Journey: A Word About Camping


The Old Lady likes camping in state parks.

But she certainly has her preferences.

A word about gravel: UGH.  A lot of state parks now have gravel pads for tent campers, and signs forbidding placing a tent anywhere but on the gravel pad.

If you’ve ever slept in a tent on gravel, you know what this means.  If you haven’t, don’t try it.  Listen to the Old Lady!

Kudos to Rickwood Caverns State Park just north of Birmingham, Alabama, for its tent area.  No gravel, just a lovely leaf-covered landscape.DSCF5962

Oh, and the other thing the Old Lady prefers: weekday camping.  Fewer campers, less noise, more solitude.
