Mom’s Corner: May Long Weekend
This coming weekend is the May long weekend celebrating Victoria Day. This weekend in our climate signals the first weekend where you “should” be safe to plant your gardens and there usually is no frost from the nights. Many people also make it the beginning of the camping season.
This weekend, we will be taking the family out camping. It's time to stock and prepare our RV for boondocking. Boondocking is camping amongst nature without the use of designated campgrounds or hook-ups. It can also be known as “dry camping”. In our case, as my husband puts it, “rough it smoothly”. Although we have a number of beautiful campsites nearby, we cannot take our ATVs. We have a solar panel on our RV to charge our batteries and we bring everything we might need with us to the site including a portable fire pit. We feel it is important not to impact the environment with our activities so we ensure that nothing is changed or affected and that we bring back everything we took out.
What does your family do for the beginning of the warm season? How do you plan to spend your long weekend?
