There are reasons for not posting for a while.  Some are valid, some are excuse,s but I have returned and plan to continue posting regularly.

The summer was fast and once again I didn’t do everything I wanted to,  but I did find something unexpectedly this summer that we never planned for and we tend to be planners.

The surprise had to do with us purchasing a tent trailer or pop up, the story of how this came about is  from me being interested in outdoor equipment. I read a Blog and Gear reviewer called the Gear junky he reviewed a product called the Sylvan Go this an extremely cool little trailer that really gave me the idea of a way to camp without the tent leaking that we have experienced the last two times we tent camped. So after some research we discovered that cool does cost and made me wonder about value for the dollar on this product. Since we already have a standard utility trailer there is no value for us in that, combined with no local sales made this a no go. But one Saturday morning over coffee my darling wife seen an ad for a trailer store for new units for about the same as the Go. So off we went to research and look,  at the end of the process we did purchase a trailer, but it was a used not new. The reason for used,  we got more for our money and also saved the freight, pre fees and the depreciation.  So here is the new to us trailer, it is a Coleman Santa Fe  2006.  The pictures are of our second camping trip of the summer at Port Burwell. Due to my work and a shortage of holiday time the trailer seems to be a good option for us, after are trip we both felt relaxed just like a vacation away to a resort.

 Sure the trailer was a little unorganized but this is a combination of time of day of picture and us still figuring out our storage and what works and doesn’t for camping.
