We are a family of six that loves to get out there and enjoy the outdoors. Our family consists of two bloggers (Jay & Kay), as well as our 3 kids (who live with us on and off again throughout the year), and our bullmastiff puppy, Anubis. We have noticed how difficult it is to find detailed review of places to camp, hike, and fish. While we are not experts at any of the above, we certainly enjoy the to the fullest extent of our physical capabilities. We hope you'll use our blog to help plan where you and your family would like to explore the outdoors next, as well as just share in our adventures and love of the wilderness!

Campfire Ban!



Well, it's finally here, that first REALLY warm weekend of the year... and it looks like our plans to enjoy natre may be somewhat limited. We had plans tomorrow to set out for our first trip of the season. We were going to pick somewhere out in the wilderness, probably off of FR-550, north of Deckers, near Wellington Lake.... but the current campfire ban that's in effect may foil our plans. The forest service has instructed us to contact local park rangers to check on the specific restrictions in the are we are camping. Looks like we can have a campfire in a National Forest campground, ranger-placed fire ring. Here's the hitch most of those campground don't open until Memorial Day weekend. So it looks like dipursed camping may be our only option, and there shall be no fired with dispersed camping.... So it looks like we may grab some subway on the way out, and just pack some cereal and a cooler full of snacky-yum-yums for the next day. Good news is, looks like Wellington Lake is open for day use (but we'll see how true that is).


PLEASE REMEMBER, CAMPFIRE BANS ARE ENACTED FOR A GOOD REASON. PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE WITH YOUR CAMPFIRES AND ALWAYS FOLLOW CURRENT REGULATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS.

Here is the current information on campfire bans.
