Other Camping

In addition to RV camping I tent camp and backpack with the Boy Scouts. Wondered if anyone else here camps without their rv's.

Yup. Haven't done much here in Ontario, but we will be back into it once we move out west. There's plenty of trek-in/bike-in/walk-in sites all around the new place. The two youngest kids enjoy the sense of being 'away-from-it-all', even if it means spending time in the tent. After all, that's really what camping is, isn't it?

There's one place called the Sooke Potholes - it'll be about a 50km bike ride on well groomed, flat trail (Galloping Goose Trail) that ends at a wonderful campsite. It's a full day of biking, ending with a dip in a beautiful river, a camp-made meal and tonnes of laughter. Of course, after a day of biking, swimming and goofing around, by the time you have to crawl into the tent you're so tired you have no idea how uncomfortable it all is.....

We used to always tent camp , we have 3 kids , the first 2 are 19 and 21 , the last one is 8 . The first 2 always tent camped , they may have been in our first pop up once or twice , with the oldest now is in the Navy , the other collage and really cant find time to come with us .
When we go 'camping' now many mornings while having coffee I laugh and tell our youngest how good she has it , no 2 am hikes to the bath house , a/c , heat on chilly nights , running hot and cold water ... the list goes on .If I were to bring up the idea to my wife about sleeping in a tent now she would be off to the lawyer .
When our son comes home from over seas in a month we are all meeting him at Disney World so all of us can see how spoiled our Jayco has made us .

Not no mo'!!!! No way LOL! I'm pretty comfortable with being comfortable in my new Jayco (but then again our kids are grown and we don't do boy/girls scouts anymore)

Come on now, folks, tent campin' with young grandkids is a rite of passage! Do we really want our TV watchin', electronic game playin', cell phone usin', social networkin', computer nerdy, air conditionin' dependent grandchildren to miss out on the joys of tent campin'? Now I ain't sayin' we have to take them tent campin' in the blazing heat of a Texas summer, no siree. But surely we can still manage a campin' trip in the fall or spring. If we don't expose them to the simple joys of communin' with nature without the distractions of "modern" life, who is gonna do it--probably not their parents and other people younger than us because they are consumed by electronic addiction, too.

I'm just sayin' . . . .

I use to hike into the back country, tent camp, etc all the time but alas, age and Mother Nature have joined forces to put a stop to such treks. My youngest son does camp with the scouts as he's one of the leaders in the troop his son is a member of. Bottom line, I'm an RV'er now though I haven't forgotten the tricks of the trade when it comes to tenting it and such.

By the way, my hat goes off to those that still venture out and "rough it" as many of us did in our youths.

I'll just watch from the Jayco. I grew-up tenting with No Water or potty we learned to ruff it. I also did my share of camping with Uncle Sam in a forien country too. Tent campers with the kids years ago, and Now the Designer. I stay with the Designer too. The old back can't take the hard ground.
