Here on the East Coast we don't have a surplus of cool national and state parks like you westerners, but we do have a few nice spots. One of them is Assateaque National Seashore in Maryland. Nice weather was predicted for this weekend, so I took an impromptu solo getaway (sanctioned by my long-suffering wife) to camp down here (about three hours from Philadelphia). The park has both oceanfront and bayside camping. I've always preferred the bayside, and scored a nice direct-view spot.
Besides camping and relaxing, on this trip I also am doing my 2013 taxes on my computer, sitting here in my SMB. I figure camping in a beautiful national park and looking out over a bay view will take a bit of the sting out of throwing my money at the federal government.
