NOT ALL PEOPLE

LOVE CAMPING

This is NOT an expose' on some mysterious cover-up in the world of campers and outdoor camping. This is merely a personal attempt to prepare the would-be outdoor camper(s) about the sometimes-harsh realities that accompany outdoor camping.

Believe me, would-be camper. I've been where you are wanting to go. Outside with your camping equipment, family or even your buddies for a weekend or maybe an entire week of communing with Mother Nature.

All I ask is that you think your outdoor adventure through BEFORE you set sail for the great outdoors. You might be thanking me later.

THESE ARE ACTUAL PHOTOS OF HOW HARSH AND UNPREDICTABLE OUTDOOR CAMPING CAN BE

I'M NOT A SPOIL-SPORT BY ANY MEANS

I believe in live and let live. Choosing my battles. Minding my own business. But I also believe in being up-front with people who are about to do something that is an entirely-new experience. I want to be thought of as helpful. Neighborly. And someone who, if he can help but one soul, then his work is finished.

I want to talk about camping. You know. Outdoor camping. The camping that we naturally associate with a picturesque American family consisting of a middle-class, successful man and woman with two highly-academic-minded kids named, Tommy and Judy and the fixture of Americana, the family dog, whose name is "Checkers," a noble Collie who is the most-humble and loyal dog ever to live in suburbia.

This family, whom we will call, the "Jones family," for they are the ones whom everyone around them uses them as a measuring stick of success. They hit the road in their leased Jeep Cherokee packed with the latest camping gear by Sears, Bass Pro Shops, and "Barney's Back Woods Supply, Inc.," Mr. Jones just happen to see in an ad in his Sunday newspaper. The Jones family is a happy family. They have no stress issues, tax problems, or serious matters of the marital sense. No wonder they are all smiles as they dream of their destination: Buzzard Neck, Nevada, home of pure, unadulterated wilderness and adjoining camprounds.

But not long after the Jones family arrives at the Buzzard Neck Camping Galore, Inc., they seem shocked. Surprised. Confused. Mr. Jones looks at Mrs. Jones who looks at Tommy and Judy all with glazed eyes and frozen facial expressions. "Uh, honey," remarks Mr. Jones. "Where are the other people? You know, the people we seen in the camping brochure we received in the mail?" he adds straining his neck to see if he has made an error in judgement of finding this campground.

Nope. The Jones family are right at home. Or fish out of suburban America, I should say. It's a very pitiful sight to see this camping-wannabe Jones family struggle to unpack their Jeep Cherokee loaded down with every conceivable home appliance known to man. They even brought along a handy Honda generator for power. What will they think of next? The Jones children, Tommy and Judy, seem lost. Disoriented. Out of place. They look on with silent hope that their dad knows 'something' about camping. Their young hopes are suddenly-dashed as Mr. Jones allows himself to be, as it were, 'eaten alive,' by the Sears Tough Nut Tent that sleeps eight people comfortably. Mrs. Jones gasps in fear as she sees her husband's feet disappear into the mangled, tangled, pile of plastic, fabric, and twine roping that is supposed to hold the tent in an upright position. This is something that the Jones family has never encountered. The closest thing to outdoor camping they, Mr. and Mrs. Jones, have ever experienced, was the time they met at their church's All-American Teen Rally held in Sarasota, Florida, when they were both young at heart.

Seems a long time ago. Much like ten light-years ago when Mr. Jones, a decent-built, athletic guy, could take on and overcome most challenges that life threw at him. And Mrs. Jones loved that in him. So she never took it on herself to learn anything. About anything. Especially the advent of outdoor camping.

Looking back, it seemed such a grand idea. Outdoor camping. All week-end. With the entire family. At picturesque. Peaceful. And safe, Buzzard Neck Camp Ground. Life has a way of beating the best of us down in order to teach us the way to live. And sensibly-survive with our dignity intact.

