Adult only campgrounds

adult only campgroundsAdult only campgrounds and RV Parks

Adult only campgrounds are campgrounds for adults only (usually defined as individuals over 18 or 21 and up). Many of these adult campsites don’t allow anyone under 18 – not even as guests. Adult only campgrounds are popular in the UK, Europe, and the U.S. and are appealing to adults who want to get away for some peace and quiet and to socialize with other adults who like to camp or who enjoy an RV lifestyle. Some also cater to those over 50 and senior citizens.

Amenities at adult only campgrounds vary from campground to campground, but many offer RV hookups in addition to conventional tent camping camp sites.  Some adult only campgrounds also offer lounges, golf courses or easy access to golf courses, game rooms, and more.

In the UK, there are many adult only campgrounds in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

In the U.S., a growing trend is for conventional campgrounds to also include adult only campsite areas.

6 tips for students backpacking through Europe

People often catch the travel bug during their years as a student in college. For some, studying abroad in a country gives them the freedom they had been looking for, the complete change in culture they had been yearning to experience, and the feeling of excitement they were seeking from a new adventure. Many other students choose to head out into the unknown by packing a bag, grabbing a water bottle and map, and backpacking across Europe for a few weeks or months until they miss their parents’ home cooked meals, sleeping in their own beds, or just having clean clothes.
If you’re one of those adventurous ones who wants to hit the road and backpack through Europe, you might want to do some research and plan out your route before you take on such a big adventure. Here are a few tips to consider when planning your backpacking trip to another continent:

Tip 1 – Choose the right backpack

Make sure you get a bag that can withstand all of the everyday wear and tear of your trip along with all types of weather. Its got to be comfortable, sturdy, and most importantly large enough to hold all of your belongings (and souvenirs!)

 

Tip 2 – Pack lightly

Remember that you only have one little bag to carry all of your stuff for the next few weeks. A good rule of thumb to follow is to pack once, then dump it all out and pack again, this time eliminating about ¼ to ½ of your original fill. Label things as “Must-have” and “Maybe” and only bring the “Maybe” items if you have some extra room…I think it’s safe to say that you probably won’t.

 

3 – Have your passport (and visa, if needed) ready at least 3 months ahead of time

If you’ve never gotten a passport before, you can file for one at your local state or federal court house or pick up an application at most post offices. Passports usually cost around $110 ($97 for the passport and a few extra bucks for the photos) and because they are in such high demand, they can take months to receive, so be sure to file early!
If you already have a passport, make sure that it is valid at least 6 months after you plan to arrive back in the U.S.
Make a photocopy of your passport and/or visa before you leave. It’s probably not the best idea to carry this with you at all times when you’re abroad, as there are many pick-pocketers that target travelers and tourists. Since this is your key into and out of countries and back to the U.S., it is wise to keep this in a safe spot (not in the front pocket of your bag). Lock it up in your hotel/hostel room and only carry the copy with you when you are out and about exploring the town.

 

4 – Photocopy your documents and leave the copy with family or friends at home

Before you leave on your trip, make a photocopy of your passport, visa, flight and hotel/hostel information, or any other important details or itinerary that will be part of your trip. If something should happen or you lose or have your passport stolen, there will be someone back home with all of your documents and can know where you are.

 

5 – Use student travel websites or companies to book your flights

Probably the biggest expense you will have for your trip is the airfare to and from Europe. Companies dedicated to student travel usually offer the best rates around, so definitely check those out before turning to other travel agencies or websites. Note that the cheapest places to fly in and out of are London, Zurich, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam, so try to plan to arrive and leave from these ports.

 

6 – Money matters

A safe budget to follow is about $60-$75 per day that you will be traveling. That might seem like a lot, but if you consider meals, hotels/hostels, travel, and souvenirs, you can see how all of that can quickly add up. While it’s a good idea not to carry too much cash with you at one time, you also need to be aware of ATM and international banking fees. Definitely stop in or call your bank in the U.S. and see what their rates are and if you will be charged for each transaction. If you need to use an ATM while abroad, it might be a good idea to take out a larger sum of money all at once so you don’t have to keep visiting the machine every day and rack up charges.
It’s also a good idea to give your bank written notice of your consent to let someone back home access your accounts while you’re away. If, for some reason, your card is not working or you need more money deposited in your account, having someone already authorized to do it for you will save you a lot of time and hassle.
Another tip: exchange some of your dollars into Euros before you leave, but note that the airport is not the best place to do this, as their exchange rates are quite high. Some major banks have international fare available for exchange as well as some companies like AAA.

