Wow - okay - I better get my fill of camping until I buy a boat - but that''s kind of far off anyway.

Ignore those guys ...they don't sleep anywhere, they're always on sailnet

no big deal - don't belive that will happen to me, but I'll accept for the time being that it may occur - I just plan on cruising by following the temperate weather (the 70's-low 80's rule) and I'll hit any\all food festivals, art festivals, music festivals, etc. - I assume that some of those events may have me farther than I want to drive back to the boat, so I would make a weekend out of it and camp, and do the festival thang.

False Cape State Park -- South of Norfolk between Back Bay NWR and the NC border.

False Cape State Park

I don't know if they still allow it but you used to be able to camp on the beach overlooking the Atlantic.

Do pay heed to the tides if you decide to hike in on the beach. We failed to take that into consideration and had to walk in soft sand of the dunes. It was seemed like a death march compared to the walk in at low tide.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

camping

Deep Creek Lake (MD) and Raystown Lake (PA) have quite a few campgrounds also. Both about 3 hrs from DC/Baltimore. Do not miss the MD biggest waterfall while in Deep Creek Lake area. Shenandoah (VA) and its Skyline drive are very beautiful and has many campgrounds around.

Do camping in summer, trailer-sailing in spring/fall.
