Oh boy!… This one is a doozy! I admit that I went into planning this trip as a tutorial on: How To Succeed at Camping with Kids… Vegan Style… but yeah, WRONG. Nope. Nada. Didn’t happen. We came home from this trip realizing that we were lucky to only get kicked out of ONE campsite.
I am ready to admit defeat, and this is how it happened. Our demise started before even leaving our home.
The day before our trip, we spent a half a day shopping. We purchased camping supplies… like a hot dog roaster, sleeping bags for me and the girls, batteries… and we also stopped by Earth Fare (it’s kind of like Whole Foods) for graham crackers, marshmallows, and dark chocolate for the ever needed campfire s’mores.
This is what our groceries look like… do you see the first problem?…
McArthur, OH 45651
We pack-up all of our food (including the fishy marshmallows) and camping gear and hit the road. Our destination was Lake Hope State Park which is about an hour and a half away from home. On the way, we see some camp fire wood for sale with a box to put in money. So, we stop and pay then grab some wood.
