Among people with low expectations for a summer getaway, tent camping rates number one, according to a new survey.
Survey respondents talked about how tent camping lived up to their pitiful requirements:
“Waking up in a puddle after an overnight rainstorm was truly refreshing.”
“Softest bedrock I ever slept on.”
“Sometimes we even got to remove our mosquito-net hats.”
“Each night before bed, we bonded by pulling ticks off each other.”
“My teens are still raving about the fun they had digging their own latrine.”
“During that magical week, we spotted a chipmunk, a garter snake, and literally dozens of squirrels.”
“The evacuation brought everyone in the campground together, like family. We still exchange Christmas cards with the firefighters.”
“Nothing compares to hamburgers cooked over an open flame. We could eat them every night of the week. Come to think of it, we did.”
“We heard lovely chirping of crickets after 3 a.m., when the neighbors turned off their car stereo.”
“I’ve got great video footage of those bears tipping my car into the river.”
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
