When my wife and I lived in Oklahoma about 5 years ago, one of our favorite things to do was go camping. We love primative camping - and the more prim the better. We have a giant Rubbermaid storage chest that we store all of our gear in. And when we needed to get away for the weekend, we'd just load the chest in the truck, pack the cooler, and go. Oklahoma has lots of great places to go (we liked Skiatook Lake a lot) where fires were allowed and there was plenty of dead wood to burn. Well, then we were transferred to DFW - and we just can't seem to find anywhere good to camp! We've gone scouting around to a few of the lakes around, but they either don't allow fires or they are packed to the hilt with loud party-types. ;c ;c ;c ;c ;c ;c ;c ;g Now, I know there have to be at least a couple of secluded, reasonably quiet places within a couple hours of the metroplex to fire-camp. To me, it's just not camping without a fire. We aren't hunters and I can take or leave fishing. I just like hanging out there with my beloved and enjoying a box of fine cigars and a dutch oven full of delicious camp fare. All we want is a little peace and quiet to enjoy nature and get away from society for a couple of days. So I humbly ask you good Texan people among GT to offer your suggestions. Where do you recommend we go? Or, should we move? Thanks in advance!