Just what would have happened if, and I mean a big "IF," Mr. Jones, normally the most level-headed, logical, and quietest man in his over-mortgaged neighborhood had just taken the priceless tool of time to check out all the in's and outs. Do's and Dont's. Of outdoor camping. As I am about to bring up in a minute.

His family would have had a great weekend. Safe. Happy. Secure. Now all that's left for the Jones family is to kneel down and pray to God, who does hear the prayers of the uneducated. Uninformed. Head-long people who think that they know all about a new wrinkle that has surfaced in their lives only to discover how foolish they were at heart for not using their heads.

Now listen carefully. If you, your family and friends are of a special breed who literally and figuratively love the spills. Chills. Skinned knees and elbows. Lost sleep. And other annoyances of the wilderness, then disregard this story entirely. I am not talking to you. I am though, talking to all the wide-eyed, so-called adventurous-at-heart people, young and old, who have bought into the illusion that outdoor camping is a breeze and think that they can easily 'lick' with shiny pride, the unknown factors that lurk everywhere around the once-fun activity of outdoor camping.

I should know plenty about outdoor camping. My family and I used to love to camp. At anytime. Any reason. With our without other people. We were there. In any camp ground. Near or far. KOA, Sam's Club, Wilderness Club, it didn't matter.We were really sunk into camping.

We, I think at this stage of my life, made our selves love the idea of sleeping in a tent under the stars--listening to the harmonious sounds of the crickets, frogs and other wilderness creatures whose song was really entitled, "Just Look At The Human Camping Fools," that we thought was the sweet sounds of nature.

We loved camping to such a degree that we once slept through a fierce thunderstorm while we looked out out tent windows at our plates, cups, and most of our supplies being blown to Kingdom Come by the howling winds. Ahh, the flashes of lightning. Crashing thunder. Better sleep-aids than any Sominex you can buy.

Yes, outdoor camper wannabe's, you can save money by camping. Yes, for a short while, you will find an unspoken sense of newly-found independence and freedom of being away from the smoggy city and loud highway traffic. I am not arguing about that. I am just trying desperately to get you, maybe just one of you, to stop. Think. And really look at every aspect of outdoor camping. I am not joking. Or telling you a lie. What would I profit by doing either to you?

I am now finished with my lecture, well a personal commentary about the harsh truths about outdoor camping. And again, I am not here to spoil your fun, but to help you make an intelligent decision of whether or not you would really, deep down in your humble heart, love outdoor camping.

If you are convinced. After all I have said. Brought up . Brought out. In this story, that you are ready. Prepared. And would really love outdoor camping. I say, "have at it." Be my guest. With my blessings.

But I will confess to you that from all of my outdoor camping experiences, the only outdoor camping my family and I will do now, at this juncture of our lives, is bedding down in a cool, comfortable, Holiday Inn Express. Maybe a Marriott. Okay. A Days Inn. These are the 'camp grounds' for me.

And as I am finishing up this story at 12:36 p.m., cst, on Friday morning, Nov. 25, 2011, it occured to me that some hubs are planned. And some hubs just happen.

I trust you to discern how this one became a reality.

DISCLAIMER: Holiday Inn Express, Marriott, or Days Inn neither offered or paid me to include their names in this story. (Kenneth Avery).




PLEASE REMEMBER,

OUTDOOR CAMPER
WANNABE . . .

These things also accompany outdoor camping:

  • ANTS
  • MOSQUITOES
  • NOSY NEIGHBORS
  • CAMPING PARTY PEOPLE WHO THROW LOUD, BOOZE-LADEN PARTIES UNTIL THE BREAK OF DAY
  • BURGLARS
  • UNKNOWN SOUNDS IN THE NIGHT

JUST BE CAREFUL. AND BE SURE THAT OUTDOOR CAMPING IS FOR YOU.

Dear Kenneth,

I have never been outdoor camping.

I always thought sleeping in a tent would be fun but I could see myself being eating up by the tent just like Mr. Jones. lol

Voted up up and away!

