I have never once liked camping, even though I did a lot of it when I was growing up. My parents insisted that I had to go camping when they went, even if I didn’t quite enjoy it. It was always muggy, with biting bugs the entire time we were there. If you wore the smelly bug repellent, it helped, however even your food tastes exactly like it smelled. I also didn’t love how you always smelled just like smoke from the fire. But If you wanted to be someplace warm as well as dry, you had to be by the campfire. I always prayed for immense thunderstorms or a blizzard that would make my parents take us home. I really didn’t care what it was as long as I could get to a shower, as well as my air conditioning. I couldn’t imagine why anyone really chose to do this on purpose. As I got older, I earned the right to say no to going camping. I found out that I liked camping, however only under my conditions. I wanted to have a hotel by mountainside, as well as a good Heating and Air Conditioning system inside the room. I even settled for a good Heating and Air Conditioning system inside of a camper that had a shower with running water. I really wasn’t hard to please, however I didn’t want to be bit up by bugs, or to sleep in damp sleeping bags on the ground. I really didn’t want to smell like wood smoke either. Maybe I am picky and prissy, as my sister called me, either way, I am also warm and dry.
