Camping is fun, dirty, uncomfortable, a lot of work, and fun.
Camping is a tradeoff between “roughing it” to see the wonders of nature, and the comfort of staying indoors. But do you have to be completely miserable to enjoy nature?
Question: How can I spend less time working and being uncomfortable, more time having fun camping?
Get a good night’s sleep.
Sleeping on the ground is uncomfortable. Why be uncomfortable when you can take along a mattress that can compete with your home mattress? And then, why spend your time and effort blowing up an air mattress? Get an air mattress and a battery powered pump to fill it up with air.
You can skimp on a lot when you go camping. But, especially if you are older, don’t skimp on your sleeping comfort.
