What do you do once camp is set up?

Looking for input on what people do once they get to their site and camp is setup? We have just begun to camp again and are doing so in our 2018 Forester. Once camp is setup, we pull out the chairs and the wine (if it's time:-) and proceed to take in all there is to see. One thing we've noticed in most evenings is that we seem to be the only people outside. Not many people out enjoying nature and the fresh air. Where is everyone? 📺?

No matter what time it is a cold beverage is in order.

Cold glass of sweet iced tea for me. I sit outside if the temperature is under 80. If not, I may go drive around in the truck and look at the campground or nearby areas while the camper A/C gets things cooled down a little bit. That's often necessary in Texas...any time from March to October. Usually November to February is cool enough to sit out-- but not always!

I guess it has been hot out and the AC has seen some hours put on it. Maybe things will be different once we get deeper into the fall
Season.

We usually don't pull in until late evening so once we are set up, it's time to get dinner cooked, cleaned up and then worry about getting DD off to bed. Frequently the first night is a chill out night and earlier bed time after a long work day. The next day behind the real camping. If we get there earlier and aren't too exhausted then we like to have a fire to sit around.

Quick visual inspection of the RV and truck, might wash the bugs off the nose cone then chairs out, sit back with a drink and relax.
