I just can’t do it! I hate bugs too much. When I leave the city and remember that mosquitoes exist I get sad… I couldn’t imagine sleeping out in the open with them! 

A nice cushy cabin I could do, though.

That sounds like fun!

I like the great outdoors if there is access to real showers and bathrooms (no outhouses for me, sorry), and bug spray and not too many mosquitos. I love camping with my family best, because my parents and my brother always has all the camp gear and first aid and food I could ever want. My partner and I want to go, but I swear, if we see a spider in our tent he would flip out and that might be the end of it, haha.

I love going camping, I only like to rough it for a few days.  However I took a friend along to our last trip. I did say to her there would be no power plugs in the shower area.. She still bought her hair straightner anyway!

Yes! The mister and I went camping up at Kettle Moraine a few years back for our anniversary, and it was such fun! If you’re into cycling at all, we had a great time biking through the little towns along the Ozaukee trail while up there. Devil’s Lake looks beautiful! I’ll have to check it out…

I love camping more than almost anything!  I have done multiple extended backpacking trips out west and lived outside 75% of the time in Hawaii for an entire summer (working for the Park Service).  I grew up doing canoe trips, and my favorite- every summer we went on an extended fishing trip in Canada.  I also grew up on a lake, river, and pond, so fishing is my favorite.  I have also gone off-roading with “guys only,” (mostly because other women never wanted to,) up into the mountains on fly-fishing trips.  I hiked everyday I lived out west.  I miss it!  I also used to go to hotsprings every weekend, and did an entire year-long program in experiential education where we were outdoors (in all kinds of weather) 3 out of the 4 days of the week.  😉

Well T is an eagle scout and my son is going to be a boy scout next fall…and T’s going to be one of the scout masters so I’d best get to likin’ camping!

Personally (as if you couldn’t have figured this one out) I never really did alot of camping and would prefer to be a “day camper” type of person (staying in hotel at night), but won’t want to miss out on any of our fun with the family.  I guess it’ll grow on me 🙂
