And really still glad I'm not the only one. Gonna have to start having neighborhood gatherings at the folks with the larger yards lol.


I tell it to all my co-workers at work. Hell, I tell everyone...

By the time my teardrop is done, the price of gas will probably too espensive to go anywhere. So, yeah, I'll be camping in the parking lot. The neighbors already think I'm weird anyway.

I voted "Other"....I often camp in my mother's backyard. It's a great setting in the Wisconsin bluff country near the Mississippi River. Usually there are other family members, nieces & nephews who show up. Makes for a great, quick over-nighter.

Last summer the Sunspot was parked in my brother-in-law's back field, about a mile from my house. I camped there three times.

Now it's parked in my condo's overflow parking area, where I did overnight in it once. Since I'm on 10-lb-max lifting restrictions right now, I may be limited on how many times I can move it this summer. So I may be camping in the back field again...but if I can, I want to get to the three state parks within 30 miles of home.

Either way, it was a great getaway!

Nice Len, anyone with a pond will tell you two things
#1 It is the best thing they ever put in.
#2 It is too small or the first one was too small

mine over 5000 gallons, and yeah the first one was too small!
