Why I’m not camping anymore

I’m tired of camping.

I don’t want to camp anymore.

 And I know I’m a hypocrite.

It’s just too much work and time.

I’ve been a big outdoor gear guy for more than 20 years.

The last thing I need is to spend my life working on a gear that isn’t necessary.

I’m sure I could take a day off to get away from the computer.

But I’m an outdoorsy guy, and that’s not going to cut it.

I don’ need to make every trip to camp.

I want to do it once a year.

I need to enjoy the outdoors, but I’m also going to need to get back to my work.

I also need to keep my busy schedule so I don: 1.

Have the time to hike, hike, walk, do the laundry, eat breakfast, have dinner, have a shower, shower, sleep and cook dinner.


Take a day to rest up and relax.


Get a few good exercise habits.


Make the most of the time I have on my hands.


Do a little bit of everything.

I mean, seriously.

When I’m in the gym, I do some strength training, some cardio, some weight lifting, some hiking, some swimming and some yoga.

And that’s about it.

Every time I camp I’m trying to do all of that.

What I can’t do is do all the things that I’m supposed to do when I’m camping.

For example, I’m going to miss out on all the delicious food I can eat in a campsite. 

The food is still good, but it’s not the food that I want.

Food and the weather is a huge issue.

It’s a big, big, important issue for me.

And, yes, it is.

It is the reason why I’m doing this interview.

And that’s a problem that can be solved by being more intentional about camping.

I can do all these things that would be out of the question if I were camping.

It just requires a little more time and planning.

That being said, I also know that I can always camp at a resort or in an RV park.

I just have to make sure that I get the most bang for my buck and spend more time there than I do in a campground.
