No, no essentials taken and good that I didn't. I had a pesky raccoon hanging round my site while I was trying to enjoy my campfire. I had Mountain House dinners in the trunk of my car sealed well in double ziplock type aluminum storage bags. No odor type. The bags work well. They have a gusset bottom that makes for a handy bag support. I'll have to show some photos of them.

For the past 3 days my wife have been camped out 5 miles from home in a private park/camp area tucked way down into a area surrounded by forest preserves and borderd on 2 side by a small clear water river. We pulled up stakes today prior to the thunder storms that are due thi AM and the HOT temps that are suppose to follow. Glad we got 3 cool days and nights in. This morning 4 big tom turkey came out of the woods onto the grassy campground area for a short time to strut their stuff. I hate going back home!!!! :mrgreen:

Glad to hear you saw some wildlife and enjoyed your time in the woods before the heat and rain arrived ;)

It's heading out towards you...yikes.

There is a big wood burning festival at the same park tomorrow in celebration of the Summer Solstice. I will attend for sure!!!! :DBfire: :marsh: You should see the size of the fire rings....gargantuan to say the least !!!

small video taken from my campsite. Half way through is a wood pile and large fire ring made of a huge truck rim. It's small compared to the rings out in the field. My wife is reeling in a fire log :lol: (wind up radio) she likes survival toys :mrgreen:
