Bishop is pretty hot all summer right?

I have a seen a few places there I would love to own, but doubt I could take the summer heat. On the other hand, I have my house picked up at the end of the June Lake Loop.

However, Bishop is absolutely gorgeous in the winter and spring. Fall too, it just gets a bit brown around the start of winter. Bishop has Owens river and the Bishop creek runoff from Lake Sabrina up top there near Aspendell. I used to catch some BIG brown trout there. Winter they close the road to Lake Sabrina and the road from Aspendell down is really steep so everyone takes sleds up there. And yes the road up to that point is open and a few of us have had some close calls with cars coming to the dead end.

I go down the Missouri River with a bunch of 7th graders. Pack more EMS and first aid stuff then my own. Figured I'd need a canoe just for all my stuff.

That sounds like fun!

I want one of those ocean kayaks (sit on style)

After years of fishing in the ocean with my dad in his tin can, things that have to float sound good.....lol But I just want to paddle around in the lakes etc.

I really don't like camping much, but when I do go, the most important thing to carry is a rain poncho. Saved my life once, even. I got caught up high on the mountain when it turned dark and the wind was something awful. I had two of those cheap plastic ponchos and I wrapped up and hung onto them all night long because I knew if they blew away I'd die. Didn't have any gear with me, except some extra clothes. I covered up with those, too.

Sorry but my absolutely favorite "best buy ever" item IS my tent... it's awesome.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.208019802542197.57781.100000025354486

Might work if anyone wants to take a gander...

I'm so mad at FB for changing to this stupid viewer thing... can't figure how to post a dang IMG now.


Though... come to think of it our skewers are pretty cool too. We've got two extendable dual prongy ones that are awesome for mallows and then one long (like four foot) dual prong one that's great for dogs or brauts.

OHHH and Christmas lights. Always bring a string, or the net kind, to toss around the area (or picnic table that's covered and has nails like Joe Pool campsites) for a nice glow that isn't too glaring... even 'small' enough to leave on overnight so you have light to find the loo without it being too much and you can't sleep.

Oh oh oh... and our air pump... totally awesome that we don't have to kill ourselves blowing up mattresses... plugs into a lighter outlet OR into our also awesome Jump and Charge. Technically supposed to for jumping off your car if you break down but it has a ciggy looking outlet for 'appliances' so that's downright nice to have.

Yeah... we have a LOT of camping gear...

That is a neat tent

If I could afford a new tent right now, I like the REI Hobbit or Kingdom tents. I can stand up in my big tent but not my guy.

I used to go camping in France when I lived over in England. Only a six hour drive to Dover and then an hour ferry trip to Calais.

It was pretty good. I liked being together with my friends. We always took our electronic games along and never actually partook in any of the outdoorsy stuff
