My spouse, Todd, and I have made a family tradition to go camping at least once a year.
My wonderful friend and I started this tradition the year that my pal and I were married.
Back then, my pal and I chose to go camping in a tent. I do not know why on earth my pal and I put ourselves through that much misery. My wonderful friend and I would take half a day just to get everything set up for camp. My friends say that setting up camp is a wonderful bonding time for the family. I feel it is a wonderful bonding time for their family, but it is more like a separating time for ours. My wonderful friend and I used to get so upset with one another while trying to set up camp. The hardest part was staying in the tent without air conditioning. It would be almost ninety degrees in the tent periodically. After my pal and I had our first son, I told my spouse that I could not do tent camping without air conditioning anymore, so he looked into renting a apartment for a couple of weeks in the summer. Long story short, my pal and I ended up buying a apartment at a absolutely wonderful price, and my pal and I camp a lot more now that my pal and I have our own cabin. The best part about camping in our apartment is that my pal and I have air conditioning. I no longer have to sweat through each and every night. It is attractive to say the least. After a warm day of kayaking, it is so nice to come back to an air conditioned apartment and spend the night in luxury. I would not go back to tent camping if someone paid me to go back. Air conditioning is too attractive to go back to tent camping.
