Lake Talquin in Fall

I camped at Pat Thomas park last night to try out the Chrysler van. Pat Thomas is a little park on the north side of the lake. It is west of Wipporwill Sportsmen's Lodge across the lake.

The van is very roomy and secure. I suppose it doesn't matter for my image at this point that I am now driving a mini-van! Lots of room for gear and I got a mini-van tailgate tent to create air-flow. I still have to make velcro screens for the windows. It will be a welcome addition to the fall and winter camping season. My little fan went all night on four D batteries and I was very comfortable. Not too many lovebugs got inside of the van!

I did take the kayak and spent several hours on Lake Talquin. I have not been on this lake before and I enjoyed it a great deal. It was supposed to be cooler than it was and so I adjudged it somewhat too hot to be camping.

There were lots of birds and I even saw two Bald Eagles. My camera battery went out early tho so not too many pictures.

  1. You did go to Pat Thomas!!! Did you camp on the RV side? I'm going to try to get there on the next wind-free day.
