Where is everyone? It's the weekend before the 4th and campgrounds are not even 1/8th of capacity. I got ALL WEEK OFF, this is like the perfect camp holiday, having 7 days to camp.

So last night started the Fireworks shows., going to be great since 4th is mid week, I have the opportunity to watch 5 public displays and plenty of time for private backyard shows.

Have a happy 4th and love watching my $4k stash of pyro go up in smoke!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We went to the Indy Zoo yesterday morning and usually on a Saturday in summer its packed. Yesterday it was easily a third of the usual crowds. I attribute it to the oppressive heat and humidity.

Most folks are at the RV Park, with their motorhome...

When we were living in Kentucky, the RV parks were always full and the campgrounds were quite deserted. I think a lot of people of gone away from pitching a tent to sleeping in a luxury motorhome with TV and Wi-Fi!

RV park here in Michigan is empty too. I talked to the owners a few weeks ago, they said with a mid week 4th, they were not full either weekend. I found that strange. But I do like it quiet. So I am not complaining!! But it sucks for them, they are a seasonal business after all.....

It is hotter than dutch love on a Saturday night out there, so that could be part of it.

Wait....you're complaining you've got a campground to yourself?? Fire ban here so many are probably staying home.

If I spend money on something that goes BANG a little pill is coming out of a barrel...

If I want to camp out, I'll just walk out my back door.

I just booked a hotel room in Myrtle Beach at the last minute for cheap. I didn't think anything would be available but I got a nice ocean view room in a resort for under $100/night. Nice room with a full kitchen and multiple indoor/outdoor pools.

We own a trailer and we did not go this weekend because of the heat. Canada Day weekend and the heat in South Western Ontario is brutal.

Most people will be there from the 4th thru the weekend after, not before.

I was going to take my grandsons camping but temps of 97F combined with 87% humidity, topped off with a lot of pesky mosquitoes from frequent rains, and it would not be good.

I had bought a lot of toy smoke grenades so we could play Army; maybe that would keep the mosquitoes at bay?

I'm on an island off the coast of Maine. Sea breeze is amazing and it's dead here, too. No complaints!

Oh whee... Fireworks in June. My neighbor started shooting them off last (Saturday) night. My dog isn't thrilled about it, and neither am I.

Can we just curb our excitement for a few days and shoot them off on the 4th?
