Nothing says glamour more than having to empty and rinse away a week's worth of BMs.

That covers it except cooking on an open fire and washing in a cold stream (if available) if not, stinking for days....

Been there and did that.

Glamping

This is 'Glamping' in the 1950's.

We both paid our dues in Scouting ... Winter camping in a tent was a challenge and an accomplishment.

Nowadays, four times the age we were then ... a nice mattress and a bathroom are completely acceptable.

Anyone who has a need to disagree, is going to have to submit a T.P.S. Report, NOTARIZED BY THEIR DW, indicating that roughing it is ... "better."

I 'fondly' remember the canvas tents and the soggy sleeping bags and always smelling like wood smoke. great perfume... When I was an Eagle, I graduated to a Eureka Timberline and a Kelty backpack and a real down bag. I still smelled like wood smoke however...

I still have the Kelty. I use the pack frame to haul out meat on hunts. The Eureka succumbed to rot a long time ago and I graduated in the sleeping bag department too. I now own a KUIU down mummy I take on hunting trips.

I still like to cook on an open fire but I've learned that dry wood makes almost no smoke...lol

Hunting to me is staying in a provided lodge or base camp and let my paid guides do the cooking.

Don't think I'll ever succumb to all out 'glamping'. I can stay home for that.

Isn't that a vintage Fleetwood on the cover? Didn't they have the 'Cadillac' wings?

Glamping is just alright with me!

Since my wife will not go camping, we glamp. I haven't camped a day in the last 2 years, but will average 45 days a year glamping. Who's to complain? It keeps us going.

As a Scout leader whose Eagle Scout ages out in Feb I feel I have done my time camping. Hot, Cold, Rain, Snow in a small tent in the woods, I can still do it but I would rather sleep on a nice, comfortable bed.

The DW does not like tent camping. The TT is so I can make up the lost weekends she and I missed while the boys and I camped. But... my daughter wants to join the Crew next year so I will be at it again but will still make time for my DW and go glamping in the "big tent" on wheels.
