Lets face it, some people like camping, others hate it. I personally love camping and do it quite frequently with my Scout troop.


Vote and discuss camping, and your opinions on it.

I used to do some camping when I was in the Boy Scouts yeeeeeaaaarrrss back. I've camped out in the field as well when I used to go out hunting. Nowadays my mates and I go 'camping' when we're out of town doing airsoft games. We pitch a tent sometimes but mostly we just bring our vehicles and if weather permits sleep outside; just lay out our packs as pillows. Then in the morning and all day we would be slinging plastic :P.

It's always good to get away from civilization and just find some natural peace and quiet once in a while. It allows you to break the usual busy habit of everyday life and just enjoy nature and her beauty.

I hate camping. If you camped 7 months in a row (with a camper) you'd be tired of it as well.

What?! You don't like the music of the wind through the trees, birds chirping and running water?

Course I do, but our camp was filled with hundreds of girls, so we didn't hear anything but gossip! And during my first camp we slept indoors lol.

I used to like it when I was a child, but now not so much. I prefer having a clean bathroom and shower, and a comfortable bed.

I don't like it, I prefer it warm when I wake up (well maybe in summer it would been warmer :P ) and to have a comfortable bed.

I've been on school camps before but we stayed in cabins. I've never slept in a tent before. I don't think I'll enjoy it because I didn't even like being in a cabin. I mainly didn't enjoy camping because I was cold, hungry and tired through the whole experience. However, I would give camping outdoors a go just for the experience. Two years ago, I was going to go on a road trip with one of my friends and we were going to camp instead of staying in hotels to save money.

Camping with trailers or tents is ok when there's no way around it for some reason.

But we didn't work our butts off for millennia to create the nice places we have today just to leave them behind and have "fun" being miserable again, I think.

Well sometimes we get nostalgia about the misery. :P

Anyone like to sleep without cover? Like, just lay a mat down or your pack as a pillow and sleep under a tree or something?

Looove camping :D

Its part of my college must-do-list :D something like field work :D

Even Angels cry,
If you don't believe my words just look up at the sky,
Do you really think it's rain?
It's nothing more than heaven's pain,
Even Angels cry . . .
