Woohoo! It's almost Hiking and Camping Season in NE USA!
« on: April 05, 2020, 03:53:02 AM »
At least on the calendar!  I've thought about setting up my tent and spending some time in the fresh air again.  Last year was a wash for me, and Noah won't be getting home anytime soon from the looks of it, so I might be posting pics soon. We had planned on doing a tiny knife campout challenge, i.e. 58/65mm knives only, but I'm in the 110 Challenge in the Edged Tools section so that'll be my carry.  Anyone else dreaming of the outdoors?

I'm kind of on the other side of that coin.
Looking at a bunch of tents and sleeping bags wondering if they should be put away now.
Had to cancel multiple trips we have been looking forward to.
Not sure what will happen with our ski/snowboard season either.
Right now I just need to squirrel firewood away.

I haven't had my gear out in awhile Z.  The last few trips planned for my son's boy scout troop were all cancelled with the virus lockdown, and the weather hasn't been camping friendly.  I was looking at the weather for the upcoming week and there's a couple of days that just might work :D

I feel like getting out for an overnighter in the woods, but I have to wait for our baby girl to be older/calmer during the nights.
Really looking forward to her being old enough to come along on hikes and camping trips :tu:

I remember how that was.  I know this sounds strange now, but enjoy it.  They're grown up before you even realize it.

I can imagine, it feels like she was born a week ago and it's already been 2 months!

This weekend I think I'll set up the tent in the backyard and do a little cookout.  Have a little fun and knock the dust off the gear.

It'll be fun.  We usually do a dry run just before the season anyway.  Mostly just to make sure we have everything so we don't get to the site and  :oops:.  I had a check of my stove recently but not the other gear.

We spent a little time last year investigating new camping equipment, and the plan was to get new gear and do several small trips this year.

In the UK you’re basically not allowed out :(

If only I’d invested in a spot of woodland of my own in a discreet location, as planned a few years back. Might have had a chance!

When is camping season for most places in the US?

I feel like these days with climate change, the most comfortable camping weather is in a vanishingly small window.  I was camping one year ago, and the middle of the day was uncomfortably hot.  Not this week, I woke up to uncomfortable heat yesterday, and was comfortably cold today. 

Maybe April/May and again August through October?  It makes it hard (for me at least) to decide when camping season should begin before it's too hot to enjoy.

April was a bit too early. Weve had quite a few inches, maybe even close to a foot of snow since the original post.

Then we hit a record for 2nd hottest day ever in May. 93 degrees.

Im scheduled to go June 14th to 17th. Cabin camping but still beats working.  :salute:

That's what I mean - Snowing in April, and 93* in May... what happened to the in-between?  :think:
