Maryland: Point Lookout landscapes…

Wet weather can really put the damper on a camping trip, but it can also make for some pretty beautiful landscape shots. And it gets even better when the weather clears up and bright sunlight transforms everything (including our moods!)…

An appetizer and a lesson…

We just got back from our camping trip to Maryland, Point Lookout state park, and we had a great time and also gained some valuable insights…

First, the trip itself was a wonderful “appetizer” as ┬áSilly Squirrel said. The natural beauty of the location… The road… The magical moments of morning light (and yes, I do mean “morning”… as in first light…. 430am wake up and all…)… and even the unexpected deer… all combined to remind us why we love doing this!

And then there was the lessons learned… Where other people might have been a tad disappointed that it was raining so heavily that first day, we took to the challenge and it made us think of things we need to prepare for the long 66 trip. We realized that we need to prepare for all weather and different circumstances. And we need to do it with a minimum of stuff and a maximum of organisation!

We have started our “list” of things we need to include in our trip kit! And it is growing…

Moab -> Route 66

First Moab in 2007 … my first BIG trip.
We just looked back in Josie’s diary about Moab. It is full of pictures, text, drawings of landscapes … It was so much of a dream. It makes me want to go again. Now our new plan is Route 66 in 2010.

Tomorrow, 27th of October, my birthday, we going to Maryland to camp there … this will be an appetizer to road 66!

What I like about camping is that we forget our civilized way of life and we come back to our prehistoric way of living : we look for wood in order to make a fire. Then we cook, (sometimes burn) potatoes and meat and sometimes we even eat hot dogs … which is really prehistoric !!!
