since I have updated the blog so time to play catch up.
We belong to Virginia Campers, http://www.vacampers.com, a group of folks from all over Virginia that just enjoy camping together and the fellowship that comes along with that. Every year they have a Spring and Fall Rally to try and get everybody together in the same place at the same time to welcome in the new camping season and to also say goodbye to the season.
This years Spring Rally was held April 26-28th at Shenandoah River State Park in Bentonville, VA. We had a huge turnout with 23 sites reserved by the group in the campground. There was also a 50’s theme to the Rally which included music, movies, costumes and a great hamburger cookout including burgers, dogs, fries and more side dishes and desserts than could be counted! We even had some friends of one of the campers bring some old cars on Saturday. A good time was had by all!
Even though we have been to this Park many times and found most of the geocaches on previous trips here there was 1 new geocache that we needed to find. The State Parks have a series of geocaches they put out each year in each of the State Parks. This years series is entitled “Tree-mendous Adventures”. The geocache here was called VSP Shenandoah River Tree-mendous Adventure and was identified on http://www.geocaching.com as GC4735B. Located on one of the trails past the primitive tent camping sites, the hide was off a boardwalk through the woods, which made for an easy walk to the find. We found the container, signed the logbook inside and continued our walk to take some photographs in the woods before heading back to the Rally and our friends.
Shenandoah River State Park is a beautiful Park with a new RV campground featuring 32 sites with w/e hookups. Wildlife and scenic views abound here and we highly recommend everyone to try this campground at least once in their lives. You can find more info on the Park and campground here: http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/and.shtml
Thanks for taking the time to visit our blog. It’s a work in progress but we hope you like it!
