Me and my family had our first camping weekend for the season and it was a beautiful weekend indeed. We were at Westmoreland State Park in Virginia. Got a little windy at times but was very manageable. Some neighbors came as well they rented a campground cabin.


First evening was low key with setting up and all. We had hotdogs, one ribeye, beans in the big pot, hotdog chili in the little one and taters in the coals.


Saturday morning breakfast over the coals.


A family tradition, Mountainman Breakfast.


Toot whittlin why I cook two pounds of bacon. Two pounds! It is for an appetizer for supper, BLTs for lunch and Sunday morning breakfast.


Home sweet home!


Bought two of these for camping.


One for trash and one for dirty clothes. Works great and love the easy storage when done.


This was the start on one of the hikes we took.


On the hike.




I can see the river from the trail.


The Potomac river.


Lunch, for me, was a BLT. Food just taste better outdoors!


Anyone wanna guess? Wrong! After cooking two pounds of bacon there was a frying pan full of grease. So, my buddy, rolled some paper towels, and put them in the frying pan. It soaked up all the grease. He then set them aside and later in the evening we started the fire with the bacon candles. Worked well.


Layering the lasagna.


This is a deep DO too!


Lasagna in the top DO, apple crisp in the closest DO. And a couple garlic breads on the grate. We had salad too and ice cream with the apple crisp.


Sunday morning breakfast. My omelet was three eggs, bacon, red pepper, onions, and Tabasco. Cooked up well. Fun way to do breakfast. Some did it over the fire some on the Coleman.


The fixins!


Toot watching our friend cooking breakfast.


Toaster.


And camping would not be complete without my Dad's trusty ole percolator! Love coffee from this thing. I have a good friend that takes his Grandads "Old Perk" with him to barbecue comps. My earliest camping memories are waking in the morning to my Dad making coffee in that pot. Great way to wake up!

It was a great weekend spent outdoors and with good friends. Nothing like it. Hope your weekend was a good one.

Everything looks great!!!!!! I treat myself every weekend to percolated coffee although its on the stove top. I also have to agree everything tastes better when you are outdoors away from it all. Wink

Very nice post Dan. You just cant beat camping and DO cooking. Ill need to give the lasagna a whirl. A couple years or so ago, I did the mountain man for my family on a trip and now it has become a "must have" breakfast every time. Very Happy

Hope you and yours are all well brother.

The lasagna was good. I think the recipe came out of one of the Lodge cookbooks. I can run it to ground if you want bro. Love the mountainman! Hope all is well with your tribe bro.
