~ Carmen When we go camping, I love cooking over a campfire (see Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love)!  I also want ease of preparation and clean up.  After all, I’m camping to relax, not create more work for myself! Last weekend, on our camping trip to Greers Ferry State Park, I decided I wanted to make......
~ Carmen I admit it.  I love camping gadgets!  See Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love.  My newest camp cooking obsession is pie iron.  I bought one and used it for several meals on our last camping trip.  It was so much fun, I ordered two more and a carrying case.  This weekend we’ll be camping......
~ Carmen As perviously posted, I love using a dutch oven when camping. (See Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love)   Using a dutch oven really expands what you can make using charcoal or an open fire.   On our last several camping trips, I’ve made stuffed bell peppers.  It is easy to adjust the recipe depending......

(see Whirlpool Trails post) The last day of Memorial Day weekend, I had somewhat of a trusty mountain bike with broken spoke, misaligned rim and tire and a working front brake. Hmmm trusty, not......
~ Joe Finding the Good Trails Around Oxford We took our trailer to the first camping trip on Memorial Day weekend to John Kyle State Park Sardis, MS. It was an upgrade from the tent camping we had in our last outing at Devils’s Den State Park AR. However, we did bring the tent along......

~ Joe Selling It The Weekend April 3, 2016 stands out as one of my most memorable camping trips with my two loves camping and mountain biking (and you, too, Carmen). I broached the subject with my avid camping spouse about the epic 28th OORC (Ozark Off-Road Cyclist) Annual Mountain Bike Festival at the Devils......
  ~ Carmen “I’ll be at the ball field all weekend with Jane’s soccer tournament.  Then somehow I have to get Jake to karate and Jill to her softball game.” Does this sound familiar?  It’s become almost a badge of honor among moms to see whose kids can be involved in the most extra-curricular activities.  Then......
~ Joe This is my first Mother’s Day without my mother. There is no escaping the reality that Mother’s Day is Sunday.  All the TV commercials and store displays make that very clear.   Unfortunately, my mother’s passing at 87 from cancer is still fresh in my mind.   She left us on Nov 17,......
