I have been an outdoors sort of guy my entire life.
It was mostly due to my dad.
He was an avid hunter plus woodsman. Myself, I was never too keen on the hunting section but I appreciated getting outside with my seasoned man. And this wasn’t any sort of vehicle camping. With left the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C comfort of house in order to get back to what nature provides for us. Heat was a campfire when it was freezing plus cooling came from a mountain stream in the summer. It was some of the best times of my life. Sadly, I am the only a single in my immediate family who is genuinely into camping. My fiance had to be dragged kicking plus screaming the first time I took her camping. And that was to a fully furnished campsite in a cabin. But, she was a nice athletic activity plus I know she found some value in the experience. Once the youngsters came along, I would only get to leave the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C comfort of the house for camping with my buddies. So this year, I put it on the calendar. The people I was with and I were going camping as a family. I wouldn’t force a deep woods experience on them. However, every one of us would stay in a tent, in the woods with bathrooms fairly near by. It’s basically vehicle camping. It was like trying to dynamite my children from the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C comforts of home. However, they figured out I was serious plus fell in with the plan. The first night, I was surprised to find a portable heating plan packed away in the car. I let it slide.
