How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Could be those who tent camp are still young enough to get back up off the ground in the morning. Not all of us are physically capable to sleep comfortably in a tent any more.

We don't consider it camping either. We are simply "traveling in style". It's awesome waking up in your own bed every morning regardless of where you are.

I could not resist this at the time but I could probably walk away now.

It's too late, though!

It says "Lets go glamping".

Glamping is not for the faint of heart (and neither are these jammies!)

I do critter care for local lady who has a hobby farm. They have an area for Glamping... but they have big white tents and in them, are full queen size beds... It's almost like a combo bed and breakfast place/ Glamping experience on a hobby farm. when they go places, mostly over winter holidays, someone has to feed, water, turn out and shut back up for the night the chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl, ducks and resident kitties... that's me...LOL!

A number of years ago, when my husband and I were living in Europe, we bought a very nice trailer so we could travel through Europe with our 3 young children. It did not have hot water or a shower, so my husband installed them. Well our next door neighbor was camping with a tent and told us we were "not camping". Of course my husband replied that he had enough of camping in tents in the army.
Well the next summer our neighbor bought a pop up trailer as he said he didn't want to sleep on the ground anymore. The summer after that he bought a trailer too, so we had a good laugh about that.
So I guess my husband and I have been " glamping" for 35 years!

Safe travels, Lois
