What many folks don't understand is that many of us have absolutely no interest in "camping"... nor do we even OWN a driveway. We are travelers who use CG facilities while touring the country. We don't do campfires and we aren't trying to fill every waking moment with camping memories. We're simply enjoying life on the road. Nothing more and nothing less.

No need for labels.

Hiding from gkids
Hiding from DW
Hiding from everybody watching a movie I have seen 1/2 dozen times

I like the one about minding my own business so why don't you mind yours.

This week it's because Thom has an online school and I am making sure his coffee is refilled or he has snacks or lunch, etc because it's so involved he can't take the time to just get up and get whatever whenever. Thankfully the schooling is only 4 days. Work is paying for it so he's doing it, lol.

I have never understood that...

We have noticed that in the park where we keep our RV there are many people who stay in almost all of the time.I don't think bad of them I just happen to be an outdoors kinda person.

When we are at our 5er we spend our time out fishing on our boat, cooking outdoors, having a few drinks outside, visiting with others we know in the park, and on and on.... We are only inside to shower, sleep, or get out of bad weather. We don't even watch TV much, mostly music and enjoying each others company.

Just my .02

I agree! Not everyone is the "outdoorsy" type. Doesn't it always seem that the ones that are, are always judging the ones that aren't?

I don't care what anyone wants to do, so is it wrong of me to expect the same in return?
