We had thought that the Minnie Winnie might be too tight for four people and two dogs.  NOT THE CASE!  The below is on our last night, before some storms were to hit us.  We hooked up the car to be ready to leave the next morning.

We had a great time with fires, walks, CAMP PIZZAs, walks, smores, walks.  The weather was warm but nice.

 We had what were supposed to be massive thunderstorms on Monday night.  They turned out to be just thunder showers.  Matt and I walked the dogs as the storms approached.  We tried to gauge our walk to arrive back just as the rain was starting.  We did that perfectly ... sort of ... as we were about ten sites from our camping spot lightning struck right by our spot.  It was kind of like when we found that bear poop in Algonquin.  It was a "WOW! Did we do this right!" that went to a "OH SHIT!"

We took a lot of walks.

We had a devil of a time with a cardinal that insisted we leave this camping space immediately.  It would tap on the windows from morning to night.  We tried using some painter's tape to see if that would work.  That was a failure.


Here are two videos of the dopey cardinal:

Here is a link to the first video which may be faster.

We towed the Mini Cooper and that went very well.  No problems with that at all!

Here's a picture of Lesa taking a picture of a turkey.

Another great trip.
