We hope to provide some of our experiences around the
United States, Canada and Europe. My name is Wil and my wife's name is Elizabeth. We are both professors and like to spend the summers camping. We're both educators, so here are some
links to our university and college sites on the Web!
We have been camping since 1958. Between my junior and senior years, we drove
from my university, Colgate University, located in Hamilton, N.Y., to Jacksonville,
Florida. We began our camping together on that trip using an old small, green, smelly army
During our years of camping, many with our two boys, Wil III and Douglas, we've used various sizes of tents. For several years, we even used a
pickup truck with a camper.
In 1982, after our second son graduated from community college we began our
annual four to ten weeks camping trips during the summer. Our travels have taken us to all
48 lower states, Alaska, Canada and Europe.
The past few years we have limited our camping to Sandy Cove Bible Conference on the Chesapeake Bay. The highlight of the summer is the couple weeks
that our three grandchildren, Presley, James & Brittany visit us. Sandy Cove has a great children's program and super Christian
speakers. Of course we camp in our tent and find time to take short trips to new camping
areas in north east USA.
Check back periodically to see where we've been and relive our tent camping experiences. Thanks for visiting our home page!
This is one of our camps at Sandy Cove. This is our 'Europe' tent.
Here is a great National & State Park link by L.L.Bean. The individual parks provide camping possibilities.
In 1997, we backpacked and tent camped in Europe and Scotland. In 1998, we made a trip out west and into Canda. In 1999, we took our family, a group of 10, to Alaska and all of us backpacked and tent camped.
