My D.L. Bliss Camping Trip

Three nights and four days at D.L. Bliss site #103. LOVED IT!

Me and my 6 yr old

I spent my 46th birthday celebrating with our good friends the Millers at D.L. Bliss Campground. My girlfriend Deb. took me to lunch at Sunnyside where we shared a bottle of wine and ate deck side watching Lake Tahoe's spectacular views of snow topped mountains in 80degree weather.

Every year I want my camp trip to be better than the last one. I try something new and let go of things that didn't work . This trip was my most perfect trip in 16years.

Our obsession for camping is wanting to make the next trip better, bring better stuff and make it less work. "next trip I'm going to do this instead of that" we say to ourselves.

Here is what made this trip the best.
Camp with other people that you know you jive with
Choose a beautiful location
Bring your dog

A tired dog is a good dog
Use big buckets to bring wood from home
Make sure your coffee stays hot
Drink and have pleanty of water
Use a tarp outside your tent
Use mason gars intead of plastic
Use screw cap for creamer

Lastly - Short Trip = Small Tent

Organize Your Camp Gear

Good Morning, this is me.............. uh.. Ruth

 I'm tucking in a quick blog post before we take off to Tahoe for our fist Camping In Style trip. 

This time I'm trying to go Camping In Style "Light"

I'm feeling more organized than usual
Maybe because I didn't start packing till yesterday and my mind is clear

One tub for beverages/bar

Fire wood bin

One tub for camp necesities
One container for dry food
And a cooler

One bag for beach goods

Along with all the usual stuff stuffed in my car

I can't wait to get to this 

With Deb
after camp set up
bye for now!
