Well, once again as the summer begins to fade away, we didn't get out camping. I get nostalgic for the camping of my youth, when it seemed like we were off to a state park every weekend. Much of that probably had to do with cramped living conditions, and sharing a house with another family for a few years, but I learned to love tents and sleeping bags and roasted marshmallows. I have especially fond memories of a camping trip David and I took ages and ages ago - "Forgettable 45s," sweetie?
Somehow, these nostalgic memories don't seem to translate into tons of camping trips for us now. As we've gotten older, the lure of sleeping bags on hard ground, or even air mattresses, is less than compelling. Perhaps we're meant to try this new style of camping...this glamping thing. Check out the linked article - doesn't it sound fun? And luxurious?
However, the price tag is a little TOO glam for me: "Prices start at £275, about $488, at $1.82 to the pound, for two nights for a medium tent that sleeps two to three people." Yeesh.
