Only use the TV-DVD when it's raining, bathroom at night or when it's raining depending on if CG keeps theirs clean, camping trip usually consists of biking, hiking, kayaking outdoor stuff, pretty much used the TT to sleep in...but it does give you the conviences if needed.

We "camp" and "travel". If we're camping we cook all our meals on the fire, go fishing, hiking, swimming, and stay outside most of the day and hang out with friends and family. If we're traveling we eat in resturants, go sight seeing, and spend most of the day away from the cg. Both are great. Best part is no bed bugs.

When my kids (who are grown and have their own kids) tease me about the comfort of my Forester I simply say, “I go rv’ing not camping and there is a significant difference”.

What we do, I call "glamping!". As rough as I like to get is a campground with dirt roads and pads and only electric hookups and maybe minimal TV signal. I want my a/c and the other nice things. I prefer a nice RV resort. I got to relax, and camp with friends and take some side trips.

The definition of camping has been constantly changing since the advent of the automobile which made camping as a recreational activity popular and accessible to average folks.

Glamping = glamorous camping. I am not glamorous - I am the opposite of glamorous.

I am not sure that Glamping is the right term but it is hard to consider it camping with central air, 3 dvd players, microwave and recliner. The way I want to go!

By the way, great idea for a new forum category!

I am a campground host most of the time. Therefore I am a camper most of the time.
"Full Timer" with "Boon Docking" in the desert southwest being my drug of choice. Well, that and really cold beer.

We do both! If we're traveling (like we did this year to Glacier, Yellowstone and Rushmore), we don't "camp" as much as sleep in the MH. We're gone most of the day anyway so don't even bother with dragging chairs out and setting up camp. Most of my cooking is done in the microwave, stove top or crock pot. We eat inside, run the A/C if needed and watch TV in the evenings if we have it. We still prefer campgrounds in national parks or state parks over the "RV Resorts" and other assorted parking lot sites.

If we're camping then no holds barred! Chairs, awning, canopy, firewood, dutch oven, tripod, charcoal, rug, tables get set up and I do most of the cooking in my dutch oven or on the tripod. Fires are a must in the evenings no matter what the temp.

While on this last trip, we "camped" a few nights along the way to recharge our batteries (not the MH's). Relaxing in camp in the evenings around a fire with adult beverages is priceless. We met several interesting people along the way too.

To each their own!
