That was a lovely weekend.

Friday, after work, we packed up the truck, hitched up the new-to-us camper, and headed a short jaunt away to the KOA in Hagerstown, MD. Stayed until check-out time yesterday, then trucked home.

Observations:

  • Sleeping in a popup is interesting.  I mean, it's a tent.  On wheels.  With AC and a fridge.  Luxury tenting FTW!
  • This particular KOA is nice and small, staff is friendly, and the little restaurant on-site makes the best (and biggest) chocolate chip pancakes I've ever had.  Each was about .25" thick and as wide as a dinner plate...and they give you THREE.  
  • This weekend was expensive, but most of that went to outfitting the camper.  We have a couple more things to buy and we're golden, I think.  Our goal is to get it outfitted to the point where we just need to throw clothes in a bag, food in a cooler, and go.  This is a hard transition for two tent campers to make. :D
We spent the weekend, relaxing, cooking, hanging out by the fire, and fishing.  I could think of far worse ways to spend a couple of sunny days...

Sounds like a good weekend to me! Did ya cook the fish ya caught?

Didn't catch any. We picked a bad time to fish - the next day a girl was catching fish right and left, but we had to pack up. She ended up with the rest of our bait.

LOL. it's still a camper. it's just a mostly-canvas camper...and Chris figured if we were getting a camper, it must have AC. :P

There is no fish in Hagerstown :) You need to go to Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes Delaware, the last two weeks of Sept. and early Oct. You can camp among the scrub pines. Lots of good trails and you can explore the gun towers and underground bunkers. Take surf rods and watch for the migrating striped bass and bluefish (at sun up or sun set is best, or an hour before high tide and as it begins falling.) In the evening check out old Lewes. The surf and sky are spectacular in the evening. If you go in the water be careful, it drops off pretty quickly.
