Ha Hideaway, you and I are so similar. I dream of going on a camping road trip. My actual life dream is to go around australia in a caravan. I also want to camp my way around Europe. I basically want to explore the world. But I want someone to do it with- that special person I hope. But you kooky issues with that at the current moment.
if you have a smart phone, check out the camping apps.
Wikicamps is a good one, it has pretry much every campsite ever, include ratings, reviews, facilities, cost.
I love over love love camping, there's something so amazing about getting back to nature. I've often thought of pimping out a van with a mattress or getting a ute wiith one of those camper trailers. The only reason I'd lean more towards a caravan is for two reasons: it has a toilet (yeah I'm a girl, you know how we are with wanting toilets lol) and it just makes me feel safer, it has actual walls, a door that locks.
I want to want to do these trips with someone- you know a lover person- to share the sights and experiences, to be able to see a beautiful view and turn to the person you love and say, are you seeing this?
I was in Scouts for a long time, I know alllllllll about the amazing world of camping, but I too know it's annoyances, like wet tents. I'm not bothered by bush toilets (eg a handy tree) except at night when, as you know, the boogeyman comes out :-p hahaha
Boy out I wish I could go on a camping journey, hell even a weekend away camping would be amazing. Especially on a nice night when we can lie out of the grass and look at a clear sky full of stars, unhindered by city light pollution. Can't you just imagine it
please tell me all about your camping trip, mostly so I can sit here ridiculously jealous but living through you :-p bahaha
Go down to your local Kathmandu or Aussie Disposals, there's plenty of books about free camping sites, campin recipes, nice maps.
i know because I've been collecting them, just waiting for the chance- Someone to go "hey, come explore the world with me". I even have the tent, the sleeping bag.. I don't know why I buy camping stuff when I have no one to go camping with but,,, I do because I love it.
