  • Well when we do go, we go with my in-laws. They have a big camper. It's not a 5th wheel, but like one size lower. My FIL just brought a brand new truck that's much better for hauling it and he's happy, LOL. Honestly though, I don't like camping at all. It's not an enjoyable experience for me.

  • Yes, I LOVE camping! I grew up camping in a camping trailer, but these days I use a tent. Our family also loves yurts. (I inevitably get asked, "What the bleep is a yurt?!" so here, LOL: http://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/PARKS/rustic.shtml#RUSTIC_YURTS ) Camping still makes me feel like a kid; I love eating off of our cheap plastic dishes, cooking ridiculously easy meals like chili and hot dogs, swimming, reading, going for walks, riding bikes, etc. I also love turning the cell phone OFF!

  • We went once this summer. And we have a tent...a huge one (fits 10 adults--we have 5 kids). We were traveling so we were only at the campsite overnight. We're hoping to do some more camping next summer but closer to home and then in a couple years when our youngest (right now he's 8 weeks and was 3 weeks when we camped) is a little older to plan a camping trip to Yellowstone.

  • a tent and a backpack....we go backwoods hiking, sometimes we'll take the canoe and portage from one lake to the next....but main idea is to just keep on exploring....

  • Love camping. We tent for now, but I'd love in the next few years to get a pop-up tent trailer. Nothing like sitting around the campfire roasting some marshmallows, eating Spitz, kicking back with a good book - just getting away and relaxing.

  • We are trying to get into camping. We just bought a tent last week & camped in our backyard for fun.. But I cant wait until we can afford all the "stuff" to actually go somewhere..

  • We love camping here! We have a hybrid travel trailer, which is basically a travel trailer with tent ends for the beds. It's kind of like a luxury pop-up camper, but with less work involved in setting it up. We love county fairs, so often camp near a county fair. Other things we do are to read, bike, hike or walk the dogs. Sometimes we particpate in campground activities, but usually we just hang out at our site & relax by the fire.

  • aliceryannesmom I looked up a YURT that looks fun I would do that. I used to go camping as a kid and I was soooo bored I grew up hating it. Then I got married and my ex dh wanted to go well I got stuck with the little kids while he was out having fun so then I really hated it Now with my dh we don't go he has no interest and I have no interest but we did do Lake of the Woods and rented a cabin WAY fun!