Have a good evening my friend :-)

Hi, Don! Yesireee! RV'ing, Holiday Inn, Days Inn, are THE only way to camp, but I am not taking anything from the true roughing it lovers, whom I respect with all of my heart. They are a tougher, rougher breed of people. I tried. And failed. Glad to be able to say, "king size bed, please," and enjoy my AC, TV, and PC. Thanks, Kenneth

Thank YOU Sincerely, Jackie. I have to agree. Nowadays, the outside time for me is sitting in the shade in summer and in early fall. Maybe an occasional dart outside in January, but no camping. I cannot cut it anymore. I appreciate YOUR visit and comment. YOU are a very special writer and friend. I shall not forget all that you have said to me. Kenneth

Dearest Sueswan, Sincerely, THANK YOU for the warm comment. Never been camping? Then you KNOW what you have been missing. It takes a tough, carefree soul to love camping. But like Don Bobbitt in his comment, RV's, are great and for me, motel room camping is the way to travel. Thanks, DEAR Susan, for the sweet visit and votes. Have yourself a peaceful weekend. Fondly, Kenneth

A great hub. I have been the rough camping trip some without even a tent. My last camping trip was with fourteen teenagers on the Washington coast. Some were in tents, some were in our camper on the back of our pickup. Cold, wet and miserable are my memories. My husband and I have recently moved out of a fifth-wheel we used to travel and camp for the last 3 years. Now I want motel room (no cleaning), cafes or restaurants (my meals prepared and served, again no cleaning). Looking forward to reading more of your hubs

THANK YOU, FROM THE HEART, mljdgulley!!! That made my day! All the way around. I too have dealt with soggy eggs, hot colas, ants in the cookies, you can pretty much name the ways that Mom Nature has told me to NOT camp anymore! And she means it. Thanks for the sweet comment. Bring on the Motel 6 and I will look for the light that is being kept on for me!

NOT A CAMPER BY ANY MEANS ANONYMOUS HERE! Hi my name is Mandy and I am not a camper. I was last turned off to camping when as it usually goes It stormed so bad my tent blew away and I took shelter in my car with 6 other people. This time same but slightly different when in the morning we awoke to find our car was flooded in thick red mud. Tried to GO WITH THE FLOW and just worry about it later and we all decided to go fishing NEVER AGAIN As I was the catch of the day 5 different times! I was obviously with experts in fly fishing who really knew how to throw a line IN THE WRONG DIRECTION and they made it very clear they were not fishing for FISH! GOOD TIME! GOOD TIMES! lol thanks for bring back such trauma...lol enjoyed your hub tremendously!

Dear Mandy, I am without words of appreciation for YOUR lively and humorous comment. Was it that bad? Wow! This is one of the reasons I dont camp anymore...but I would love to spend a summer night in an old-fashioned barn loft sleeping on soft hay with a slow rain falling. That would be great for NO tent to blow down. NO stakes to pull up. Just wake up. And get! Mandy, I tell you seriously...Ive read comments on my hubs from a lot of hubbers, but YOUR comments actually stand out. YOU are so comical that you really need to do some stand up comedy on the side for pay! I think you are that funny. Sincerely, and I will see you down the Hub Highway!

Hahahaha, I loved this hub Kenneth. I will NOT show it to my husband who agrees wholeheartedly with you. Unfortunately, our boys (they are scouts) love camping and so we must go with the scouts. My husband had never been camping in his life before our oldest joined scouts. His first trip was so blazing hot(over 100 degrees) we could do nothing but sit and sweat. His second trip was so cold he could barely move and on his last trip it was so windy, he was up at 3am chasing the chairs and the neighbors canopy which blew into the tent on the other side and knocked all their stuff over, which he then helped chase down. During my first time camping as an adult(with the scouts of course) I had a skunk in my trash right outside my tent flap. I had been warned about the skunks and told to keep my trash up, but I forgot the warning immediatly, distracted with the chore of figuring out how to get the tent up. Turned out, all I had to do was smile and look lost at the guys next door and it got up all by itself.

