It's been Weezer's experience, that the first one to get nekkid is the LAST person you wanna see nekkid.

For my 40th B-day I booked myself on a Caribbean cruise....ex wasn't in to cruises so I took my hairdresser along. San Marteen has a nude beach. Walked on to the beach and there was a tiki bar. The first person I saw was a dude hanging all over a bar stool. Yes, I said "hanging all over". No buns to it, those were entire loaves. Thankfully his back was to us....made a 90* turn to the right....headed for better scenery.

DH and I do a combination of all the above. As a child my parents took us kids tent camping all *over* the lower 48...only 2 states we didn't camp in; CA and NY.

Our kids are all grown and off doing their own thing, scattered to the four winds due to careers, etc. DH and I camp to get away from the routine here at home. We have a couple that we call "our family by choice" rather than "family by blood" that we camp with often. It's that sort of friendship that just clicks into perfect place from the git-go. When we camp with them we'll often do day trips. Example: camped at an RV resort for T-giving in Hot Springs, Arkansas. We did a day trip up to Petit Jean Mountain. It's been at least 20 years since I've been there. Lots of changes, to be sure. Ate T-giving lunch at the lodge up on top of the mountain.

Sometimes DH and I camp just by ourselves. We may hang out at the site all day, and I'll do lots of walks with Fred...hit a few hiking trails. I wasn't sure DH was going to take to RVing as he's such a Type A personality...two speeds; 1K MPH and sound asleep. Did my heart a lot of good the first time I caught him napping in the La Z Boy. For those trips we'll just go to a state park that's about 30 minutes away.

We've done a group camp with wmtire and his geo caching friends, even did a couple of "hunts"....GREAT folks, great time around a huge fire, with lots of stories being told.

We've taken one long trip so far...up to Pigeon Forge, TN for 10 days total. For that trip our V-Lite was pretty much base camp...a couple of down time days with a fire, adult beverages and visiting with fellow campers, but mostly day tripping, even over in to Cherokee, NC, took in a couple of dinner shows, etc. One day we just headed out driving, found a ridge line in the mountains above the RV park and drove it until it took us back down MILES away from where we started, fired up the GPS and leisurely found our way back.

For us it's not about adhering to a schedule. Whatever happens, happens. It's about down time to recharge our batteries. Yes we have our cell phones, but we're selective with which calls we accept. It's US TIME, and breaking our daily routine.

We've pledged to prevent this camping thing from becoming "work" or a "chore".

I guess it's kinda like the way I describe being empty nesters: We do what we want, when we want, IF we want.

I bought my A-frame because it fits the type of camping I've been doing recently. I used to go with my kids but they are (almost) out of the house. So now I go with a hiking group that mostly visits state parks. We do a lot of up and at 'em camping, particularly getting up on Sunday and driving to a trial head.

I needed a camper that can be put in almost any camp site and is fast to set up but more importantly is fast to strike. My A-frame fits the requirements better than any other camper I've seen that can still be kept at my home.

I would hate to sit on a bar stool (or any chair) that had been previously sat on by a naked person. BTW, Europeans are way too comfortable with how their bodies look.

We refer to our camper as a portable hotel room with benefits and like you we like to see nature when we go. We don't go out for dinner unless we are out to see local attractions like when we went to Gettysburg. Shopping is usually only if we need something while camping. Truthfully any time camping is a good time. The idea of going once in a while with a big group and doing activities sounds like it could be fun but wouldn't want to do it all the while. 4 day trips are ok but like the week long trips better. We like state parks more than the other campgrounds, you meet all kinds of different people there, Koa's are ok when your going to see attractions but sites are too close for long stays.
