I do two kinds ...

... of camping. One is like this:

The other is more like this:

Both have advantages. I appreciate the comforts of the former and the solitude of the latter.

The Saint I am Married to doesn't do the latter, so it's the former if she and I are going to camp together. Like everything else in life, it's all about compromise.

Thanks for reading,


  1. My idea of roughing it is a hotel room without air conditioning in the summer.

    That's a nice trailer you have. I especially like the fold out awning. Now, if you could hang some curtain screens, add some patio furniture, unroll a nice section of AstroTurf and finish it off with a few pink plastic flamingos... well, it would be just about perfect.

    Maybe a custom plate for the trailer: HOSEDRAGER-1

    You think?

  2. If I added astro-turf and flamingos, It would too closely resemble my primary residence, a look that I'm trying to get past.

    As far as a room without a/c being roughing it, I totally agree. Please note the A/C unit on top of the trailer. Don't leave home without it. Or don't camp where it's hot.

    Thanks for commenting Mad Jack.

  3. Haha, too funny Captain!

    I do the same with the lovely wife. Campgrounds with chopped wood, tent trailers and showers when we're together. Under the truck or under the stars when we're not....

  4. 5400 - I gotta be honest, I kinda like a tent when in the boondocks and my back really likes a cot. Fortunately, both fit quite well in the jeep!

    Thanks for the comment - BTW good luck on finding the right school.
