Hitting the Road


I have been 100% stir crazy for about 8 months. I’ve desperately wanted to get out of here for a trip but been completely out of trip money. My sister’s family has been planning a couple of trips that the sweet boy and I have been invited on, but they are just not affordable for our budget. We needed dirt cheap and in a bad way.

I think the dirt cheap part has finally arrived. In a week and half we’ll be heading down the Pig Trail to the Ozark National Forrest for a little R&R under the canopy of very tall trees and next to the Mulberry River (pictured above). I’m sure there will be reading, swimming, grilling, beer/wine, talking badly about our site neighbors, rejoicing when they leave, and so on. It is a MUCH needed camping trip and I honestly cannot wait.

We’re also heading down to New Orleans in July for an Edwin McCain concert (I think) with the sweet boys best friend and a couple of other people. The deal is that the 2 of us only have to pay $20/night for a hotel in the French Quarter. Remember the dirt cheap part of the scenario? You can’t pass that up. Plus, it will be 5 people in one car and gas will be easier because of that. I’m looking at $500 for the whole trip between the two of us. I think we can manage that. It’s not Canada or North Carolina (like my sister’s plans) but it will have to do until I can afford to go across more than one state.

Ah, finally a summer vacation.

  1. Yay, we’re going camping in about a week and a half too!! Heres to sitting in the middle of the woods and relaxing and forgeting about the rest of the world, even if for only a little while 🙂

  2. Oh, man! I’m so jealous. I miss camping. Both of those trips sound fabulous.I shouldn’t complain, though. I get to go to a wedding at a resort in Gatlinburg in July. The whole crazy family is staying in one biggo log cabin, where it will be easy for us to harrass and humiliate the bride and groom. What fun!

  3. I my goodness, I want to go there. Very, very badly!! And I didn’t even know it until now. That sounds like the perfect vacation!!! I’m sure you will have a fabulous time!

    Cheap road/camping trips are the best. Spending time, not money, is key. I know how you feel about going stir-crazy and longing for the woods. Jump in a cool creek for me!!

    oh quit – you know you’d just rather hang out with some young people in New Orleans than old people and their children in NC. 😉 *snif*

    I’m not a huge fan of camping, but your trip sounds fun! Have a wonderful time and can’t wait to see pics when you get back.Sylvie
