Monday’s Marshmallow Moments


My girls sitting dock-side at Bartlett Lodge in Algonquin Provincial Park. Each time we visit the park we make a supper reservation – Yummy!

Happy Camping!

This week has been a crazy work week, this is an understatement, which explains why I haven’t been adding much in terms of quality content lately.

Therefore, this Friday’s Fireside Funny is going to be short and sweet, as I am pooped (no pun intended).

REBLOG: Pack It Up, Pack It In, Let Our Camping Trip Begin

This is a post from our 2012 blog about our annual camping trip to Algonquin Provncial Park. It highlights how I organized our Rockwood Roo Hybrid to accommodate 4 people for 2 weeks. I’m excited to be organizing our new Flagstaff 29bhkd trailer for the summer!

The Therriault Camping Adventure, 2012

Transitioning to Extended Stay Camping – The Reasoning

(Brace yourselves – it’s a long winded post. I assure you this regurgitation won’t happen often!)

I decided to write this blog because we just found out that we are going to be “Extended Stay Campers” for the 2014 camping season. After the initial excitement and celebrations, we started to realize that we were entering a new category of camping – one that we do not know much about. So what does one do when you want to learn about something? Well, you google it. Surprisingly, I could not find much information on what a newbie should know – tips, tricks, ideas, organization, etc. So I thought that, perhaps, it may be a good idea to journal about our experiences as new “Extended Stay Campers.”
