miss diminutive: Connecting with nature without your spine being twisted out of shape from the uneven ground? No thank you.I like my camping trips like I like my relationships: short, rough and with few stakes. (but plenty of steaks)
UberDave: And if you are getting lost in the forest then you are doing it wrong.
b0rscht: Oh, look, somebody invented a new word. Makes me want to glust my frist into somebody's flace.
SpdrJay: Didn't that Blair Witch movie start like that?
Apos: "glamping" = high-end LARPing

Catlenfell: Or you could stop being pretentious and rent a cabin
InfrasonicTom: Most people who have money are more than willing to give it away rather easily.
stupiddream: My friends and I discussed this while camping this last weekend so I'm getting a kick etc...And $1200 is expensive. I could buy my backpack, air mattress (hey, I'm an old fart. Don't judge.), tent, sleeping bag and all of my food for the next 5 times I go camping for a 1/2 of that amount and my gear ain't cheap gear.
kumanoki: I have one word for you: yurting.
IrishFarmer: I'd make fun of this, but what I consider camping (pulling into a crowded camp ground with just a few trees separating each site in a relatively safe area with decent tents) would be mocked by more "hardcore" naturists.
Billy Bathsalt: InfrasonicTom: Most people who have money are more than willing to give it away rather easily.Not the ones I've met.
StroboscopicCamel: You're all missing the real story here. Fark's own MeowSaidTheDog made a typical "what the hell did they just say?" post at the bottom of the comment section. Whatever happened to herhimthem?
Deep Contact: Looks kind of primitive. Do they have room service?

Lightweight backpack, tent, sleeping bag, thermarest, cooking gear, food, shoes, clothes, etc can easily get there.That aside, it's been a long time since I've done that. I am working towards glamping, but slowly. Of course, my tendency is to drive my Xterra to the site, set up camp, and then go off-roading in the local area. If not off-roading, then hiking. No more sleeping on the ground. I've got a camp kitchen set-up, folding chairs, a nice thick foam pad for sleeping, etc. Next major project, in terms of personal comfort, is an off-road worthy trailer. I could buy one for about $10K or so, but fark that. I'm thinking of getting an old Jeep trailer (we've got a DRMO facility here in town) and rebuilding it how I want it. Slide out drawers for the stove, propane tank, roof top tent on top, storage for food, a fridge, charcoal grill, cooking stuff, water, etc. Hell, I'll even have a shiatter and shower when I'm done.
