Is Tent Camping Becoming Extinct?

If you’re over the age of 35, the word “camping” elicits memories of hiking into the woods among the natural habitat of the insects and the animals, pitching a tent, making a fire, and spending time with your fellow campers. As you roast marshmallows on sticks you found during your trek, you reminisce, sing, laugh, and simply live in the moment with each other.

Does a Kid Text in the Woods

The essence of camping, of being one with the land and fellow human beings, has all but lost its true meaning. In recognition of National Camping Month, I would like to suggest a movement this June to bring back the good old days of rugged, wilderness, tent camping. Are you with me? Good!

Will be camping in the Mountains of NC in July. And when we go camping we hike a few miles into the woods and do it the real way! No electric, no RV, just the great outdoors

Excellent, Les! The mountains of NC are one of my favorite spots on this earth. They're beautiful during every season of the year. I hope to take my kids someday - just us, our tents, and our marshmallows. Have a great time!
