I Can’t Decide If I Should Feel Guilty About Missing So Many of My Daily Blog Posts Due to Camping

Nah… 😉

Music Monday – “From nine till five I have to spend my time at work/The job is very boring, I’m an office clerk/The only thing that helps me pass the time away/Is knowing I’ll be back at Echo Beach some day.”

Five Disadvantages of a Seasonal Site

I did a post about the advantages of a seasonal camp site so it’s only fair to list some of the disadvantages. I already mentioned that it ends up being more expensive than you realise. You end up feeling obligated (or at least we do) to go out to your camp site as much as […]
