That's how I Knoll

Over the 4th of July, we headed up to a campground near Knoll Lake. It takes a 45 minute drive in what basically amounts to piles of rocks, but the bumpy dirtiness was worth it! We got the last open space with a site near a trail leading to the lake.

I must say that we did SO WELL this time around:
  • Brought the air mattress.
  • Remembered the pump.
  • Got brave and brought a propane stove (I have this little fear of things blowing up...hehe nervous laughter).
  • Cooked eggs, grilled cheese sandwiches, sausage and hot dogs.
  • Read two books that I've read before
  • Had plenty of cold drinks
The weather was gorgeous and even though the campground was full, they were spread far enough apart that we couldn't hear much and only had to spy on the neighbors a little bit. AND we saw an actual deer! He was beautiful. And very tall - I'd say 7 feet. Amazing. His name was Dennis.

This camping trip was fab. Of course I want to go again, but I know I always say that and then it never happens. If we do go again, I am going to advocate for bringing some kind of boat or floatation device. We always stay by lakes but never really benefit. I was thinking maybe an inflatable kayak? Or can we just use the air mattress?

I say definitely go with the air mattress. Don't they all alternate as flotation devices?

Sounds like a grand time was had by all. I always admire people who camp AND who are brave enough to use gas stoves. I'm not very good with fire.
