I grew up in the wilderness of Virginia. Slept out in the woods many-a-nights under the stars. Sometime took a tent and built a campfire and cooked fish from the river. Later, dug my own catholes while "camping" in the Marines. Many more nights in 1/2 of a "Shelter Half" (occupied by another Marine with the other half). Many months "camping" in Iraq. Now that I am retired and can afford more luxuries, I don't mind a bit that I can tow my camper with toilet, bed, fridge, heat, a/c, tv, etc. and enjoy the outdoors with my wife and two kids. One day, I would like to show the kiddos what camping is like in a tent with a campfire, but for now, they love the 5th wheel and all they fun we have hiking, traveling, Jellystone, etc. Oh, yeah, the DW thinks that anything else, besides the TT/5er, is too uncomfortable to be enjoyable.
