It seems like people who started out tent camping, especially when they were younger, enjoy it better than RV camping. I bet camping with lots of friends is fun.

You are right, there are remote places where RVs just can't go, but my bones are aging too and just can't see myself in a tent.
When we have rented an RV it has been for a week at a time and I am with you. By the end I am desperate for my own bathtub and bed. We also end up going to eat because I am so sick of doing dishes on my vacation. I do like it though, not a tent.
That is definitely not impossible. Growing up in the city, I never went camping until I got married.

I have to agree, for me an RV is the way to go. We have rented cabins,, but never in a campground.
I think you are right. If I was younger I would probably be more daring and try tent camping, but I really enjoy a mattress and something a bear can't get into.

The 2 times we have rented we chose RV campgrounds that were really spread out and they were quite nice and not too crowded. We actually stayed in Vermont at one of the State campgrounds and we were the only RV in our section and it was really quiet.
Seems like it is about 50/50 for people answering and it definitely seems like most people like their way and stick with it. I may have to give a tent a try (may should be in caps for me).
Good luck. But be aware of the dangers of your area. I learned in Florida where you worry about a gator being outside your tent in the mornings. Now I'm in Texas and more horrified because of the danger of snakes. Gators you can see better.

What a trip that must have been. Both towns are so beautiful and I can't imagine the stops in between. I'm with you that an RV is the way to go. We could always bring a tent an my daughter and husband could sleep in it while I camped in the RV bed
You are like my husband. He doesn't mind an RV, but would prefer a tent and the options it can offer.
I like the bathroom in an RV too.

I only started "camping" after I got married and so far only in an RV. That is roughing it for me, but my daughter would love to go tent camping!
Judy Specht says
Wow - that sounds like a pretty nice camping tent, especially the steak dinner. You are braver than me camping in below freezing weather.
John Connor says
What a terrific photo, but like your wife and daughters, would prefer a cabin, at least to run to in the middle of the night if one of those critters you mentioned came to visit.
It's nice you enjoyed your time tent camping growing up. I imagine it is loads of fun for children.
I'm with you on this although I do love the outdoors, just like a nice warm place to come home to after a long day in nature.
That is like my husband. Maybe he and our daughter can go one weekend.

I know what you mean. Some of those RVs have big screen tvs. We have rented twice, and they were small and cozy but comfortable for the 3 of us, no television. However, I do have to agree that a hotel with room service is the best way to go.
