Hi, my name is Tom and I take the RV to campgrounds.........RV resorts or wherever I can park it to enjoy the outside air. No, it's not throwing a tent up in the boundary waters of Minnesota or in the back country of Algonquin Provincial park...I've done both and loved it.
I've enjoyed many "camping" experiences over the years and have the memories to savor. I still enjoy the campground feel, without the back pain in the morning after sleeping on the ground.
I'm thinking the person that posted that picture may be young and enjoying "camping" (as many of us have done) at this point in their lives, which may also change in later life.
Therefore, I say camp or RV on and enjoy the outdoors using the method that suits you, whatever that may be......and please pass the remote.
OH...add me to the Facebook haters list.

Saw this on Facebook

In the 1970s I lived for a couple of years as an itinerant biker. Didn't even own a tent for about 8-9 months of that. Sleeping bag and an old tarp. I've got a fair sense of what does or does not constitute camping, at least for me.

I tend to agree with Norman, Jupiter, and others. DW and I live full time in a 40 ft DS. This is NOT camping, but we sometimes enjoy the still pleasurable atmosphere and ambience of camping. That said, I always go for 50A and a sewer connection. That's just me, now. 😃

I THINK what they meant to put under the RV was "REDONKULOUS"

I think back to my army days, sometimes just rolled up in ground sheet - THAT was camping (at least the way some folks are defining it). No tent, no fire, cold rations.

We also had a saying "Any fool can be uncomfortable in the field" and I think that applies to "camping" and "RVing"

I do not consider myself a fool (at least most of the time) now. I like to sit out in the "campground", cook outdoors and have a fire. I also like to sit inside and watch a movie on a rainy day, and I really appreciated my own hot shower and bed!

P.S - We also worked our way up from a 9x9 Coleman tent, tent trailer, TT and now a MH

We were at a state park a couple of weeks ago when a thunderstorm rolled thru. I noticed that all the "campers" were no where to be found the next morning. I guess my ridiculous fared a little better than their tents. I'm of the age where tents are no longer a viable option but I kinda envy their youth and tenacity at good old fashion tent camping. Now days my idea of "roughing it" is a black and white TV at the Holiday Inn.....with no cable channels.😬

My first RV was a tent trail towedd behind my Goldwing. The tent came with a garage. We traveled the US for two years with this rig but it was hard work. Too much like camping, lol. Now the bike goes in the garage of the toy hauler, which we consider glamping.
