I have a question for the folks here regarding what life maybe for you- you thoughts and feelings- when you have a spouse (DW or DH) that just doesn't share the same level of interest in camping and isn't as motivated to go long or short distances to enjoy the splendors of nature in your pup. I struggle from time to time thinking about wanting to go camping at least once or twice a month (working around my weekend schedule) only to get shot down when I present my plans to the DW later. We've been camping once this year together, and I did one solo trip with other friends on a canoe trip. Granted we were saving funds for our anniversary trip and agreed to hold off from camping until we got back. Now were back and I can't make plans to camp- because she's not really interested. All I do is stare at the pup and dream or relish in other pup members' experiences and camp stories. To go a step further, I know that we will never go past state lines to camp. I have mental plans to camp in Moab, the Smokies, the Grand Canyon, a coastline...but...I'm only deluding myself. Its hard enough just trying to get her to go an hour from the house. As I read about other members here that camp without their spouses from time to time, how do you approach the "I'll just go by myself" operation? And does that create hostility or repercussions at home with the spouse? To be frank- I am annoyed by her lack of interest only because she used to own a pup before we knew each other, and she found and negotiated the deal on the one we have now! There are lots of "if's, and's, or but's" to this situation and I don't want to go into specific details. Just looking for any experiences with this situation and how it makes you feel when you can't camp, your spouse just ain't into it, and you might create a problem between you and your spouse if you want to camp without them. Any and all replies/ideas/experiences/advice/blatant trickery welcome.
