Last week’s topic: Guilty pleasures
I loooove camping!! Ever since I was little, my parents have been taking me to a little campground called Poor Farmer’s about a half hour from our house, out in the country. The past couple of summers, they’ve been going up from Thursday to Monday every single week. We’ve had campers as long as I’ve been alive! The first one we had was tiny, and to tell you the truth I barely remember it because I was still very young. Then, up until 2007, we had a 31′ Coachmen CSX. I loved it so much! I had my own bedroom with bunk beds and my own little bathroom, so it was almost like staying in a hotel any time we went camping.
Sadly, my parents sold that trailer in favor of a 39.5′ Coachmen Wyoming 5th wheel, their “retirement trailer” as they call it. I hate it, but I think I’m still holding a grudge over the fact that I no longer have a room. If I do camp in the trailer with them, I have to sleep on the horridly uncomfortable couch. It is really nice, though:
I haven’t been able to camp much in the last few years because I was always working weekends, so not having a room didn’t matter much anyway. The few times I was able to go, I just slept in my tent!
It’s nice and roomy. I enjoy sleeping in it when it’s warm enough!
Now, my schedule has changed and I only work Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. So I’ll definitely be able to camp more this summer, I can’t wait! It’s SO peaceful up there…great opportunity to read a book and relax ;)
As far as real camping, I’ve never done that. I’ve only ever camped where there was immediate access to a bathroom and shower if I wanted it. I’ve never camped away from civilization, with zero technology, but I would like to try someday!
Your turn! Make your own post telling everyone about camping and link up :)
