    Default April Camp With Friends

    Back from a few days of camping. You might be able to tell that we were really roughing it. Thursday night was chili with all the fixins, Friday a mountain man breakfast (lots of bacon, sausage, potatoes, onions, peppers and eggs in a skillet), Friday night deep dish pizza from a Dutch Oven, garlic knots, Saturday AM another mountain man breakfast with fresh cinnamon buns, biscuits and sausage gravy, Saturday night - pot roast, potatoes, carrots, strawberry shortcake, freshly baked bread. I think all of us will be dieting for the next few weeks.

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    It was a fine end to the FL camping season (for most of us). The weather was just about perfect. The food was outstanding and total overload. I'll post some more pics today.

    Hey, Crash. Is that what you call roughing it or "A miserable hardship tour (but somebody has to do it)?

    When Character is Lost, ALL IS LOST!!!!!!!

    Speaking of old... We weren't sure whether this was for IV's or dialysis. It was a toss up with all the grey hairs and no hairs in camp. Turns out Mannlicher drank it. Go figure.

    Everybody looked like they really didn't want to leave. Great camp.

    I don't believe the Waldorf could have thrown a better spread than that!

    Hahahah nope even when I camp with my wife I don't even bring that much.. just my small survival bag extras I bring for non roughing it is a tent,folding camp chairs, some food for barbecues,juice and a few snacks
    Otherwise it's much the same things I would use on my survival trips
