I know I promised a post from Vegas/LA with loads of pics…but loads of pics means loads of work…& it was easier at the moment to make a post about my weekend camping trip. At least there’s a nipple in one of the pics.
So after spending a fairly grueling 10 days in Vegas & LA working/filming/signing autographs/partying, etc. I was ready to escape to the back woods for a couple of days. No internet, no cell phone, no casino’s, no high heels…you get the point.
My girlfriend picked me up just a couple hours after I flew into Vancouver from LA in her parents modest camper. We drove & got caught up on each others lives. We’ve been doing this trip for nearly 10 years & we never take it for granted.
We arrived after dark & promptly got stuck in deeper snow. A crew of nice boys came to our rescue & helped dig us out. I loved sitting in the truck watching them shovel. We camped next to them & hit the hot tubs for our first soak.
Where we go is very rustic. It’s in the middle of no where & there’s usually not very many other people there. It’s just hot springs & a few out houses, fire pits & clearings to camp. Nothing fancy.
We just soaked in the hot springs, slept, ate, read our books & chatted. The 2nd night a friend came up with his guitar & played songs next to the camp fire. You’ll see a pic of our campfire with chicken wings cooking above & the neck of his guitar. Also a pic of me with my bottle of red wine & mittens knitted by my mother.
Winter camping isn’t for everyone & I cursed it when tramping through the snow to the out house in the middle of the night (the toilet doesn’t work in the camper) but this weekend was exactly what I needed to unwind from my work trip.
