Planning a weekend camping trip with a couple of "the guys". There's a somewhat isolated spot that we've gone to since the '80s with great surf & fishing. Just getting my camping gear from the garage lifts my spirits.
Also, I'll be heading out a day earlier than the other guys to secure the spot, so I will have a whole day & night completely to myself. In dealing with my Wife's BP I've found that I often feel overloaded with verbage and nervous energy, or dragged down with her complete depression and lethargy, depending on meds / moods / etc. So a few days outdoors with no schedule, no phone, and no worries is just what the Dr. ordered!
Now we just need to pick a weekend - not as easy as it was when we were kids!
Im sorry, Its a mountain resort where there is snow activities, lakes in the summer, it is high up and beautiful. It is only 112 miles away from us, so relatively close.

Have fun Hopeful! I want to go to Big Bear. I have only been there once when I was about 3 years old. I remember chasing the donkeys and getting caught by my dad, and being in a lake with moss that was real gross. I remember my dad sending me outside of our 5th wheel trailer during dinner to go to the bathroom too and telling me to take my fork with me and use it to stab any wild animals if they tried to get me! LOL I remember a few other things too. I would love to go there again but we always end up going to Solvang and would like to go to Yosemite again.

Sounds like a wonderful place to go play. Have a great time, hopeful!
We just have a quiet weekend planned. Nothing exciting, and I'm ok with that. We just want to get through next week's episode with the pre-trial hearing.
