Jerry and I tried to pack light for our camping trip. Jerry was getting ready preparing for a road race he was timing Saturday morning, and even told me I could do the packing.
We decided to only bring paper plates and cook sandwiches over the fire, using our Coleman Camp Cooker.
(I would also like to note that when we got there, I realized Jerry had re-packed everything. Not surprised.)
We had a great waterfront campsite.
With a little path that led down to the lake, as well as a little private beach.
For dinner we roasted hot dogs over the fire and made chili dogs with Amy’s Organic Spicy Chili.
Chili dogs may be the best camp food ever.
The weekend was spent hiking, kayaking, reading, eating, and drinking many beers.

This was a great way to end the summer.
The best thing I ate all weekend (besides that chili dog) was dessert. After my hot dog was long gone, I put some Nutella, marshmallow, and chocolate into the hobo pie maker. It was too dark to take a picture, but trust me. Best. Sandwich. Ever.
Now its on to Fall, my most favorite season.
The season of pumpkin and hearty soups. Of sweaters and cute boots.
Bring it on!
Are you happy or sad to see summer go?
