I'm a creature comforts girl, and cannot imagine a fate worse than having to hike for fun. I'm not a "typical" camper, but I do like to camp. I just have to bring along enough to keep me happy. I load up some movies on the iPad, I load a bunch of books on the Kindle (preloading them makes sure I don't need wifi), I bring a zero-gravity chair and have a screen room for the awning and AC on the camper. Hubby can outdoors himself to pieces, and I can enjoy MY version of quiet relaxation. Is it everyone's version of quiet or camping or fun? Nope. But, it's mine and makes me happy. So, hopefully he will find HIS version of camping and enjoy it. Best of luck!