Bob . . .I really appreciate that compliment, my friend. LOL. I do try my best to say the right stuff at the right time. And even with me being married, I still have "the" gift of diplomacy and tact even when caught red-handed sneaking a few fattening cookies out of the noisy cookie jar to eat for "testing" purposes.

Thanks again, man!

Great hub! I love it! My parent used to take me camping out of the back of a pickup, no camper, just a couple of air mattresses and a shower curtain in case it rained. Thank God that was only for a couple of days at a time. My husband and I have always taken our kids camping when they were little, but we had a camper. Actually it was an old school bus that we turned into a camper. Over the years, we have graduated to a motor home. I still like to cook over a fire outside and love to go walking in the woods. We just got back from a camping, fishing trip. Had a wonderful time. I love this hub! Voting it up and useful. Have a wonderful day! :)

Hello, sg,

and I want to take a momen to just THANK YOU for your kind spirit and heart. It shows in your hubs and comments. God bless you for taking time to do this. And camping in a school bus sounds like paradise to me. When our daughter, our only child, was small, we would camp in those state-owned parks in a tent no less and unless you have rode out a thunderstorm with winds that cleared your utencils and nearly the tent, then you havent lived. Yes you have. RV camping was always my love, but could never afford it.

I love your comments, sg. Take care and have a wonderful day yourself and visit with me again.

Fantastic - voted up and funny and I'm going to share it. Your photos are great - except, maybe, Goldie Hawn (lol).

When my sister and I want to express to each other that a situation was beyond dreadful we say "it was like camping."

The other Patricia, by way of contrast, loves camping!!! So, no accounting for tastes.

I used to love camping and had some great times, in the UK that is. I have to admit as you get older you become less able to enjoy camping in a tent quite so much. My husband was Ok with it until on one trip to Wales when the weather was far from kind, he vowed and declared he would never set foot under canvas again. Camping did allow us a holiday even when times were tough, and we loved the sites we visited every year, but the time came to move up in the world and we bought a battered old caravan...Bliss. As finances improved we bought a better van...orgasmic. I do see your point though, you can either camp and enjoy it or loath and hate it. Great hub voted up etc etc. By the way I just published a new hub a few weeks ago of my experiences of camping on a farm when I was very young. Maybe you would enjoy the read.


kenneth avery profile image

kenneth avery 4 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

My Dear Friend, unknown spy, you are a blessed person with having NO bears in your land. That fact alone says that camping where you live is more enjoyable than most places.

Be careful when you do go camping.

I wish I could rekindle the desire I had for camping when I was younger and much-healthier.

Thanks too for your kind comments and following me. I sincerely appreciate it.

Kenneth

2patricias . . .well, hello! Where have you been for so long? I miss my followers when they do not comment or email. I enjoyed your comment on this hub about camping and how you two do not share a love for this outdoor activity. At my age now, I dont either. I used to love it and I admit that it was economical in our days. More feasible than a costly motel room. But life has a way of changing us or we change and life remains the same. Whatever happens, I miss and don't miss camping in the same memory.

Kenneth

Hello, bac2basics,

thanks a million for your camping comment. Sounds like me, my wife and daughter when we did camp-out. We had a tent made for five. We loved it. So much so, that two weeks ago the wife found it in storage and it was too worn to keep, so I threw it in with our trash for disposal. At least we got our money's worth. $35.00 is what the tent cost NEW in 1980! Can you believe that?

And yes, I WILL check-out your farm hub. I too was raised (mostly) on a rural farm and loved it.

I paid my camping dues when my children were young, because they wanted the adventure. Camping in a tent or even a camper is hot, uncomfortable, lets you in for mosquito bites, and did I mention it's BORING? Not only that, Mom still has to cook, but without a standard size stove or dishwasher.

I once stepped out of the camper door barefoot in the dark (stupid? yes, I suppose so) and felt something warm and furry sink under my foot. I screamed and ran back inside the camper. The next morning a dead mole lay where I'd squashed it. UGH!

I have no fond memories of camping!
