Glamour Camping

Camping. It is something I have done an awful lot of in my lifetime When we camped when I was a  child, we roughed it . We started camping on a beach that we got to by boat. It was an inexpensive mini vacation for us as a family on the weekends. Eventually, we spent a month in the summer camping the east coast from  CT to NH, VT and Maine then we headed to the Woods of Quebec Canada .Tents, sleeping bags, food and cooking utensils, that was it. It was a great experience a child, I   always  loved camping and still do. I am much older now, and roughing  it would be ok except I wake up with aches and pains in the morn,, and I like air conditioning and a bathroom. so we rough it in a 30 ft camper, that has all the comforts of home.

This is camping as I know it...

                                 Camping is a relatively inexpensive vacation .

We are able unplug ourselves from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get back to what is really important.

Enjoying  one an other's company, being active in the outdoors and becoming one with nature.

 I love  laying outside looking at   at the size of the sky and all the twinkling stars..

State and federal parks across the United  States make it possible to enjoy what each of our beautiful  states have to offer.
 OR...... You can  go glamping..
An abbreviation of 'glamorous camping'; glamping involves all the luxuries of home. 'Glampers' stay in yurts, tipis or luxury caravans, instead of basic tents. This  is Camping  taken to the next level.. well, way beyond the next level, This approach  to  camping  originated in the 1990's. when wealthy travelers   came to Safari in Africa and stayed in upscale tents ,and glamping was born.This  caught on in Thailand, Europe then the United states..If you like sleeping under the stars, but roughing it isn't exactly for you, then give Glamping  a try.
