Camping

So good news. While at my locla wally-world (shut up, I needed some socks and white t-shirts.), my sister was with me, and we browsed for a while. Well, eventually made it to the sporting/outdoors area, and she dropped a bomb on me. She wants to go camping.

That is like the most awesomest thing I've had her say yet, and yet a big suprise, but still awesome.

Now I gotta get my truck fixed so we can go. lol

I know theres a camp ground off in Chino, somewhere around the 91. I wanna start her off lite, so she can get a feel, and if she get into it, then we can go from there. Maybe hike up into the Forest Falls area? Those are the only places I've ever gone, next to Lake Arrowhead.

The place in Chino you are thinking of is Prado Regional Park, on Euclid.

Been years since I've been. Used to be lots of flies due to the dairies nearby; don't know if that's still the case. IIRC, shower and bath facilities were clean and nice.

Are you tenting or trailering?

Most of the dairies have moved out (were forced out in most cases) to San Jacinto and Hemet, some moved to AZ.

The land mostly has been used for new housing, some of it lies fallow, since the economy died.

btw: Have y'all seen those TV ads toutiing Real California Milk? It may not be from real California cows any longer.

I hope the cows are still happy. They ask for so little, and give us so much.

Beef! It's what's for dinner.

Hahaha. Seen'em, but not in awhile.

Tenting. I figure I can get what we need for cheaper that way.

I had to buy an RV for my wife to go camping. Now we go out in it at least once a month.

Don't know how far you want to go, Sparky. But William Heise park in San Diego county is a beautiful place to tent camp. In the hills near Julian. Overrun with wild Turkeys.

Went out to Baker creek out in the Inyo National Forest. You need a 4X4 to get uo the elevation we were at. 10400ft above. Some of the best camping I have ever done.
