Ever since I was little, I've loved getting out into nature and just enjoying the peace and quiet. I was in scouts from a young age and perhaps that contributed to it. all through highschool we also had a camping/backpacking oriented outing club that I would go on trips with. These days its harder to find time to go on extended trips, but I'll often take any opportunity I can to even get out in the woods for just a night or two. Not much better than sitting by the fire with a beer and a cigar, watching the sun set. I do a fair amount of tent camping, and I also have a little 35 year old pop up that I tow around behind my old jeep. I havent done any backpacking in several years, just campgrounds, and remote locations on old roads and whatnot. I have a feeling this is also one of the things that sort of goes hand in hand with people that own guns. Lets use this thread to show pics, share stories and tips, discuss locations, and just talk about camping in general! Here are a few pics from various trips: Thorndike Campground in Valley of Fire (8400' elevation) Valley of fire State Park, NV: Ward Charcoal Ovens, Ely, NV: heres a video of that trip: Cathedral Gorge State Park, Panaca, NV I took this pic a few years earlier when I was working on a project with the park while in college up in Humboldt-Toiyabe National forest, Mt. charleston, NV. I proposed to my Fiance on this trip. here's a Vid Carpenter Canyon, out by Pahrump, NV Plenty more, but thats good for now. So, lets talk camping!
