    Grand Camping Adventure

    Jaime and Todd are planning another adventure.
    What are we planning?
    Why are we camping?
    What's going on?
    Who all is going?


    Good questions. Here are our answers:

    A) A week long trip to WDW's Fort Wilderness Campground.
    B) We are camping to be one step closer to completing the goal of staying at every Disney Resort. Over the past 11 months we have had two successful shorter camping excursions (WhipCOT) that have whet our appetites to press further and relive our fondness of camping. We were also inspired by 'TentFest', but not foolish/'hard core' enough to camp in winter.
    C) We do not currently (June 16, 2011) have any concrete plans, other than renting a site and camping. We are also looking into renting an RV (with delivery, setup and a golf cart included) just in case a monsoon hits us. Also because it is the Fort's policy that pets be in an air conditioned environment. Campfires and camp food are high probabilities right now.
    D) Who knows who will be there. We hope to have a bunch of friends (old and new) join us at least for some portion of the fun.

    I'd love to hear your feed back about:
    Fort Wilderness in general.
    Camping with a group.
    Fun group things to do.
    If you'd like to come.

    We realize that roughing it isn't doable for everyone or everyone's cup of tea. I feel you could partake in some of the adventures if you stayed in one of the cabins at Fort Wilderness or anywhere else on property.

    I'm fairly certain that given a tiara and a nice cape, I could save the world--one sequin at a time.

    I'm kind of excited that I can bring my babies on vacation with me too. See how they handle Florida weather, bugs and whatnot.

    Re: Grand Camping Adventure

    I have always thought this would be fun. Now that I will travel with 3 boys and DH, this is more of a possibility. However, I would prefer to stay in the cabin and rough it that way- they can stay outside! lol

    Not my worry, but I do worry. What if the pups don't do well with hot weather and bugs. What if they can't handle the whatnot?! What do they do when you go to the parks?

    After 20 years of sleeping in dirt around the world, I'll stick with a vacation home for roughing it at WDW.

    After many years of being a camp counselor and camping - my idea of camping now translates to comfort of DVC studio without the silverware and dishes

    Re: Grand Camping Adventure

    did tent camping at fw about 10 ish years ago. my family had 2 rvs that they hooked up, but me and the ex bf wanted to have our "own" place. so we had the tent, no air bed, just lots of blankets and pillows. i was very sore sleeping on the ground, but it was fun to have the sunlight wake u up in the morning...not so fun to have rain at night wake u up. we were close to the comfort stations for showers and laundry, which was nice. great area near the small river, we were far from the pool though. it was fun and i cant wait til my dd is old enough in another couple years to go and try it. although, i may decide for a rv then....lol have a great trip cant wait to hear more

    Re: Grand Camping Adventure

    In case you don't know Jaime or myself we like doing things with a certain amount of panache. <insert glitz and glitter raining down from the ceiling>

    We're talking an event. We're creating a logo for our event. We even have an 'official' name.

    We have been investigating tents and renting an RV, for the pups and in case of foul weather.

    Also looking into doing something very special and exclusive. Its in the works. Glad I have people....just sayin.
