The only outside tv we will watch is a sporting event at night or moring news/weather with breakfast. It used to be on the radio with us, so why not?

And we NEVER leave a mess for the next guy.

The kids set up their chairs and watch a movie of choice while the adults sit around the campfire and roast marshmallows and eat s'mores.
Someday.. I'd like to meet you... I've read many of your posts and they all seem to be well thought out, helpful and very positive..

I do as Don does !!

We don't do campfires. We do cook outside a lot and if a good ball game is on, we MAY watch it. Mostly like to just chill out and enjoy the quiet. DW does not like to sit around much so we do a lot of sight seeing and eating out. We leave the TV to the inside and just before bedtime.

I sit outside and watch TV and do my computing, but I never run around the campground naked :-)

I do not leave food stuff outside where it might attract animals into the campgrounds!

Don't do outside TV
Do pee in the bushes
Do watch DvD's inside
Do metal detect around campgrounds
Do NOT have large tacky light globes on my awnings to anoy my neighbors all night.
Don't grill steaks inside, but I confess I will use a propane grill outside, not charcoal.
Do enjoy ourselves in our travels!

Sometimes I do the same. Computing - not running around naked. This way I can check on family and others I know on Facebook, get any email and enjoy the fresh air also.

We live in our motorhome full time, so we are rarely camping and usually use whatever amenities we have. However, we do occasionally go "camping" with a group of family or friends. When that happens there is a paradigm shift. We apply "camp" standards and do things and do not do things as campers would. For example, when "camping", I do not use terms like "paradigm shift". ;-)

No TV, we sit around the campfire, play a little music on the guitar and sing some songs

Well, my body could use a little slimming, I keep my shirt on when I go swimming, and I ain't seen my feet since 1984.
The old lady wants a roll in the hay, we turn the lights down all the way
'cause I don't look good naked anymore.
No, I don't look good naked anymore.
I'm a deep-fried, double-wide version of the man I was before.
If I keep on like I'm doin', I won't fit through the door!
And I don't look good naked anymore.
Well, I used to be a hell of a man, I chopped wood with just one hand,
but I can't do the things I've done before.
Well, it all happened kind of slow,
but I guess I kind of let myself go.
Now I don't look good naked anymore.
No, I don't look good naked anymore.

Don't Mow the grass. We take many 2 week vacations where if I cut the grass at home the day before we leave it will be OK till we return.

Don't wash dishes mostly when camping. We will use as much paper plates, bowls and plastic silverware as we could.

Don't have to deal with all the daily BS at my job. Fact, as I "punch-out" that last day before leaving all the stress stays there. As I know I retire in about 11 months.

I'm here to relax. Went to Kings Island amusement park ( Cincinnati OH. ) yesterday and using today to recuperate. Getting to old to ride those coasters with my kid. Still love the Beast at KI. Have a lakefront site at Stonelick State Park drinking my coffee and checking my email. This is my mobile office, with a view. Watching this Crane search for its morning meal. My son and my have been kayaking around the lake after dinner watching the two Cranes.
