Camping is like pretending you are homeless.
It is sort of like that. But it is a bunch of other things too. Things that make it worth going.
When my husband and I got married 10 years ago, we put a bunch of camping gear on our wedding registry. Tent, cooler, air mattress, picnic set, stuff like that.
We haven't gone every year, but the last few years we have gone camping much more frequently. We recently found that enjoy the Devil's Den campground in Northwest Arkansas.
We are sort of glampers. We like to have our vehicle nearby. We like to sleep on an air mattress. We like to have toilets within walking distance.
Camping in the woods, with no one around is something we have done, but it isn't our favorite. Once when camping near Roaring River (in the wood, with no one around), one of our friends was chopping fire wood. He accidentally hit himself in the leg with an axe. It was terrifying. He had to go to the ER immediately. He was okay, but I do not like being that far away from civilization after that.
Last year, we went camping for easter weekend. We roasted marshmallow peeps over the campfire and colored easter eggs at the campsite. It was so fun.
Last month, we went camping in February for the first time. The unseasonably warm weather was perfect for camping. I don't like to go when it gets too hot or too many bugs. I want to enjoy the outdoors when the sun is shining and it is nice enough to go for a hike.
What about you, do you like to go camping?
