    But I haven't been "real camping" in a few years.  I did, however, attend a folksfest here in Colorado this summer and I camped with about 3000 other folks.  I did do the whole tent thing and could hear the river as I fell asleep, watch meteorite showers with...

    Don't Know Many Local Campers....

    unfortunately the few people i know who go camping don't live near me, so our trips are few & far between. another friend got in trouble, so he'll also be unable to make many (if any) trips this summer. being up in the woods is my favorite thing to do once the nicer weather hits...

    It Is Such A Dying Past Time

    Girls my age look down at it because it is primitive or those that are my age and do "camp" bring air mattresses and boom boxes and all types of junk that overshadow the enjoyment you can get out of the wilderness. I am currently homeless and about to invest in some gear for...

    Rustic

    When I go camping, I want to have a tent, and a fire, and s'mores and hot dogs...I want to be in nature. It's a little cold, but I could do with a nice camping trip tonight. Not too many bugs tonight. Anyone up for a trip into the woods?

    Good Times

    In a tent, in a trailer, hell a sleeping bag unrolled under the stars, the back of a pickup truck or any other way you can think of. Let may watch the stars with no lights around, no Internet distractions, a fire going a few close friends, my dog off exploring. That's the good...

    Potatoes In The Campfire, Well Done.

    Mine and my sister's family were camping together, and my sister and I put foil-wrapped potatoes in the coals. Periodically we would check them with a fork, to see if they were done, but they didn't seem to be getting done. By the time everything else was eaten, I realized...
