Hi :^)
Welcome to the Campground
A place for deep mystical conversations under the stars. Playing guitar, singing, marshmallows and sparklers also welcome.
I love mellow, intelligent company so please feel free to set up a tent and hang out any time. I'll try to be a good host.

Here's a little about me. I plan to expand it soon, but a rough outline to start...

What Linda Goodman means to me

Linda's "Love Signs" found me over a decade ago and changed my life. I also own Sun Signs, Star Signs, and Relationship Signs but I do not own and have never read Gooberz although I plan to some day. Possibly this summer. I consider Linda to be one of my top 5 favorite authors of all time, and that says something because I read a lot.

My camper is the one with the little colored lanterns hanging from it.

Silverstone My very first guest If you come back when it's still cool enough in the evenings for warm tea I'll brew some Kombucha.

Let's have a bonfire soon... maybe this weekend.

This is so fun. What a great spot youve set up here, Mel. There's nothing like the great outdoors.

This is how I roll...and camp. I'm headed out to the store to pick up a few things. What can I get everyone?

Linda's Sun Signs found me first. Then I moved onto Star Signs and sat with that one for years, Love Signs was next and finally Gooberz. Years later I looked her up online and found this place, where I have since found many a good friend....

Nice thread MM!
Hey since you're out getting the goods, pick up makings for smores...yummy!
We can sit around the fire, get comfy and tell stories all night long..ahhh.
Reminds me of being a girl scout when I was a kid. My mom was a leader and we'd spend a lot of time camping and doing just that.
Mom was a bit of a hippie back then lol.

26T Park that cutie in one of the spots closest to my place. Although none of the spots are toooo close together. I like a lot of nature, space, and privacy when I camp.


Helllllo campers! I'm thrilled you've arrived! Please return to your original posts and "edit" them to include a brief introduction (what you would like to called, any astro info you would like to share etc) and even a picture of yourself and your camping set up if you would like! (whenever) Then return to your "site" (original post) at any time in the future to update your information. This is no substitute for your own "home" bases but it would be wonderful to be able to "see" each of you in one way or another and "Know" who is in the Campground.
Soooooo, "What's YOUR name?" and "Hey, Baby, what's yer sign?" and after you edit those initial posts with that information, feel free to tell me below... "How YOU doin'?"

OH, 26T! I'm going to be doing papers all this week but I'm going to need some Bud Light or something for this weekend for serious celebration. Pick me up something good, will ya? I trust your judgment. I will also use your expertise to choose the grill foods so I don't horrify our company by suggesting hot dogs or something. Are you a good cook, btw, or do I need to find someone else to herb up our grilled eggplant or whatever...? :^D Lets try grilling up some quarters of sweet potato with Parmesan coating... we could wrap them in foil...

Also, I learned how to make my own granola bars this weekend so I picked up some bulk oats, every kind of dried fruit possible (don't forget coconut) some molasses, soy milk, some assorted nuts... I've got flour, sugar, cinnamon and eggs and some of the other ingredients but looks like we will need a huge batch!

Campers please feel free to submit quick and easy nutritious snack and meal recipes. I'll tell you how to make the granola bars this weekend...

Mel, I'd love to be your neighbor! And promise not to park too close. Camping isnt camping without a little privacy, nature and space. I usually try to get a spot off the beaten path or at an end lot of a campground.

Oh, and everyone, I have to tell you that that picture is not a picture of a bus I actually own - i thought we were making pretend here, lol! (i wish i did own it though!!!.....and also... if it were mine, i can assure you there would be nicer curtains in it than the ones pictured there. Kind of dingy arent they?).

In reality I drive a measly silver Ford Focus. But it's a very nice car and good to me. I'm getting new tires on it tomorrow (who knew tires were so expensive??!).

Anyway...well, I kind of had a VW bus once. And it was actually a lot nicer than the one pictured above. Older too, I believe. My ex found it, and owns it. It's in practically mint condition because it was owned by an old couple who kept up with it and mostly kept it garaged. This one was his second bus and he owned an old Bug at one point too. No, he's not the typical 'hippie' you might be imagining now, he's actually more of a 'punk' and just loves Vdubs. We lived in it for a for a little while before I found an apartment. Yes, good times they were... and I hope to own one of my own one day.

