from DeLorme and it shows even forest service and hiking trails, as well as being a topographical map. Picked a few different places that I am going to try so I'm pretty excited.

    we pull a Rockwood tent trailer.....usually fill the truck with bikes / firewood / chairs / coolers. Hope to camp maybe every 2nd
    or 3 rd weekend with new schedule at work having me off every weekend. Probably most trips to a site that has a pool as we
    are not really set-up for back-woods stuff. We usually tour around some days and find a market, or a Tim Horton's, or Ice Cream

    We have a tt, and a seasonal spot we started last year. It's close enough to get to work, but far enough away to be the 'summer place'. When the kids have ball tournements, we'll pull up stakes and hit the nearby state park for the weekend. I think the whole crew is joining me at MIS this year, and we're planning a trip to AZ for Christmas.
    We're outside most of the time, and the trailer is mostly a rain shelter. If I can figure out this dish thing, we'll get to watch the Tiger's game, too!

    Enjoy the season!

    We have a Laredo 5th wheel that we take to Missouri State Parks at least every other weekend. Our last trip we went to Lake Catherine State Park in Hot Springs AR. The bad news was my 2001 Duramax gave up about 5 miles from the park. The good news is I now have a 2012 2500HD!!

    My idea of camping is a Hyatt and 'roughing it' is a Motel 6. Seriously. LOL
