Having one's clothes smell like
a campfire is one of life's pleasures.
Nothing beat sitting aroung a campfire
at night with a few friends, a case of beer
and a bottle of tequlia.

Mmmmmmm, Beavers Falls. (Edit) Make that Big Smokey Falls. Got my rivers mixed up.

I totally went drunk river rafting on the Wolf when I was like 16. The falls were so amazing. I don't know if my messed up body can handle it anymore though...

Ahhhhhh tis the season . . . . I'm heading down to Shelbyville next weekend for the first summer outing. We usually try to get at least 4-5 weekends every summer -- usually highlighted with a big group outing to Bong Rec. One of the best trips we do is the "lazy river' tubing trip on the Wisconsin River. Everybody gets an innertube and a cooler and you spend the day getting drunk and sunburned winding your way down river. You can't beat it.

I go camping, but my friends have been getting increasingly harder to organize for a trip. We used to go out to Kankakee or Starved Rock, usually.

I kind of hate camping. It was ok when I was younger, but I have so little free time as it is, that there are many more things I would place above it. Would much rather spend a weekend in Vegas than in the woods.

Camping rocks, wheher you car camp, pack it in, whatever. Simakos, may this be the year we finally organize a rendesvouz...I got my eye on Mirror Lake State Park...looks kinda pretty from the interstate. I've actually been meaning to round up all my gear...haven't used it in a couple of years.

Usually once a year with some college friends at the Champ Car race in Elkhart Lake. Nothing like waking up to the sound of 900 HP race cars winding up their engines. After many, many beers we usually end up taking shots at the Port-O-Let with a soccer ball to light up the person inside. Last year was priceless when this drunken one-armed midget came running at us with his beer koozie firmly planted on his stump of an arm. Good times.
Right in that meaty part of the curve. Not showing off, not falling behind.

I enjoy camping, but never get to go. My buddy and I were planning on going on a nice long weekend camping trip this year, but he decided to move to China, so that plan is off.

same here. only i've actually never been. having a mother who is a city gal and very anxious to pass that on her daughter, also, no one i know ever GOES camping regularly. in my head, it's probably one of the more romantic things i can think of. is that weird? something about being under all those stars.

Not weird at all. FOr me, it's one of the most relaxing, romantic things in the world. Force your friends to try it once or just go alone with a date.

Reminds me of college summers. We'd camp at Raft N' Rest in White Lake. The mighty Wolf has claimed more than one pair of river socks and a number of baseball hats over the years. We went back recently and the Indians are getting to be bigger and bigger pricks. Do you want us there or don't you? Make up your minds.

yeah that's where we go. screw shotgun eddies...that place is always packed and kinda obnoxious. the last few summers raft n rest has been doing a weekend party. you pay 75bucks a person or something and that gets you your rafting for a day, camp spot for two nights and all you can drink keg beer and breakfast and dinner(pig roast). good times..although they have entertainment as well but it's run of the mill northern sconsi entertainment.
