When the kids were young, we camped quite a lot. In the years since they've been gone from under our roof we've camped very little. But we've travelled extensively with various campers every summer. Have snowbirded since late 1994. We have a 31 ft trailer for that. Since we bought our Egg Camper in the spring we've been on a 5150 mile trip with it, have been camping three times and are going camping today after I get my arm stabbed for an A1c test. My wife wasn't sure we should buy the E.C. but she loves it. Her idea to go today and her idea on where to go. BTW, we hate motels.

I camp because my husband liked to back pack and I told him "no way!" The only way I was going "out" was if I had a potty and a comfortable bed. So twenty three years ago he bought me a trailer and we have RVed ever since.

Now it's what Donna said! Plus we love going to rallies and meeting like minded folks!

We use our Egg as our mobile vacation home so we can afford to go where we want, when we want, and see, eat, and do pretty much what we want.

We love the simplicity of camping and campfire cooking. We thoroughly enjoy both the experience of solitude in the woods, and the fellowship of our many camping friends when we camp together.

Right now rallies are our only venues.

We started camping as a road trip alternative to motels. Those establishments represented the Three Bears Home to us playing the role of Goldilocks. Too Hot, Too Cold, Too Hard, Too Soft.

The Fiber Stream is just right.

We really should try to get together for some camping after the honey do lists are closer to caught up!

Even though my home looks over acres and acres of wild land, it's wonderful to get away. I've always loved the outdoors. I have mostly oaks trees around my home so going further up hill into the conifers is wonderful.

I love to travel and having my little Marshmallow allows me to do so with ease, as I travel with my dog. I love the comfort of sleeping in my own bed as well. I've never liked motel/hotels, at all.

I gave up backpacking and sleeping on the ground when I purchased my trailer.

I love meeting people and what better people than campers. Especially ones that give you fish.

Yes sireee....sorry I didn't have my camera so I can't show you the 3 big fish that I acquired. All I did was said, "Hey, maybe I'd better go buy a fishing license" That brought the fellow over asking if I liked fished.

Evidently, he fishes but no one in his family likes fish. Anyway, what did I say to him....."so when is your next fishing trip???"

Why do we camp?
To see new and different places......vistas to behold.

To be out in nature......to interact with nature if only slightly.

To have a place to stay as we travel.....to be able to frugally travel more, farther & still be at home.

To enjoy being with family.....to get to know each other better.

To add to ones experiences....to see our world....more up close & personal.

For exercise....body & mind.

For birdwatching & wildlife viewing.

For fun....entertainment....finding joy.

For edification....learn more about our state, country, people.

For finding a cool spot away from the heat.

For testing ones creativity & ingenuity.....to be able to live outside of the box.

For living without bells.....without time restraints.

To do these things in comfort.

Joy A,
Your story about the fish, reminded me when we were doing an overnight at Heron Lake State Park in Northern New Mexico (1997) on our way home from a long trip to Canada. My son was out riding his Mt. Bike, he returns with a very large trout. A man asked him if he'd like it. We went to clean it and it was already cleaned. We had a very delicious supper that evening.

When I retired I promised myself there would be no schedules to live by and no heavy planning. The camper allows me to get further away and still be comfortable in the middle of nowhere.
I can stop or stay just about anywhere that suits me, I like meeting new people, then there is the adventure just as I remember the book Tom Sawyer.

Now I can live it.

Thumbs up

I do dog agility, and this year with the Scamp has been wonderful being able to stay on-site at competitions and have my little home away from home for me and my pup. I'll never go back to hotels or a tent if I can help it! This is much more relaxing and I enjoy the after-hours scene with the other rv agility folks, too.

We don't go camping to 'rough it' we go camping to 'smooth it'
