Visiting with Friends

On Sunday we drove down to Padre Island National Seashore to visit with friends. Seth & Drea, Dave & Ann (and kids), Heather & Kurt (and kids) and Margaret & Mark (and kids) were all camping for free on North Beach.

Normally we would never pass up an opportunity to camp for free with friends, but we wanted to lay low this week and avoid the extra work that comes with camping on the beach.

It was really great to catch up and we hope to see everyone again while we’re all still in Texas.

Dinner Last Night:
Vegan Mac & Cheese with Broccoli. I made the nutritional yeast version and it was quite tasty. Served with Sriracha, it was great.

2016 Cost of Camping:
23 nights free camping
43 nights paid camping (thru Saturday 3/5)
66 days this year
Total spent on camping this year: $938
Daily average cost of camping: $14.21

    What a surprise to see the picture of our rig on your Campendium site. COOL!!!
    We are back home right now. Back to work. It is a bit of a shock, but we will get through it!
