We've gone camping before at the state park which is about 3 miles from the house, just so we could put up chickens for the night! You're not alone at least. Happy camping.
I think that is a great idea. Who says we are tied down with animals? We just have to camp closer to home that's all. Or take them with you.. can't you just see us pulling up to a camp site next to someone and unloading chickens and goats.. LOL