These are just a few of the many tips for future backpackers ready to hop across the pond to explore Europe, but there are a lot of great websites with important tips and words of advice from other backpackers, so definitely do some research online before you go. What are you waiting for? Start planning your trip!

First Day of Spring 2011

The first day of spring, commonly known as the spring equinox, occurs this year on March 20, 2011.

The spring equinox officially occurs at 23:31 UTC.

The equinox occurs twice each year, when the center of the sun is in the same place as the axis of the earth. On this day, the length of day and night are roughly the same – 12 hours each.

In the northern hemisphere, the spring equinox marks the traditional passage of seasons from winter to spring.

The spring equinox is also known as the vernal equinox, from the Latin for “spring” and “equal night.”

There are many cultural traditions associated with the first day of spring, including the religious celebration of Ostara. Christian churches typically celebrate Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon, on or after the first day of spring.  Easter Sunday occurs this year on April 24, 2011.

The first day of spring 2011 falls one day after the full moon on March 19, 2011.

The Greek mathematician and astronomer Hipparchus is widely thought to have discovered the equinoxes.

The fall equinox (a.k.a. autumnal equinox) takes place on September 23, 2011, at 9:04 UTC.

National Green Week

National Green Week encourages students to learn about being green by being leaders of their own sustainability campaign.

national green week

The green education event is designed to teach school children how to lessen their impact on the environment through programs including recycling, reducing waste, and reusing.

In 2009’s National Green Week, more than 500,000 children at 900 schools participated.

How can you do your part? If your child’s school isn’t participating, you might be able to help facilitate this and raise awareness simply by emailing or calling the school. You might even volunteer to play a larger role and offer to talk to a classroom about the event or design a campaign students in which students can partake.

Whether or not your child is participating at school, we thought of a couple things kids could do around the house to learn how to be more green.

  • Help with the recycling.  Getting kids into the habit of taking their own recyclable containers to the recycle bin is a good thing. If the recycle bin isn’t in a location that’s convenient for small children, move it to a more convenient location, or use an extra trash can as a temporary home for recycling in a location that is convenient. Kids can also help take recycling bins to the curb on collection day.
  • Teach kids about composting and get them involved. My own kids love to grow their own garden plants, so there is a natural tie-in here.  Explain to them how composting can help feed the plants, meaning their plants will grow stronger.  As kids get older, you can teach them how to distinguish which kinds of trash should really go into the compost bin instead of the trash bin.

2011 dates: February 7-11 (or any week leading up to Earth Day, April 22)

The event is promoted by the Green Education Foundation (GEF).

Paul Bunyan Day

According to American and Canadian folklore, Paul Bunyan was a giant lumberjack who roamed the countryside with his giant blue ox named Babe, felling large forests and clearing land for farmers.

Paul Bunyan

As the story goes, he cleared the entire states of North Dakota and South Dakota for farming, among other amazing feats.

Depending upon on where you live, Paul Bunyan Day is celebrated February 12 or June 28. Many towns across the U.S. and Canada celebrate Paul Bunyan day with logging festivals and related activities. He is often depicted as a gentle giant, and there a many larger-than-life statues of Paul and his ox Babe across North America.

Note that his name is also spelled “Paul Bunyon,” but the correct spelling is “Paul Bunyan.”

The legend of giant Paul Buynan as a lumberjack of superhuman capacity is played out in modern day lumberjack competitions, most notably in the Stihl Timbersports competition each spring and summer. It features sawing, chainsawing, climbing, chopping, and other logging related events.

Scouting Anniversary Week

Scouting Anniversary Week celebrates the founding of the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910.

The youth organization that seeks to educate boys ages 5 and up on responsible citizenship and self reliance boasts more than 4.5 million current members and over 110 million members since it inception.

