We decided to explore the campground at Tomlinson Run the last time we went there. It was our first time to drive around and we were surprised how many many people were camping that day. Almost all of the yurts are occupied and there are pop-up campers in most of the camping sites we went to. The campground offers camping equipment for rent. You can also call in advance to reserve some of the yurts that are avaialble.
Driving around the camp site reminds me of the show that my husband and I watches on TV. It's a show where this guy show you how to survive in the wild even in a very harsh weather condition. All this guy has is some camping tools and some basic things he needs. It's amazing how he could survive it, I feel bad when he got caught with a very bad weather because there is nothing he can do to call for help.
We have never experienced to go for a camping as family yet but we are hoping that we could do it when the kids are old enough. Camping is a great activity especially if you have teens. It gives them the opportunity to explore the nature and forget about the busy life that they have in school and other stuff.
We are buying some camping gears little by little so that when time comes and we are ready to go, we have the things we need. We bought a sleeping bag when we were still in Korea but we still need additional sleeping bags for the four of us. I found a website that sells rucksacks and other camping gears and tools. If you are into nature, you might have seen the owner of this website, Ray Mears. He is a star to one of the popular outdoor survival in extreme weather condition show. I am not sure if he was the celebrity of the show we were watching on TV.
