Camping - at a Hampton Inn?
Another camping blog – sort of….I am actually sitting in a Hampton Inn right now enjoying a warm room, soft bed, my own bathroom and wi-fi. Why you might ask. Well, a cold front came through and it is supposed to be near freezing tonight. We bailed! We woke up this morning to 38 degree weather, a stiff wind from the northwest and a son coming down with a bad cold. It was time to break camp and move on to another state park for the next 4 days. We were moving south, but not as fast as the cold front. The thought of another frigid night and day was a little too much for all of us. So, we packed up, drove to the next state park, dropped off the camper and went to the closest hotel for the night. Tomorrow we are planning on going back and finishing the camping trip as the warming trend sets in. It’s going to be hard to leave this great room with all of its amenities – but the call of the wild remains strong. We still have salamanders left to hunt and woods left to explore.
