Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Inside the tent. I like carpet on the floor for when I get up in the morning.

Nice! Those sleeping bagas look kind of heavy for August. Did it get that cool @ night?

My last time tent camping was in Africa. Best tent camp I ever stayed in. We even had snow flurries while there.

It gets cold up there at night when there are no clouds. We were above the 46th Parallel. And the winds off of Lake Superior is cold year round.

It got cold enough that my grandson needed blankets underneath and on top of his sleeping bag. He had a cheap no-name sleeping bag.

I had a Teton -25 F sleeping bag. It's the same one I slept in while camping in the Canadian Rockies and Glacier Park. It was plenty warm.

There is Small Mouth Bass and Northern Pike in that lake.

That is a Smith & Wesson Mountain Gun in .44 Magnum. For the very rare case in which a bear would attack. The best way to avoid a bear attack in camp is to burn all grease and left over food after a meal.

Michigan recognizes Indiana's handgun license.

Very nice setup. Making memories that your grandson will have for many years to come. He couldn't have a better teacher either, if he listens to you.

When my grandson and I went camping we cooked off the tail gate on a propane stove and a camp fire with a grill over it. Slept outside on a cot and light bag. Coleman lantern was the night light source. Privy was a hole in the sand. We like it like that in moderate climes. Don't like to have too much stuff to drag around.
