Hooray! Going camping!

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Every summer we camp at our favorite local campground (about an hour from our house). It has some great hiking trails, a beach on a lake, fishing, horses, boating etc. Not that we do all that is available every time... It is nice that it IS available!

Anyhow, we always schedule one camping trip each summer during vacation time, and we go camping any other time we can (according to my hubby's schedule). This weekend he has off, so we are heading off tomorrow. Yes, we sleep in a tent ,and we cook over a campfire. (tinfoil packs of meat/veggies/potatoes). We don't rough it, we always camp at a site with electricity available. But the bath facilities are pretty basic, so it sort of feels primitive compared to our house!

My husband always says set up is the work part... then we can just relax and enjoy our mini vacation. I am looking forward to relaxing at the beach... but don't worry, I plan on hiking so I can get in my exercise!

    The way I remember camping - setup is the work part for the DH, my mother's work never stopped due to the cooking, cleaning, planning, .....

    Yay! I'm glad you are going out to nature for a while. I don't think the "roughing it" part is the most important aspect of the camping adventure... it is the honing down of possessions, pressures, dripping faucets and other daily life stuff that calls us while we are home...particularly insistent every time we just find just a few minutes to melt into the sofa. I always enjoyed trips because you just bring the basic requirements to get thru the day and while you are in a hotel room, it feels so easy because the "stuff" is minimal (and not your responsibility) and the permission to let go and have fun is liberating! Go forth and have fun.
