    I was/ am a little embarrassed... found myself “retiring” at 9:30 last weekend lol! I guess it doesn’t help that it’s dark at 6:00, Lexie is whining to go in at 8:00 and I’ve likely had plenty of barley pop.... [:)C]

    I think a big focus for those are tailgaters. Sports games, Jimmy Buffett concerts, Nascar, etc. For many camping is a side benefit of the RV or trailer, and they take the mindset of tailgating with them to the campground.

    Brother-In-Law (use to buy season tickets for college football) says he knows of big camper rig guys that drive over 100 miles to the stadium the day before the game and set up, "tailgate" all day, and watch the game on the camper big screen. The next day they drive over 100 miles back home. Makes no sense to me.

    It used to be on the weekends everyone would party hard on Friday night. Then they would spend the next day in the sun swimming, skiing, fishing, etc. and be worn out on Saturday evening. The last couple years that doesn't seem to be happening as much.

    You guys would hate the my LW I have to wear those movie star blinders to sleep at night. She is deathly afraid of the dark. and sleeps with 2 night lights on in our room. In the beginning I thought she just want to see my beautiful face but that was wrong. When she lets Ole nasty out for her last head call at night she turns all the lights on in the back yard. I told her Nasty likes privacy when she goes out. She said that Nasty was afraid of the dark too. Lord please help me. This same woman warms the dogs scraps in the microwave. What can I say? She will go camping anytime and don't complain about anything.

    I am afraid all the new campers are being bought as fall back positions for when the pandemic gets out of hand.
