It’s a complete puzzle to me.
How in the world is it that I have a family who will do just about anything in order not to go on a camping trip.
Is this some sort of unusual karma that I have to live through? It just sort of makes me crazy because I have been camping on a official basis throughout our entire life. And it’s not like I’m asking anyone to live off the land for afternoons at a time. I’m talking just basic car camping with numerous tents. But there are lavatorys, showers plus all that available at the camping area. The thought of leaving the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C for a few afternoons just makes the system of camping too painful for the rest of our family. I can barely get them off the couch plus out of the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C for a walk or a game of tennis. So I know it shouldn’t surprise me that camping would be unthinkable for them. This led me to start doing a little research about how dads like me were able to motivate their family to get out of the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C plus into the woods. What I found surprised me. The answer appeared to be portable Heating, Ventilation plus A/C. This took me by near total surprise. When I get chilly camping, I just snuggled down deeper in our sleeping bag. But if bringing along a portable furnace for the tent was what got our family camping, so be it. Turns out that our family ended up having a good time because of the heater. I have to divulge that, while a luxury, it did know nice on those crisp afternoons.
