Both of us have done the Tent, tent camper, Van travel trailer and cabin camping.
Now we camp in our Fifth Wheel and stay in Campgrounds. Stayed at a KOA RV park once, the rest in the bush. We cook over the fire, on the BBQ and Coleman stove

We enjoy the northern lights, the sound of the waves hitting the rocks and bike on trails! We are comfortable and have some amenities that make it nicer. We don't jet away in the winter and travel except in our RV. Affordable and fun! We meet others and chat about road experiences and life.

Oh yes the sunsets too!! Lake Huron at Inverhuron.

I started camping as a little girl when my parents bought my brother the coolest small canvas tent. The flap stayed up with poles and I sat under it like a porch. We played and played in that thing and spent the night in it too. I also made "tents" with blankets over the clothesline. I camped as a Girl Scout starting the end of third grade. We camped in small tents and later in tents with wooden floors at the Girl Scout camp in the Ocala National Forest. We also did some primitive camping and dug our own latreens. We cooked our food on Buddy Burners. My husband and I camped with our two little ones in tents. It rained 100% of the time. We then moved up to a pop up so we could avoid going to bed at 7:00 due to rain. We could cook, play games, and read inside while it poured outside. We cooked outside mostly. Now, we are awaiting delivery of our TT that was supposed to come off the production line today! Yes, we will be camping again. At our age and living in Florida we want to have air and a shower and toilet inside. We will spend a lot of time outside, however. Grilling and smoking on the Big Green Egg, reading, walking, biking, visiting with fellow campers, etc. We might watch a little news or a show now and then, but we will be camping! Those who only like to stay in hotels would call it camping too. Get out and enjoy it!!!

I think for many of us, it might more accurately be called "RV'ing". That's not all bad. Natural scenery. Nearby biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc.

You can get closer to camping by going to remote State and National Forests. No electricity, no pressurized water, dirt roads, etc.

We do a lot of the latter. But I still have my satellite radio, shower, etc. That's close enough to camping for me.

Is it really Camping?

David 01, my childhood was much the same as yours. Boy Scouts was a big part of my life and we were a very active outdoors troop. I continued it up through college and when I got married and had 2 daughters. As a family we were tents campers for many years. As we all got older we got tired of the wet tents and sleeping in the ground so we bought a Pop up. Still get to sleep under canvas. We still do almost everything outside but have a little comfort with beds and a roof over our heads and a little electricity. Our favorite spots tend to be the state parks and more woodsy campgrounds. We still consider it camping!

I do some backpacking and still enjoy it even st 58. There are probably some really hardcore people who would say using a tent isn't camping so its really a subjective thing. I don't consider using our TT really camping, but I enjoy it just the same.

Who cares what other's think a word means. Camping means what you want it to mean. Let them debate, I'll be camping.
