Not all, but some.... the orifice in question is located on their shoulders. This explains why some are so full of it. I used to do high end hardwood floors and got to meet a few like this. Most wealthy peeople are just normal people with money.

Really Wikipedia is your "By definition" source? The unruly frog is never wrong when expressing an opinion. I may from time to time be a little shy on accuracy when spouting facts...

Regardless If you want to call sleeping, eating, bathing, watching movies in a Walmart parking lot in a MH camping then that's fine with me.

As long as we are having fun call it as you see it.

I "camped" in a Tank and other armored vehicles for 22years. I made up my mind one cold, wet, stormy night, that if I ever camped again, it would be in comfort. So, here I am and having a ball!!!

We prefer the "Rv resort" type places mostly because my wife does not like being in the middle of nowhere. I enjoy it also. Its more of an Rv/pickup/golf cart show. But I like it. When I was a kid we camped at more rustic type campgrounds without full hook ups but then we had a motorhome with a generator at two tvs so it was still a lot more fancy than what some folks talk about. We most likely will never camp at a state park unless it's in an area we are visiting for some other reason. We like the 10 10 10 campgrounds and have a pretty basic rig compared to the 40' fivers and DP's we park next to

Sort of a silly conversation imho.
Bottom line is this: grab the kids, their friends, grandkids whatever
Get outdoors and enjoy yourselves.
Matters not what you camp in or what "stuff" you take.
And leave no mess!!!

Wow, I don't know where you people find these campgrounds.... I always stay in a full-service campground. In 20,000+ miles, I don't think I've been in a "parking lot" more than half a dozen times, and for an overnighter, who cares? I guess there may be a lot of campgrounds like that in more urban areas. I did notice that it was more common in California and New Jersey, but I've done the entire I-10 corridor twice and Florida to New Jersey several times and never felt that I had to settle for a parking lot type of RV park.

I knew when it got to the bottom line you would agree..... Enjoy

For many years when I was younger I did a lot of backpacking, sometimes 2 - 3 weeks at a time on various trails around the country. We used to laugh at people in motorhomes who thought they were "camping." Now, some 40+ years later, I no longer wish to sleep on the ground (been there done that) and love "camping" in my motorhome with it's nice soft bed and real bathroom. Interesting how perspective changes as you go through life.

It's not camping unless you can find the biggest rock and put in it in your trailer as sort of a souvenir. It is Resorting if your trailer has a sunken living room. Either way you have the blue sky above you.
