I received this in my e-mail tonight:
The countdown to the fourth annual Great American Backyard Campoutâ„¢ has begun!
Mark your calendars for June 28, 2008.
We hope you’ll join us again this year. In no time at all youâ€™ll be enjoying a night of sâ€™more-making, stargazing, and nature-watching right in your own backyard or favorite camping spot.
You can find packing lists, recipes, wildlife guides, activities, tips and more at our new Campout website: http://www.backyardcampout.org/.
There you will find great new features, including:
- Maps that show participating campsites in the U.Sâ€¦ and abroad!
- A special ecard you can send to friends and family to invite them to join your campsite.
- Message boards about campfire songsâ€¦ recipes… crafts and activitiesâ€¦ or you can start a new topic on your favorite camping-related subject.
Still need a campsite? You can book your campsite online now using the FREE reservation tool at http://www.reserveamerica.com/. Reserve America is the largest provider of campsite reservations in North America with more than 100,000 campsites in 48 states!
