Folks did it for about 60,000 years..... ;)

I often think back to when we tent camped (from 1973-1998). We had no electric, water or sewer and we were perfectly fine with that. Now we go camping and seem to need a site with full hookups. Itís really not camping anymore. I guess we can call it RVing, but camping, no.

I used to camp cowboy-style, on the ground, with a rolled-up blanket for a pillow, and laying next to the fire. One morning I woke up to find a copperhead sharing the fire's warmth.

As I got older the ground got harder. Last time I went tent camping was 2 years ago on a Green River (Utah) canoe trip. Loved it, would go again, but man oh man is it hard to unpack all the gear, set it up, and then pack it all up again the next morning after a day paddling the river. I must admit the views were not ones I could get from my RV, but I still am in the RV 6-7 months a year, and on the river a week every few years. Too much work for these old bones to do often.
