Back to back Westy weekends

I enjoyed the experience last year and it was even better for 2012… the only time I have two VW camping events that I can be at right after each other.

All the events I get to are fun all on their own. And they’re all unique. My schedule doesn’t often let me have a couple of weekends in a row without a photo assignment until late September though so when the opportunity presents itself I jump at it.

First up was Westies at Watkins which Andrea and I were both at last year. This year Andrea couldn’t make it so I was on my own. If you follow my blog you’ve read all about that campout so I won’t re-tell the tale. And last year Andrea couldn’t make the 2011 Buses at Bon Echo so I went up early and came home on the Saturday (missing the crock-pot dinner Saturday night). This year she got to see Bon Echo again for the first time since her childhood. We had a great weekend.

The weather was nice… lots of sun so the days were warm. Cool nights so an evening and breakfast campfire were the order of both ends of each day. A little wind and a few brief rain showers were a distraction (nothing like last year when it was around freezing at night and the wind forced the dinner to move to a more sheltered site!). And an added bonus was seeing a couple of cyclist friends who were up checking out some secret trails. It was great to see Catrina and John (and their dog Charlie of course), it was also great to learn a little about the trails they were riding… we’ll definitely want to check them out so another trip to the area is in order.

Well… enough words, here a few photos from the weekend. Next up will be Vermont for a week of mountain biking at Kingdom Trails, yet more camping in Babe, and a little photography. I hear the colours are at their best!
