Bike Camp (April 2018): Sick, Cold, and Wet

Bike Camp (April 2018):  Sick, Cold, and Wet

It has been a cold and wet April, not ideal camping weather.  Because of my schedule when an opportunity to camp comes up I have to seize it.  Despite the weather, it was nice to get out and enjoy nature.  I cook some pub burgers using homemade beer cheese spread for supper, I try another Backpacker's Pantry freeze-dried meal, and charbroil a homemade hot pocket.

Bike Camp: McKinley Woods 2017

Bike Camp:  McKinley Woods 2017

As a kid, growing up in Channahon, I often rode the I&M Canal and spent a great deal of time at McKinley Woods.  Besides family bike rides and picnics, we also went there in the winter to sled.  I took my wife there while we were dating.  It came full circle once I began taking my kids there for picnics. In all those years I had never camped there until now.