We couldnt go anywhere in it without getting stopped by people asking questions about it and complimenting him on it and asking if they could look inside. Older people would get really nostalgic and tell us stories about way back when they owned one of their own or whatever. While driving around in it or stopped at a red light, people would often just stare and smile or honk and give a thumbsup or wave. lol So fun.

um...well, there was a little campfire story for you. haha!

Okay seriously now. Let's pretend that the bus I posted is mine though. I'll name her Bessie and she's a Taurus like me.

Melody and Sunny, I now have on my list:

12-pack of Bud Light
Sparklers
Marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate bars
Red bliss potatos and Parm cheese
and tin foil
kabob sticks and kabob food
VEGGIE dogs (melodyyyy, tsk, tsk) j/k
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, for me
Wine coolers....because there's always one who "doesnt drink beer".
Distilled reverse osmosis water
matches

is that it? i'm heading into town now, so this is your last chance.

My camping snack of choice is veggie tempura. Get some tempura mix from you friendly neighbourhood Japanese shop, mix it up with water, dip veggies or cubed tofu in it, or fruit (banana - mmmm) and deep fry.

Wheels, where is that you camp? That isn't Brighton, is it? Looks rather lovely there.

I never went to Scouts so I wouldn't know what to do in the wilderness

Fiery, are you a tent or camper person? And what is your cooking specialty? (I'm gathering volunteers here... hehe)

Well, 26t, get some material to replace those horrifying curtains on Bess! Some crafty person can hand sew them while we are hanging out around the fire. Is there a ladder up to that roof tent there? That must be the sleeping area? MY camper is Huge, but almost always parked so I don't have to worry about gas.

So what is "Distilled reverse osmosis water" and why is it better? I thought all distilled was baaaad.
Ok, you have to get some veggie bacon too and hashbrowns and paper bags. We all are so making the "Breakfast in a Bag" recipe from the scout site. And frisbee later.

26t, my love, we might have to invite Wheels into our hypothetical imaginary pretend-lesbians non-sexual marriage because I think I'm a little in love with her.
She's a Venus/earth sign combo like us and she comes with cool camping stuff so it will be ok...
AND she's a vegetarian lasagna expert, what more can we ask for!?
Of course that would make us hypothetical imaginary pretend-lesbian non-sexual polyamorists... which would be totally groovy. We could ALL keep our husbands in tee-pees...
Wait, I think I'm starting a cult. Nevermind.


Wheels, a "kabob" stick is a wooden skewer perfect for stabbing on little round tomatoes and potatoes and cut up chunks of peppers and onions all in a row to be grilled over a fire. Excellent pics! Watch out, you're nominated for cooking two nights a week already...

OH! And SunnyRains is in charge one meal too... she has the scouting expertize!

ohhhhh yes delicious pastries are always welcome in a Libra's campground

I had the most fabulous carrot muffin from the health food store the other day... mmmmmm

Now, how do we make them or their equivalent over a campfire?

And what exactly is a scone? What are the ingredients and how do you make it? I'm thinking it's a dryish heavier croissant type thing. I had some a few months ago and that was about how they struck me. Is that right?

I am so misbehaving (too much posting, too little composing papers for school). I have to get to my homework! Finals week!!!

hahahahaha!! Yes, I spent many a weekend in the California mountains camping with girl scouts lol.

I remember something my mom would make that she called spoon taco's. You'd get those little bags of frito's, fry up some hamburger (or ground turkey) on the camp stove, mix in the taco mix. Open your bag of frito's and spoon in some of the mix. Then you'd add whatever else in your bag like cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. Mix it up in the bag and eat it with a spoon. Quick and easy!

And of course the doughnuts. She'd get the biscuits in a roll, poke a hole in the middle and fry them up using the camp stove. Then you just add sugar and cinnamon in a paper bag and mix it up. Then when the
doughnuts are done, you dump them in the bag and shake them up. Presto, home made doughnuts. Us kids thought that was way groovy lol.

I actually didn't try smore's till I was in my 20's lol.

oh yeah.. and my parents have this tent that I sooo want to try out. It's a mountain man tent with a stove that goes inside the tent.
I'm going camping here when it warms up a bit, so I'll take some pic's and share.
My 8 yr old boy has never been camping, so he will be in a bit of culture shock lol... but will be fun!
