Are you a happy camper?

I suppose I am, I love the outdoors, I use to do some backpacking and I am trying to get back into that . I like to hike, fish, explore and ride street bikes ( motorcycles ). I retired 3 years ago after 30 years in education and I am currently working as a part time H.S. administrator. I like to have fun and leave my troubles behind me. The woods are a place where you can do that, it awakens the spirit and sets your mind at ease, as well as being a fun way to meet people and just enjoy life.

Do you need electricity and a shower or do you like to rough it?

I can get by without those items for awhile, of course others may wish I had a shower after a few days... I use to backpack some, so I am use to "roughing" it and I do enjoy getting "back to nature".

Will you be camping with a dog?

No, I like dogs and have two, but they do not camp with me. The would not like to "rough it" I am afraid they are spoiled. but I do not mind others with dogs.

Will you be camping with children?

No, my children are grown and married.


My name is Doug, I love the outdoors & having fun. I am just getting back into the hiking/camping lifestyle & I am looking for like minded people to camp and hike with. I am 31 years married, have two grown children, & like to stay active.
