You're as qualified as anyone to weigh in on this topic... since no heavy boulders will be moved by this discussion... no final consensus will be reached... very few will change their camping/RVing/"going to the lake"/"going to the woods", etc. process.

Not going is not camping! Now where did I hear that?

I started this blog post yesterday and in less than 24 hours 53 folks have commented. After reading them all, We all have one thing in common. We camp because we love it. It doesn't matter what we call it. Whether camping gives us a chance to spend time as a family (which we don't do at home) or socialize with old and new friends, it is an experience to be cherished, even if for a weekend at a time. I know that my campground opens up on April 15th, and I will be there with a cold beer and a warm fire, awaiting the arrival of my fellow seasonal friends. I once again look forward to smell of bacon cooking. What is it about an early morning walk with a cup of Joe, and the smell of smoke and bacon? It doesn't get any better than this does it? Enjoy the season my friends and be safe!

25 plus years ago, I used to say the same thing about my parents. You are not camping in a 40 foot trailer with your sewing machine and computer(way before laptops).
Wish my mom was still around so she could see i turned out like her. She was smart.
