Well for the first time in a long time we went camping - we chose to do Crown Land camping, which was fun in general as we chose to camp out at the Torrance Barrens Dark-Sky Preserve for a few days. It was enjoyable save for the minor detail that it was the hottest week they had had since 1937 so ya that made it a little less fun than it should have been (not to mention the fire ban meant some of the things we'd planned on didn't happen).
We brought all our food as is normal and did a LOT of walking. Unfortunately, dehydration was king, undereating was the queen and getting sunburnt was par for the course. Hit the scales after we got home, the next day and still the same weight as the day I left = annoying.
Oh well we enjoyed the trip and have plans on doing it again next year, but at a different crown land area - that has better access to the water and with luck better timing for the weather.
