Our biggest camping trip of the season happened on the weekend of July 13, 2012.  Most of our mini vacation was sunny and beautiful, but we did go through a torrential downpour on Friday night, which, unfortunately, scared away a family as one member claimed there was a tornado on the way, and that there was no way he and his family were staying.  They packed up in the rain and headed back to the safety of their home in St. Louis.  The rest of us (including some first time campers) survived the storm, and went on a 5 mile float trip the next day.  I can easily say it was the craziest float trip ever! Because the river level was so low, all of the surrounding campgrounds were putting their canoes and rafts into our part of the river.  There were literally thousands of people on the Meramec that day!  Overall, it was still a great experience with some of our closest pals, and we can’t wait to do it again next year!   Here are some highlights…
