Camping is freaking awesome. I only get to go once a year or so, but I'm saving up to buy a nice tent of my own and then I'm gonna go allllllllllllll the time since there's some awesome places in the mountains only about an hour's drive away.

In my opinion, being constantly outside in the fresh air for several days at a time is one of the most refreshing things ever. Also, nature is awesome and so is hiking.

Anybody else really like camping or just being outdoors in general? How often do you guys go camping?

Pretty often, but really, how neat is that?

Not as often as I'd like. I don't think I'll be able to get out as much this year either.

Me and my bros enjoy it though. Some of my best times with them are while camping.

I love going camping. I don't do it nearly often enough anymore.

It's not "freaking awesome." The best parts about camping are more conveniently and enjoyably done without the actual camping part (besides the whole nature thing I guess).

Not too often do you find so much neatness in one place as you do while camping.

Car camping or backpacking? I love backpacking. Car camping is arguably a jillion times more comfortable because you can bring guitars and booze and everything else you want. Backpacking is the superior option because you're living under nature's roof.

Used to go a couple of times a year. Haven't been for a while though. Where I live there's literally no shortage of places to put a tent so it's pretty awesome.

There are actually few things in this world I hate more than camping. I get the whole "challenge" thing but I don't see how it could outweigh the horrors.
My dad always used to make us go when I was a kid. It was always grim.
- You're sleeping on the ground, which is unlikely to be very comfy unless you've found a patch of ground made of cushions and marshmallows
- You may or may not be surrounded by a menagerie of horrible insects biting you to death
- You're very limited on what you can cook
- If you're on a campsite, the toilets are disgusting. If you're not on a campsite, there are no toilets, which is disgusting
- Weather
- Putting up your average tent is more difficult than building a house
- Last but not least, you probably can't get an internet connection so no pit

It's cold & raining every other day where I live, so I'd much rather stay inside in a warm comfortable bed... But in nice weather conditions, camping can be pretty sweet!

Camping sucks lol I've camped for almost 4 months straight this summer doing forestry work in remote location.

Yes, but annoying.

But you'd better not be spawncamping, TS.

You really hurt camping, how would you feel if camping made fun of you?

Common boy, man up a little!


I usually go on canoe camping 23 days strait every summer. The most epic stuff I have ever lived and seen is doing that. Nature is awesome and your always happy. Not like the depressive city.

- You're sleeping on the ground, which is unlikely to be very comfy unless you've found a patch of ground made of cushions and marshmallows
I've slept on much worse places than grass before. As long as it's not below 0C I can sleep fine.
- You may or may not be surrounded by a menagerie of horrible insects biting you to death.
Bug spray + long sleeves.
- You're very limited on what you can cook
If I was given access to a 5 star restaurant's kitchen and all the food in the world I'd still end up making scrambled eggs. I can't cook for shit.
- If you're on a campsite, the toilets are disgusting. If you're not on a campsite, there are no toilets, which is disgusting
Embrace the squat.

- Weather
Forecasts.

- Putting up your average tent is more difficult than building a house
Only if you have parkinsons and are blind and paralyzed from the neck down.

- Last but not least, you probably can't get an internet connection so no pit
The Pit sucks anyway

Two of my friends had the same opinion of camping as you and then I forced them to go camping out in the wilderness with me and they loved it. Most of the time it's not where you go camping, but who you go camping with.

EDIT:

Camping is really neat!

Devourke is supremely correct. It's really about who you're with. If you're with some good buddies or a prospective female counterpart, it really makes a difference on the whole spontaneity and mood of the trip.

It's hard to prioritize the beauty of nature and primitivism over sleeping on hard ground , putting up a tent, eating cheap weenies, and twiddling your thumbs when you're sober with your dysfunctional nuclear family.

Putting up a tent drunk with your best buds, carrying a pretty gal down to the riverside in the crispness of the morning, drinking cold brew and smoking a cigarette by the fireside having a great conversation, waking up and seeing raindrops slide off the roof of your tent...there's the beauty of camping.

So beautiful...

I live in a valley and on one side of the valley there's a massive hill with a trig point on top. Me and my mates hiked up it set up our shit and whatever and then just chilled and shit. Me and my best mate ended up going to the trig point while the other two were getting high and just looking at the city and talking until like 7am in the morning. Full Moon + Surrounded by nature + Still being able to see all the lights from the city + Being with you rest bro = Marvellous.

You've clearly never been camping and properly prepared then. Also, campfire hotdogs are the shit.

What's the current like on that big ass river Daytripper? Next time I go camping I want to go rafting as well.
