Man bro what a weekend. Throw in some hallucinogenics & it sounds like a bunch of fun.
I feel your pain. Had many a similar nightmare - but all in one weekend? Wow, that's just dumb luck.
That all sounds like a total stress out. I try to get as far away from people as I can when I'm after a bit of camping peace and quiet. Camp sites with easy access tend to scare me a bit unless it's for partying and pissing people off festival style.
And another thing. This year was the first time I've ever been to America and I didn't see quite as many morbidly obese people as I'd hoped for. Mind you, the ones I did see made my eyes water a little.
I hate car camping. Got into backpacking late in life, but now it's one of my favorite things ever. We do a big Yosemite loop every summer, and
Tessa, in Sequoia, there's a place called Bearpaw I went with my girlfriends for a few days. It was one of the most beautiful places on Earth!!!
Try to just hike along the trail that goes there for a ways. I think it's the Pacific Crest Trail, goes all the way to Whitney. I love Sequoia
because it's much like Yosemite, but not as crowded.
Be prepared for mosquitoes this time of year in the Sierras.
We aren't going anywhere this summer, but in the Fall, we have some trips planned.
I went camping this weekend at lake kaweah west of visalia. Kicked ass. Was on a lake, very private and except for some dude beating the hell out of his dog for running away too much it was all good. Was going to hike, but we saw a two foot long snake hanging around, so we decided against it.
Yeah this is gonna be my... probably my 13th time going up there. We used to go up there every summer for a family vacation. Actually probably more than that. Probably around 15 times. I'll def research bearpaw before I leave. That sounds awesome. And I'm bringing my friend this time and he'll probably want to get out and do more. We go through Crescent Meadow every year, too, which is one of my favorite places in the world. I can't wait to go back there.

Lucky you, Tessa. so happy you get to go.
It doesn't make any sense to go camping in an RV if you're just going to sit in the thing all weekend. We, however, have gone camping in an RV many times and it's great. I mean I normally am in a tent or something but the RV is there for running water and easier cooking and various other half-amenities. It's good for family camping when there are small children (like my niece) and/or people who're getting older and don't do so well with the sleeping on the ground.
Also we still cook around the fire too (if we can have one) and go for hikes and and whatnot.
We haven't camped at a campground in years though. Arizona has lots of state land and such. Lots of old hardly used roads and whatnot.
I was supposed to go camping (four wheel drives and a tent style) this weekend but it didn't happen.
I should be camping on the beach this summer somewhere down by San Diego.
Anyone been there done that?
I could use any help.
It is a fantastic year for camping so far. At night not too cold and during the day its running about 75-80. Awesome time for rafting the rivers are flowing and you have some excellent rapids on both the Arkansas and the Colorado rivers. As far as fishing goes, its amazing. The amount of trout that are biting on any BS you throw out there throughout most of the day is pretty phenomenal.
This has been your Colorado camping update.
I use the word "Who're" often in this context.......Your mother is a "who're".
Though I must admit I didn't even ponder a possible alternate interpretation for that particular collection of letters.
If you want to learn how to surf, San Onofre is a great spot for camping and beginning surfers- although make sure you have water shoes. It's REALLY rocky. That's a bit north of San Diego.
You might want to consider going into Mexico if you've got the time and ability to drive. There's some great places down in Baja not that far south.
