I am not a camping type of boy, it took my guy one camping trip to realize it too. I thought I might like hiking plus getting a workout. Sleeping in a tent did not sound so bad. Well, the whole experience was horrible… First, I did the camping trip in the fall while it was still cold. So I was from to death the whole time. I was cold while walking, while I was by the fire plus especially cold at evening in my tent. There is no way to bring any form of heating on the camping trip. But if there was, I would have hiked all the way up with an electric furnace strapped to my back. It was just horrible to be so cold. I also realized that sleeping in a tent was bad. The no heating, hard ground plus small area made it seem like I was being punished. I was being deprived of my immense bed with bamboo sheets plus appealing temperature control. It seemed I was being punished by not being allowed to shower, use a toilet or brush my teeth, but my boyfriend is hot to trot about camping. He likes hiking plus sleeping in his tent. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand how someone is willing to be separated from running water, a nice bed plus quality heating and A/C. What is the point of getting rid of all of that plus being outside? I could set him up in my backyard if he wants that. I then would stay inside with my oil furnace cranked plus running water.
