Vacationing in a Camper

I have been a avid vacationer for many years. After getting married my parents took us to Disney Fort Wilderness, and we camped in a tent. This was not my cup of tea at all. I vowed to never camp again. Between the hard ground on my back, the long walks to the comfort building, and the lack of luxuries, I couldn’t do that ever again.

Recently we got a camper from my parents. My wife never figured me for a camper. Breaking all my previous vows I took the family, and the camper to Elmer’s Jellystone Campground. Now, I have to tell everyone thinking of camping not to attempt to hook up a camper at 10:00pm. Let’s just say that by the time I was done hooking up the camper I wanted to throw something.

In the morning we awoke, and the wife cooked us up a real nice breakfast of toast, eggs, and coffee. We had the luxuries of home, as I brought the laptop with Sprint Broadband connection, a tv, stereo, some board games, and some other odds, and ends. We all actually enjoyed the time away from home. Ahhh, the great outdoors.

Jellystone was a nice place. Pedal cart rentals, swimming pool, arts / crafts, and much more. By the end of the weekend I decided that camping in a camper was fine, and camping in a tent is just not meant.

We went away again a month later for Halloween activities, but this time we went to Mays Landing Jellystone Campground. This location was also nice, but lacked some of the things that Elmer’s had. BTW… Seeing someone camp with a blow up theatre screen is a site. They watched football, and racing on it. I can tell you that I saw that screen from across the park. I think I might have to eventually get one… Not for the tv channels alone, but to play FPS games would probably be spectacular.
