Maybe I am a little off, but I like people watching. From the guy who pulled up on his bike, with his furry friends goggled eyes hanging out of top of his carrier, to the 2 couples from iceland. Man, did those Icelanders drink.

I'll guess they had plenty of ice for the drinks.

Nope, we always did the same. People interest me. It especially interested me in how people camped. What they did and had. Not that I was ever envious, but sometimes I learned cool things. Sometimes I couldn't why someone would do what they were doing. Part of the fun for me.

My camping mostly started as backpacking back in the mid ‘70’s and I remember seeing new nice rigs at the time and saying something like “that’s not camping” but over the years our camping needs have changed and our campers have gotten larger with more “creature features”. No matter what our camping choice, most people are still having a good time and very receptive to meeting new friends. This is why we like to camp.

My Grandpa was the baggage dept. manager at a NY Central RR terminal. One year a girl scout group came thru and forgot one of their tents. It went to "lost and found". After a year it was to be thrown out, so he gave it to me.

At age 7 I camped in the back yard. I got bullied because it was a "Girlie" tent.....LOL. When I got older, Dad and I went fishing and stayed overnight at the Lake's edge.

In college my buddies and I used it. I imagine the girl scout headmaster would not have approved of all the beer, though.

When I got married, we camped in a brand new nylon tent. My boys loved camping.

Now, the kids are gone and we have a Jayco. The wife likes the AC, microwave and flat screen TV.

The wife says no more tents. But, this is not camping, I say. Too many amenities. But, don't ask ME to go tenting any more either.......LOL.

I've camped with nothing but the stars and on a yacht and loved each experience.

I did too. OK, wasn't a yacht. It was my last hurrah between college and starting my first Engineering job. A 3 day weekend on the Erie Canal.

Then it rained. It was a little boat and no bilge pump.

On the way back we pulled a drowning kid out of the water. He tried to swim from one shore to another.

Ahhh, the memories.

Camping on a Yacht is not camping. No offense but my camping started with a Coleman sleeping bag in the Rockies in the 50s with temps to 0 at best. It snowed on us a few times and trout in a cold mountain stream caught and cooked for breakfast were the norm. Deer/elk hunting in the snow, more cold stream fishing and campfires.



Later, camping on a houseboat on Lake Powell with nothing but the stars and watching the satellites pass over. Some Arizona mountain camping with a small tent, a campfire to cook eggs and bacon in the morning and an old perk coffee pot.



Times have made the sleeping better with 5th wheels and later a class C but it is still in the mountains, temps down to 0 at best and piles of blankets to stay warm before finally turning on the heat.



The original theme of this was your camping is your camping but fact is camping has changed and people are more rude, and surly. They have no idea of common sense or courtesy when camped near others. It is pretty much the same as flying or driving. People are rude, creeps with no common sense or reality. Sorry but fact is fact.

BTW I have photos of my grand parents camping outside of Colorado Springs in 1913. A different world. They were Colorado pioneers who blazed trails in that part of the country.

I too started in the '50s with family trips through the Northwest and Canada. A heavy canvas tent, or just under the stars, with a campfire for cooking and hauling water from the creek or river. Then backpacking the Sierras in the '60s and sleeping under the stars.


Now in my 70s I do love the amenities of my Jayco, but I gotta admit I do miss the stars. :-)

Yup, pretty much true and the evolving ideas of camping are probably quite universal. We went from primitive tent wilderness to, a few years ago, this hybrid, sometimes parked between two behemoth busses at a crammed KOA. Still good, in a different way. Camping is what you make of it.
