    It's that time again. With more family activities going on over the course of the year, our at least once a month camping trips has dwindled to 3-4 a year. This is our second 2015 camp.

    Our home away from home.

    @Ganado mentioned dinner with Hanzo in her #Bug post. So here is dinner.

    Kalua pig on taro rolls with hoisin sauce was so good, I had two large servings. None of you guys came to eat...

    Dessert was pineapple

    Oh, Slammi likes coconuts. Especially at camp.

    Kids were running around playing together. When they didn't, the did other activities, like practice gymnastics.

    Or practice hula (I was too far to maybe get a good shot)

    Camping means camp fires

    With a nice base of embers (it was hot taking this one)

    Tested my Eagletac D25A outside (running 14500)

    Moon lite, medium, high and turbo. Tree is about 70 feet away. Nice floody beam.

    Browning some pork with garlic and ginger for the soup while some pork is slow roasting

    Added some thick cut pork belly to smoke on the rack. And you have camping multitasking.

    Food prep all morning and into the afternoon, got me tired. So I rigged up my hammock.

    Blurry eyed view from the hammock.

    I have a hammock like that in each vehicle. Posted a pic a while ago while eating lunch in it.;) surprisingly comfortable for such a light bit of cloth.

    So monkey runs over to me. No, she is not turning my hammock back over to me. She wants me to rig up shade. How rude.

    Nighttime fun



    I normally don't mind bathing in cold water. It is always brisk and feels great after. But when you are wet and it cools in the evening AND it is windy with cold winds.... Nippy!
