James and I went camping for 2 nights at Alexander Springs. The campground was nice (although noisy at night), and the weather was perfect. We brought both cars because Alexander Springs is a little over an hour from each of our houses – northwest for me and southwest for James.
There was no electricity at the campsite, but fortunately I had a battery-operated air pump so we could still sleep on the air mattress (phew!!). The knob on our gas stove broke Sunday night and we didn’t have pliers to grab the stem without the knob, so we cooked over the campfire the rest of our visit.
We used the new Columbia tent I found on Craig’s List. It was awesome!! The perfect size, and tons of great features.
Saturday morning we woke up to the sun peeping through the trees. It never looks as good in pictures. :-/
After the hike we packed our lunch and headed to the river with the kayaks. On the way there we saw a couple of HUGE spiders.
It was a nice weekend and we’ll likely come back to camp here again. With pliers.
