On the weekend of July 17/18, Vanessa, Trudi, Izzi, Gustav, and I will be celebrating the great outdoors up in the mountains of Miaoli. Vanessa and I might be up there for the night of Thursday July 16th already, but we will definitely be there for the 17th and the 18th. It’s a beautiful campground, and not that far a drive from Taipei or Taichung. (MJB, I’ll trouble you to chime in with the appropriate directions, please?)
Feel free to join us if you are into a mellow weekend of family, friends, social drinking, playing in mountain streams, sleeping in the great outdoors, etc. Feel free to bring your significant others and your kids. Don’t bring your dog unless you are reasonably sure of his social graces, ie won’t fight with other dogs, won’t use the side of a tent as a toilet, etc. You’ll need a car or a well-packed motorcycle, a tent, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, food, booze, utensils, cooking equipment, swimwear, etc. There are stores/simple roadside restaurants within twenty minutes of the campsite, if I recall correctly, but nothing within walking distance. There are some outhouse style toilets, and there is running water for washing, but you’ll need to bring your own water for drinking.
We’ve done one of these weekends before, and it was a lot of fun. Hopefully we can have just as much fun this summer!
