The great outdoors.
Reconnecting with nature.
The feeling of the ground beneath your feet. Sleeping beneath a clear night sky. Silence. Peace….no air conditioning. Hi there. If all of that sounds appealing to you, let’s not make plans. I have to tell you- and I know it’s a very unpopular opinion- I really don’t care at all for or about camping. I get the appeal, I listed them all above. I just don’t understand why, for some folks, it’s worth giving up the miracle technology of climate control. I rely so heavily on climate control and I just cannot imagine wanting- on purpose- to leave heating and air conditioning behind to go sleep outside. If outside is so great, why do we have inside? I’m just saying. I know I’m going to get a lot of comments talking to me about how there are more important things than climate control and, while I believe that you believe that, I humbly disagree. In my opinion, there are very few things that are more important- on a material level- than climate control. Reconnecting with nature can be done on a hike. I can nap in a hammock. Why do I have to go through days and weeks of torture to appreciate these things when I can appreciate them with my lovely HVAC system just a short trek away? Maybe you completely disagree with me. If so, please explain why camping is better than air conditioning. Please. I’ve heard a lot of people say the same thing and I just really don’t get it. I love my climate control. I’m willing to be convinced differently, just know that I’m skeptical.
