Nice report! I've been waiting for it. Glad your first trip without the parents went so well. Keep that one in your memory bank, all trips won't go so smoothly! Nice pic of you two. Maybe you can find one from your first camping trip together- back when you were 1 year old. Would be a fun comparison!
Nice trip. Sometimes it's almost like the park doesn't want you to leave. Stiff breeze in the face and storm clouds threatening the take-out point. "Are you sure you really want leave?"
