In Satara around a "hardekool"fire,with glass of Scotland's finest,listening to all the night sounds.Instead as I sit in front of the computer reading all the stories,I just imagine being in my most favorite place!

Tent dweller, as I sit at my desk with a cup of black coffee, I can only second that.

MM, thank you for the lovely stroll through the camp :gflower:

MM, that photo of Satara Camp site looks so familiar. I am sure Dave and I camped there in Dec 2005.....last time we camped.

Love the early morning sounds of camp as everyone gets ready for the day.

:gflower: Have a lovely week everyone.
