Now I have said before that I am not a camper as I have previously explains in Wow What a Week. My in laws absolutely love to camp. They lived in the city and then moved into a semi-rural area. They use camping as a vacation and getaway from it all. They love to camp. They have grown from tent camping to a pop-up camper and now into a bumper pull. It is a nice little camper where they can keep the majority of the stuff in the camper and ready to go whenever the feeling hits them.
I have lived in the country my entire life. My house is further away from the neighbors than most camp sites are apart. My home is quieter than most campgrounds. I was never meant to sleep on the ground. I am fortunate enough to own an awesomely comfortable bed and I intend on using it as much as possible. The thought of a nylon dome covering my head to save me from the from the weather and creatures of the wilderness. I have been around enough wildlife to know that when they want something a thin piece of material is not going to keep them out.
To me a pop-up is nothing more than a glorified tent on wheels. I will admit it is a bit more comfortable to sleep in but is still not my idea of a vacation. Their new camper is a fantastic improvement to the previous options. A little small for what I would want but it is perfect for them and for anyone staying with them a night or two. Other than being a tad on the hard side the dinette makes a fantastic bed. And I get the whole thing to myself. I never, ever sleep alone so this is a real treat.
Now other than the tent/pop-up/camper thing , I have a real issue just sitting around and doing nothing. A million things go through my head and my to do list at home just keeps getting long with each passing moment. I think of all the things I could and should be doing. Anyways to me camping is just a waste of time. One day is great. By day two I am ready to come home. And after that I am willing to do juts about anything to amuse myself and to keep from falling into the black hole of boredom!
How do you feel about camping?
