TBD on Ning

I've just started looking, but here is a motel near the 2 hotels. There were only 2 reviews, but both thought highly of this place. I just called, and they quoted me a price in Feb of $58 a night.

Whoops, sorry about the link. I found another one link for the same place, and it had 5 favorable reviews.





ummm.... going all the way to Great Britain to check out Largo hotels for us is not instilling confidence in me, Teebs. just sayin'.
Deez, You know I'll go all the way with you...errr I mean for you.
I know. You're so generous, Teebs. Thank you.
There are tons of campgrounds around here.
what happened to your backyard?
I'm making my first camping trip next month, B A F! Maybe you'll be in the area & can join us!!! We're going to The Festy - a 3 day Music Festival in VA. Mostly bluegrass (neither of us are bluegrass fans, but it looks like fun!) There's also a Trail Run & a Mountain Bike Race, both of which Ducatiman plans to participate. My only prior experience w/camping was a 'drive-by' afternoon visit to some family friends in an RV when I was a teenager. I've often joked that my idea of roughing it was staying in a hotel w/out in-room WiFi. '-) I'm really looking forward to this adventure. Heck, after this I'll be a camping veteran, and all ready to camp in Teebs' backyard!

Deez, just a few camping tips or ya.


  • Lint from your navel makes a handy fire starter. Warning: Remove lint from navel before applying the match.
  • You’ll never be lost if you remember that moss always grows on the north side of your compass.
  • You can duplicate the warmth of a down-filled bedroll by climbing into a plastic garbage bag with several geese.
  • When camping, always wear a long-sleeved shirt. It gives you something to wipe your nose on.
  • You can compress the diameter of your rolled up sleeping bag by running over it with your car.
  • Take this simple test to see if you qualify for solo camping. Shine a flashlight into one ear. If the beam shines out the other ear, do not go into the woods alone.
  • A two-man pup tent does not include two men or a pup.
  • You can start a fire without matches by eating Mexican food, then breathing on a pile of dry sticks.
  • In emergency situations, you can survive in the wilderness by shooting small game with a slingshot made from the elastic waistband of your underwear.
  • The guitar of the noisy teenager at the next campsite makes excellent kindling.
  • Check the washing instructions before purchasing any apparel to be worn camping. Buy only those that read “Beat on a rock in stream.”
  • The sight of a bald eagle has thrilled campers for generations. The sight of a bald man, however, does absolutely nothing for the eagle.
  • Bear bells provide an element of safety for hikers in grizzly country. The tricky part is getting them on the bears.
  • A great deal of hostility can be released by using newspaper photos of politicians for toilet paper.
  • Any stone in a hiking boot migrates to the point of maximum pressure.
  • The distance to a given camp site remains constant as twilight approaches.
  • The number of mosquitoes at any given location is inversely proportional to the amount of repellent that remains.
  • The probability of diarrhea increases with the square of the thistle content of the local vegetation.
  • In a sleeping bag the urgency of ones need to urinate is inversely proportional to the amount of clothing worn. 
  • Waterproof clothing isn’t. (However, it is 100% effective at containing sweat).
  • The width of backpack straps decreases with the distance hiked. To compensate, the weight of the backpack increases.
  • Given a chance, matches will find a way to get wet.
  • Your side of the tent is the side that leaks.
  • All foods assume a uniform taste, texture, and color when freeze-dried.
  • Divide the number of servings by two when reading the directions for reconstituting anything freeze-dried.
  • All tree branches in a forest grow outward from their respective trunks at exactly the height of your nose. If you are male, tree branches will also grow at groin height.
  • You will lose the little toothpick in your Swiss Army knife as soon as you open the box.
  • The sun sets three-and-a-half times faster than normal when you’re trying to set up camp.
  • When planning to take time off of work/school for your camping trip, always add an extra week, because when you get home from your “vacation” you’ll be too tired to go back for a week after.


Newspaper? Reconstituting? Freeze-dried? In the words of that sage Stir Young, "wh-aaat?"

...and whaddaya mean I don't get Two Men & a Pup w/my Two Man-Pup Tent?!? 

Well, it's just that they don't come in standard pup tents. You have to upgrade top the deluxe model for that.



That tent is too cute!

I have to get one for my pup. Just so I can be happy, she'll have no idea what the hell it's for and will probably never go near the damn thing :-))
