Camping and Hiking
I love camping and hiking, it is my place and time to re-center myself, so this will be a place for my stories, trip reviews, recipes, and trails to hike.
I went camping with my family when I was a child, we went about 6-8 times a year and usually to Lazy River Campground (now called River’s Edge Campground) in Pioneer, Ohio. And once annually to Funny Farm Campground (now Loveberry’s Funny Farm Family Campground) also in Pioneer, Ohio, for a Blue Grass Festival that my parents loved. Actually, Funny Farm is literally on the Michigan and Ohio state lines, splitting the campground right down the middle. This is where I caught my first fish as a kid.
Once my son was old enough, I went camping with him for Cub and Boy Scouts (I was one of his leaders) My mom sold me her old popup camper which we used for a few years, and then my wife and I purchased an RV.
When my son’s Boy Scout Troop got won a spot to go to Philmont for two weeks, my son and I did a ton of hiking trips to prepare. This is where my love for hiking came.
I hope you enjoy my camping and hiking part of the blog.
