Making the MOST of it.

When I saw this camper set up in the park I was curious as to where they came from. Even though the park closes at 10PM and they will have to leave I thought it was great that they totally set up with their gas powered generator, awning out, and even bringing the canoe. Once I got close enough I could see they were not from out of State... they were from right here in Minot.

I thought, that is a pretty good idea, to get the most out of your new camper. Made me wonder where I/we could set up in town for the day.

Some other pics from our walk yesterday.

Just a note: I had to walk from park bench to park bench and take about a 10 minute break at each bench due to my current medical situation.

It was hot out (90 degrees) Baby doesn't always have her tongue out that far.

It was a perfect day.

The park has several petrified tree stumps as decorations.

Baby is the first dog we have had since the Park department aggressively made it's parks more pet friendly with stations like this one. We appreciate it.

WE have 3 state parks on lakes in our county, the locals love setting up and staying a  week at each over the summer.  They can still run home to feed the dogs & cats but still be camping.

That makes great sense Gwen Fowler-864-710-4518 SC * Mountain* Lake*Home . Our favorite spot is just 45 miles away but we love bringing the dog along with us.

It was a perfect day Ray Henson (a little warm for some). I too like the petrified stumps. As cool as they are I don't think anyone has tried to steal one... after all I think they weigh about a ton each 😄.

That looks like the size trailer I've been looking for Bob "RealMan" Timm SOrry to hear of your condition that limits you.

I have been dealing with it for months Doug Dawes and it's not getting better. I'm seeing a specialist this and next week. Hopefully he will get it under control.

While I don't have a camper, high gas prices have found me looking for more local ways to have dayvations.  I'm fortunate that I live near the American River Parkway.  I can get on my bike, and in a couple blocks I'm in a totally different realm.  I think that's important.

That sounds really cool Myrl Jeffcoat . Minot ND has started to add bike lanes for the 1st time in our history... about time!

Looks like you had fun!!!  We used to camp at the lake so we could wake up early and fish!

Hi Bob... sort of like camping in your own backyard! And you know I love the picture of Baby and Timmothy.

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well but happy you're not letting that stop you from your outings. It is nice to have a self-contained camper when on trips - you can stop anywhere and whip up lunch or rest or whatever.

It sounds like they were enjoying a nice staycation for the day, haha.  I have never been big on staycations myself though.  I am all about day trips though!

Thus far the only place we have camped is at the lake Kathy Streib but the picture above of someone camping at a City park did broaden my horizon as to what is possible and possibly fun.

Thank you Nina Hollander, Broker and I was hoping you would like the picture. I know that if you would come to Minot you would fit right in.

Our new (to us) camper offers us more opportunities with the extra amount of room, AC and a bathroom Kat Palmiotti . I am excited about getting out at least one more time this year BUT with school starting a week from tomorrow one more trip may be the end of it.

Day trips are great Brian England because you don't end up doing chores like you might do on a staycation. I think the way these folks did it would also keep you from doing chores even though you are in your own town.
