Experiences

Camping Experiences: Here are some Camping Experiences from campers who have shared they’re camping stories and advice. Sometimes the best way to learn something is from experience. The great thing here is: other campers will share their good and bad experiences helping you make the right choices when you go camping. Ultimately, helping you avoid your own bad camping experiences. Plus, some of these camping experiences are quite the laugh and I love reading them! Enjoy!

Living the Camping Dream

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  - Lao-tzu Some might say we’re a little bit crazy, but that’s okay. We love our life of living full time in our RV - living the camping dream! It’s a dream come true, a never-ending story of our continuous journey of freedom. Some will say there is no way on earth they could give up their house and all the stuff it holds, and tha

Camping With Your Two Gay Dads

My very first camping trip was with my two gay dads, Alan and Sean. I was 12 years old. It was the first time mom had allowed me to spend time away with them and I was determined to make it go as smoothly as possible and therefore envisage future trips. A Seemingly Great Idea Alan (my biological dad) was hell-bent on making my trip to the great outdoors the ultimate camping experience (I’m sur

Camping In the Back Garden – Well, Almost…

Camping in the back garden with your mates may not sound very scary but wait until you try it... "Turn the light on! Turn the light on now!" It was Emma's first time camping and so far, it wasn't going too well. Unfortunately the garden light turned on when there was a movement and every 2 minutes it would switch off. After 5 seconds of hysterical screaming she would jump out of the tent and st

Pitch Imperfect: The Wrong Place to Pitch Your Tent

Camping! Much like purchasing real estate, the three most important things are location, location and location. I learned this the hard way.

Camping in Romania: Don’t Forget the Camping Essentials

I live in Romania, to be more specific Transylvania. It's a beautiful location full of mountains, plains and hills. I don't want to bore you with details about the beautiful green grass in the summer or the pure white snow in the winter. It's a great place, and I live right in the middle of it. A few days ago I and some friends decided to pick up our bikes and go camping in a forest nearby. I took

The Day the World Ended

In the summer of 1972, my two sisters and I were three wily adolescent girls, all on the brink of trouble. So our father, Eugene Porter, dragged us camping to the most remote spot that he could find – the Gila Wilderness in western New Mexico. Daddy struck camp there and we found ourselves stuck out there for two weeks in the middle of a glorious nowhere with our tent-loving, bean-cooking, story
