    This is the view that I woke up to this morning.

    I really love to go camping. Nothing like it. The lake was perfect for kayaking also. Hated to come home.

    I keep overpacking. I think I might need the

    things I take and sometimes I do.

    Appalachian Trail Group (segment)

    Yes i actually love to go camping with my family

    and some friends too. We all have a great time camping in the woods and the wilderness. We have a few mountain ranges here. It is a wonderful experience for the kids and adults. I have been to nudist campsites years ago but not recently. I am a nudist and love being naked...

    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...

    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...

    I'm not really looking forward to it tomorrow.

    I get anxiety if I don't have a spot reserved in a campground. I'm also not looking forward to camping with extended family whom make it very difficult to relax because they have lots of drama and their friends show up and eat our food while their kids trash the camp. Maybe it...

    National Parks

    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...

    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...

    I used to go with my dad

    and family all the time. it was some of the happiest times. no tv, phones, or computers. just talking and sharing and just being together. Plus it was outside and so much fun. I wish I could go back in time and relive those moments

    It's official, I'm on vacation.

    Camper is all loaded. Seven days I'll be near water in the wilderness. I'm so ready for campfires, food, music, fishing and swimming. Oh and of course some, s'mores. ⛵️🏊🍺🍔👙

    Camping is my other half.

    ..Being up in the mountains, breathing in that fresh and crisp morning air. Seeing the sun slice through the trees and hearing the creek gurgle nearby. Wonderful! My family used to go every weekend...I miss that.

    I've been a camper ever

    since I can remember. My Ex has all of the camping gear, so I decided I'm going to start out fresh with my own supplies. I'm having a blast researching tents and reviewing tips for sole campers. My core group of girlfriends don't like to run, bike or camp. I'm not going to stay...

    Nothing better then being out in the woods on a

    summer's night. Looking at the stars, throwing on a pair of shorts, having a few drinks, and chatting about life.

    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?

    Some of the friendliest people I've met have

    been fellow campers, but I haven't been camping for over a year and I miss it so much. Now that it's autumn, I think it's the best season to hike and enjoy the stars and campfires. I love the smell of smoke in my hair and hearing the kids laugh and play after dark. I enjoy...

    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...
