I pretty much took the same path, started out tent camping and on a motorcycle way way back. Progressed through the years and about 15 years ago I figured, well I might as do this full time. Can't think of any other way of living that provides so much enjoyment. Met alot of great people over the years, and to this day, I still think that the people that go camping are great.
For all the things that have changed over the years, there is still lots of stuff that remains the same.
Campfires, swimming, fishing, bike rides, bugs, bbqing, meeting new neighbours, kids and thier new friends.
There's a method to the madness, disturb the method and the madness begins.
