    I would love to do some real camping. I've been wanting to do it for years. No one I know likes camping.

    Well, I've got a suggestion, I actually do have a 3 acre Island camp in the Clinch River here in the South Western tip of Virginia, from the island I can see the forests and mountains of the Jefferson National Forest and the High Knob Recreation Area. Just 1/2 mile from the Island is a couple places to get groceries, gas and other supplies. (there should be a scenery pic of the island in my profile pics)

    I'd only suggest this if you like to rough it. LOL, The river is great for fishing and conoeing, and on the other side of the Island is a 1700 ft long spring fed pond for great night time catfish fishing. I have another river place with Mountain land for primitive camping too, but the Island is best. Nothing like sleeping to the sounds of water running over the rocks.


    So there you have it, a remote place to camp for free, and I won't even bring up politics or that 'other' subject.

    Judging from the attached pic, I would suggest camping in your backyard or balcony. J/K- although I know people that really do that.

    I'm new to Wisconsin and I hear the camping up north in incredible. A bunch of my friends are going to the Boundary Waters next week, too, and I'd love to go! I love camping. icon_smile.gif

    I used to go camping a lot when I was younger. I haven't for a while, and always thought that I had sort of grown out of it. I enjoy being outside and pretty much all of the aspects of camping except for sleeping on the ground. A few months ago I went and revisited many of my old camping places in Northern Maine and Canada. I have to admit part of me was actually envious of the people spending the night. I am now thinking it might have been the people I was with the last couple times, rather than the outdoor experience itself that turned me away from camping. I have started car camping which I really do enjoy. I have made a big bed and put it in the back of the SUV and its the best of both worlds. I would try tenting it again if the right opportunity presented itself. I will admit that one thing that I have noticed is that camping is more enjoyable with other people. When ever I'm in a campground I always like to have a campfire and invite anyone who happens to be around to come by. I have met many fun and interesting people that way and have so many stories I have heard from strangers I met around a camp fire. Some I have stayed in touch with and some I haven't, but in someways I think its a good experience to become very close to someone for only a very short amount of time. I may not have tent camped in a while, but my recollection of it is clear, so I'm happy to answer any and all questions.

    I'd think twice about going to the boundary waters in mid summer unless you want to invest heavily in the company that makes "OFF" bug spray. I have family that go up twice a year and they make it a point to go either early spring before the bugs get started or after the first frost in early fall. They tried it in the summer and said the bugs were like clouds they were so numerous and that it was impossible to enjoy anything because of them.

    Mid summer the place to camp is in the smokies or the cherokee forest, there are far fewer bugs and once your in the Mountains you escape the heat too. I live in the mountains and I can sit on my porch or deck in the evening and not get chewed up, but you sure cannot do that in the north.
