So, you don’t like camping.

“It’s too uncomfortable. I can’t get to sleep.”

“It’s so boring. Nothing to see, nothing to do.”

“I don’t like camp food.”

“It’s too much work. When I go on vacation, I just want to relax.”

It’s true- I have camping in my blood. I’m lucky to have found a cute trailer that makes things easier. I realize it’s not for everyone. But for me, it’s a way to escape from everyday life, see and do things I don’t normally see or do, challenge myself with interesting (and delicious) meals, and soak in all of the glorious outdoors.

So when people tell me they don’t like camping, I shrug.

Maybe you’re doing it wrong.

  1. I whole-heartedly agree with Kate. The 9th photo, though, is just breath-taking. Which lake?

    Nah, I don’t need comforts. A tent, a bag, and a fire is all I need (except when in bear country, in which case I might get a lodge). Most times we just do in the backyard by the creek. Judging from your photos, I might have to step up my game a bit and get a little comfy! That just rocks. Happy 4th, Usual Bliss. Looks like you had a fab recharge.

  2. omg….breathtaking pics. I was just going to ask, where in the heck you went. Then I see your prior response…Montana! Jealous! Can we trade for a while..you can drop me at the lake, and you can take my place in school. Deal? Can’t wait for the recap!

  3. We went tenting with two double wide tents and a ton of tarps with pouring down rain…asked Yogi Bear Campground Owner for a shovel and dug a trench around us kids rode bikes through our tent area and we had a dry fire…made spaghetti and pork chops and steaks with trimmings and veggies for dinner with coffee going 24 hrs…and bacon and pancakes for breakfast… six kids with us and a week of it rained entire time still had a blast… all in how you set your mind to it…

    • I can’t count the number of camp trips with my family growing up when it rained. One big tent, with holes in it that we stopped up with plastic baggies, I think. Camp breakfasts are always so good. Fond memories!!

      • Other campers who were flooded out came under ours and set up camp and we had a great time…is how we ended up with six children lol I had cooked ahead and froze so as food thawed I cooked and we never had to do ice runs lol…