Scouting Anniversary Week is celebrated in a number of ways by individual councils around the U.S. Many celebrations involve scouts wearing their uniform to school, changing their facebook profile picture to a scouting logo or photo, and honoring volunteers who work with the program.

7 outrageous Super Bowl facts

As history has shown, even a match between the two best teams on the planet can pack a few surprises. As we look back at Super Bowl history, here are the most surprising highs and lows.

denver-broncos

1. Biggest blowout

The biggest Super Bowl blowout occurred in 1990, when the San Francisco 49ers beat the Denver Broncos by 45 points, 55-10. The Broncos escaped being only the second team not to score a touchdown in a Super Bowl contest thanks to a pass interference penalty against the 49ers, which put the ball on the 1 yard line, setting up the touchdown for the Broncos.

2. Zero touchdowns

The only team not to score a touchdown in Super Bowl history were the Miami Dolphins, in a 1972 loss to the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 24-3.

3. Cost of commercials

In that year, the cost of a 30-second commercial was $86,000. By 1995, it had jumped to $1 million. In 2011 (Super Bowl XLV), the same air time is worth $3 million.

4. Player bonus

In the 2010 Super Bowl (a.k.a. XLIV) featuring New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, each member of the winning team (New Orleans) received $83,000, or $4,000 more than the median household income of the state of Maryland, which has the highest median household income among U.S. States.  Each member of the losing team received $42,000, which is roughly equivalent to the 2009 per capita income of residents of Alaska.

5. Viewer’s freedom of choice – no more

The first Super Bowl, in 1967, was shown on two different television networks, CBS and NBC.  Never since has the big game been televised on more than one network. The Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in that 1967 contest year by a score of 35-10.

6. Biggest half-time blunders

The biggest Super Bowl half-time blunder of all time was 2004’s famous wardrobe malfunction involving Janet Jackson. The second biggest has to be 1993’s, where Michael Jackson sang “Heal the World” along with 3,500 children from the Los Angeles area.  A few months later, NFL officials found out about the child sexual abuse allegations against Jackson.

7. Worst QB performance

The worst quarterback performance in a Super Bowl came in 1978. Denver Broncos QB Craig Morton threw just four completions (for 39 total yards) and also threw four interceptions en route to a 27-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Morton was replaced early in the second half by Norris Weese, who then fumbled in the 4th quarter to set up a Dallas touchdown that sealed the game.

We are really looking forward to Sunday’s big game. (Go, Steelers!)

What is trekking?

Trekking refers to extended travel on foot, usually for the purpose of adventure and exploration. Those who engage in trekking are often interested in hiking, mountain climbing, scenery, nature, and the outdoors. While treks may last a day or less, trekking usually refers to a multi-day trip covering many miles and involving one or more overnight stays.

Trekking can be combined with other outdoor activities, such as mountain climbing, rock climbing, show shoeing, rappelling, camping, and cross country skiing.  Longer treks require more planning as well as a higher degree of physical fitness.  Trekkers to more remote parts of the world need to be prepared for a variety of conditions, including challenging terrain, wildlife, and weather.

Trekking can be done anywhere in the world.  Advanced trekkers are often drawn to lengthier routes that offer greater challenges and require more preparation, such as for unusual or extreme weather conditions, altitudes, or terrain.  Trekking can test physical, psychological, and emotional stamina. It can also be a great way to bond with friends, colleagues, and others interested in trekking.

Around the world, there are many famous trekking routes – some famous for the difficulty and challenge they post trekkers, others for the beauty of scenery they offer.  Some of the most famous trekking routes are in Peru, Nepal, Sweden, Tasmania, Chile, and Nambia.

Charity groups sometimes use trekking events as a way to raise money for a particular cause, such as breast cancer.

As with any adventure, the right gear can make a big difference. In trekking, participants can benefit from comfortable yet supportive hiking boots, an appropriately sized backpack (the longer the trip, the bigger the pack), and full-function GPS.  A first aid kit is a must.

If you are new to the sport of trekking, you may want to take advantage of a guided trekking group tour or take one of many trekking seminars offered by outdoor groups and outdoor outfitter companies around the world.
