There were times when I loved taking my camper and parking it in a campsite and spend the week, reading, hiking and such
I must say that I'm not a great camping fan myself, but I do remember a few good times sitting around the campfire when I was younger. I like the idea of a campervan, much more than the tents that I used to sleep in. If you're sitting there thinking 'I don't have a campervan, or a tent', then that doesn't mean you can't go camping of course. With a bit of resourcefullness, its possible to make a shelter using only an old taupalin and a few large sticks. So, if the wild outdoors appeals to you, why not find a way to make it work for you, or (particularlt good if you have kids) set up a tent in your garden for a change.
