I Want To Go Camping

I haven’t been camping since I was a little kid. Every summer the extended fam & I would spend a few weekends camping on the beach.

Us kids would run around, swim, make what we called sand castles that were just mounds of sand, fight off dragons (I don’t know what all of us did), & we had fun being kids. We were not concerned with the adults. Life was simple & fun.

Since being forced to adult I’ve acquired a few favorite things. A few of them being my fan when I sleep, the amazing cloud like bed that forms to my every curve, my (almost constant) need for fresh filtered water, & my love for sangria, just to name a few.

If you’ve never been camping before a few of my favorite things would be a little hard to make happen. This saddens me though because I think it would be really fun to do. So, if I had it my way this my friends is how I would camp.

    I need those s’more baskets every day, not just when camping. 🙂

    I also grew up camping, in the woods, as a child and these were my favorite memories. I definitely think the pocket shower and smore baskets are a must for camping anywhere.

    I miss camping so much! With so many parks and wilderness areas around me you would think I would have gone since moving away from home, but no. 🙁 Maybe I will have to round up a group of friends and commit to going together this summer!

    I love camping and the outdoors.
    Been trying to go for a month. I didn’t get to do it much as a kid.
    Been sick so had to wait. It’s got to be just about time.

    You and me girl! Let’s go GLAMPING. I’m with you – I like the IDEA of camping much more than the actual reality of it. I will go sometimes if I can be in a cabin or a camping trailer, but sleeping in a tent, not going to happen. I went on a campout with my Scouts this Spring and even though I did get to sleep in a cabin (a freezing one with VERY thin walls), I ended up sharing a port-a-potty with about 50 guys – ugh! And no running water. That’s dangerously close to roughing it in my book.
