When my father in law asked me the other day if I would be interested in heading off on a family camping trip I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Don’t get me wrong I love my in-laws and spending time with them is almost always fun, but up until that point I had never taken them as the camping type.
These are the type of people that will be in a restaurant and will tell the waiter if they are miserable because the air conditioning is set to 69 degrees and not 71. My father in law went on to tell me that the type of camping they would be doing wouldn’t be as hardcore or intense as I origionally thought because we would be going in the family RV. I had never done anything like this before, but I certainly was a fan. Being able to come home from a long hike and have air conditioning in the RV to cool you down was nothing short of amazing. Due to the fact that we live in one of the most humid regions of the country its almost suicide to spend time outdoors without having some type of air conditioning option available to you nearby, so I tip my hat to all of the people that we saw at the campground who only had basic tents and gear. In the meantime my in-laws and I will stick with our air conditioning unit, comfortable beds, and built in shower. You can call it lame or not authentic if you would like, but if you ask me we were the only ones doing the camping thing right!
