Let’s Go Camping!

There are many different “types” of camping. Some believe in the primitive way. Such as those who still believe that the discovery of fire was the best thing that ever happened to mankind and want nothing more than to “rough it” out there in the Great Outdoors. Others, more often than not, believe that summer camping is definitely a great thing if (and only if) an RV filled with all the needs of modern life is the transportation to their base camp out there in the wilderness.

Of course, when it comes to choosing the right hobby, personality is everything.
