    Peaceful co-existence is the closest some ever get to nirvana.

    Camping. Why? Seriously: Why?

    My personal idea of “roughing it” is no room service at the hotel.

    Because it’s an inexpensive way to travel, it lets you get close to nature, you never have to worry about the state of the hotel room (or the availability of same), and you can eat breakfast with any view you want. Hotels are still an option, albeit an expensive one; but sometimes necessary if the weather is obscene.

    It’s also very peaceful and there are great memories!

    We have an RV. My idea of camping: same great view, plus indoor plumbing (& a queen size bed).

    Sneak out of the house quickly and quietly, stay with a friend for a few days and remove yourself from situation… while letting everyone else go on their little forest outing.

    Holly actually does want to go camping. But she has a reputation to uphold.

    Not if you have an RV.

    I love camping. Even in a cabin, you hardly notice the sounds of nature all around you. In a tent or camper you hear the birds, crickets, frogs, and wind clearly. I like campgrounds in the mountains with aspens and spruce around me and a rushing stream nearby.
