This is my opinion. I will try to keep it short. I am now 66 yrs old. How this happened I do not know. It really pisses me off. I was a boy scout. Learned to camp , dig for food , one match to light a fire, all the man stuff a kid could dream of. I got married to a really young beautiful girl who loved camping. We were the same age. We camped a lot.I was a boy scout snob. Open fire cooking, pee in the woods ,tent for shelter, great to be young. Only wienies camp in a popup. Travel trailer ? are you serious. Fast forward to four kids and years of boy scout camping I was informed that if this camping life style was to continue an off ground, keep dry in rain, not cramped in a small tent with six people and a river in the middle of the tent ,sleep in wet bags, get up early with 4 crabby kids and a spouse you love who now you do not (temporary situation ) breakfast in the rain or cold, wet wood, and the most drastic alternative... a trip to wal-mart. Got a popup , I was all in. Ok, boy scout snob no more. Now I was a popup snob. How could you camp in a tt , are you serious. Still have my popup, Love my popup , can not imagine anything else. Did you know a popup can have every amenity a tt can? I am a hop skip and a jump from a tt. I have been informed this is next. I am glad of it. Want to enjoy my next adventure which is my grand kids. Like has been said , camping is what you make it. I will no longer judge others. Still dont understand the big rig plug in mentality unless you are old. God bless you. ( ok I judge ) Not against the rigs. I will be in one eventually. Had several trips ruined by generators and boom boom at night from neighbors watching movies. I have learned, Bottom line, If I dont like it I do not go to that place. To each his own. I have friends who love that stuff, I do not. I love the big rigs in fall because they are all on the electric side of the state park I go to. I have the whole half of the campground to myself.
