I have vacationed in the south, Hawaii and of course different places in New York but never a true adventure vacation. I am not against them the opportunity simply hasn’t arrived yet. Still there is one type of vacation that even if someone offered it to me I’m not too sure I would want to accept. My answer would most likely include the question: You Want Me To Sleep Where Now?
Where is the one place you would never want to go on vacation that other people seem to love?
Let’s go drive out to the most deserted area we can find, surrounded by nature and all the lovely inhabitants of the woods, no cell service and sleep all nice and snuggly like on the ground. Wait. What? You want me to sleep where now? See the whole ‘idea’ of camping and such is so picture perfect. I love the stories around a campfire and melting s’mores yet after all that. You know at the end of the night when the bugs all decide to come explore you as the new creature in the woods? That whole part of where you sleep. That’s the part I can do without.
If only there were a way to have the experience of camping in the woods without actually being ‘in the woods’. Do they have an indoor camp experience? Like a virtual woods minus the bugs, leaves and dirt? I know, I know you can always take an RV which is all well and good but still somehow just being parked in the middle of the woods still brings me to comfort.
I need to have a Wal*Mart and a Starbucks within a 10 mile radius and I definitely need to know that cell service will not be an issue in the case of a stray bear or wandering deer.
So that’s it folks. No offense to all the wonderful explorers and nature lovers but for me, for this chick, I need a hotel with clean sheets and running water not only to have a great end to my day but a happy start to the next.
No camping for me.
