When I mean camping, I mean with a tent and a fire pit and peeing in the bushes! Some people I know consider parking a fully equipped motor home with air conditioning and internet camping, but not me!


I love to go camping with my family. I think it really gets you closer to the real world of nature and there is a lot of relaxing and recharging to do out in the woods.

I think I would be much more apt to go "camping" in a well-equipped motor home with AC and TV. When I go on vacation, I'm looking for comfort and relaxation.

Back in college I did go tent camping once with a group of friends. It was mostly an excuse to sneak off away from people and drink beer and be silly.

Yes! I grew up going on hunting trips out in the woods with my father, brother and uncles and we would stay in tents and cook over the fire and everything. I think being able to survive in the wilderness is a great skill to have. Once you can do that, camping is a breeze.

I'm a bit older now and bring along a few more comforts of home, like a foam pad to sleep on. lol It's still great to get into the great outdoors.

I would love to go camping with family and/or friends. I just see good scenes about it from movies and TV shows. So, I also want to experience it someday. The safety of the place for camping is a major consideration.

My family has one place in the mountain, a beautiful meadow on 1500metres above sea level. We go there almost every year and we spend the night there .The sky try the night is crystal clear and the stars sparkle all around. The air is clean and fresh. We also love to visits lakes and go on fishing.
I really think that this sort of family trips is perfect for making the family member more close to each other.

I have never been camping before in my life, unfortunately. I would like to try it one day, just for the experience, preferably at a national park.

In my country everybody loves camping, but few seem to take care of gathering the garbage resulted, which I find quite annoying
Otherwise it`s lovely to spend a day faraway from the suffocating cityBigGrin

Yes, that is a shame. These campers will ruin the nature that they appreciate. It is important for campers and nature tourists to pick up after themselves and try to do as little damage to the environment as possible.

I haven't been camping since I was a little girl. I prefer to go in an RV or a cabin. I am not a fan of sleeping on the ground close to all the bugs. I can't handle the thought of waking up to bugs on me. No thanks!

I do greatly enjoy camping. And when my kids are a little older, hope they love to camp too. I like to do some "roughing" it camping. I am not one for going to just cabins or even using Campers. I like to camp outside and use a tent.

We camp in a camper. But we do have a huge fire and we cook all our meals outside. Our camper is just for us to sleep in and shower in. We try to camp every other weekend in the summer.

I always thought camping means sleeping in a tent, peeing in the bushes and eating canned food :P But Angie mentioned camping in a camper... well that's a lot more civilized!

I love camping a lot! Most of my girl friends are grossed out by the idea, but I was always in love with the outdoors :)
Last time I went camping was years ago though... I went with a group of friends, took the train to a random destination in the mountains, carried our own tents and huge backpacks with food supplies and camped 1-2 nights here, 1-2 nights there... visited some nice caves on the way, cooked with open fire, bathed in the river (the very, very cold river!!)... totally worth it! We were only 2 girls though, me and a guy's girlfriend, at least I wasn't alone :P

I have tent camped before but it is a lot better in my eyes to have the camper. I guess a camper is not for everyone, and it is not exactly roughing it, but that is just how I like to camp.

I totally agree!
A camper is like a dream come true for me, but I don't think I could ever afford one :D

There are many people here in Italy who own campers though, during the summer I see them all the time! I even have a neighbor who parks his camper in front of his house.
Each time I see it (I pass by it daily, on my way home) I think "man, this guy's lucky! Also, I wish he didn't occupy this parking space though" :) :) :)

Can I ask, is a camper fit for winter travels as well?
I mean, would you go camping during the winter, even if it snowed a lot and it was really, really cold outside? :) Sleeping in a tent at -20 degrees outside does not sound like fun.

I have always been attracted to the idea of camping but people in my country don't have this kind of tradition. I always enjoy watching movies wihere families go camping. It looks like a great way to get even more closer with your family.

What country is that? I think the appeal of camping is that you pit yourself against nature as you're roughing it. It's nice to unplug.

My camper is equipped with air and heat, so if you really wanted you could camp in the winter. It does get nice and toasty in there when we turn the heater on in the early spring and the fall. I have known of a family that stayed in their camper in the winter while their house was being built.

I went camping in Elberton, Georgia. We stayed in a small cabin with my family. This is a link the the campgrounds that we visited http://www.sunsetridgecampgroundllc.com/ . We had a great time , we enjoyed a nice campfire, there were deer everywhere and we grilled. The only suggestion I have is be very careful of ticks they are often in the woods and they are a serious nuisance.

Unfortunately, the fees mentioned which are comfortable aren`t applied, so you can figure some of those campers don`t even care about what they do
I presume if more legal measures are adopted, it will be possible to transform camping into a profitable activity for both campers and nature
