RV’s and everything that is wrong with them

“The World War II generation was used to going without, and they knew how to do things, or at least they weren’t afraid of cooking over a fire,” said Linda Profaizer, president of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds in Falls Church, Va. “Baby Boomers want everything to be fed to them, and they want it to be easy.” – RV Parks Make Roughing It Easier, New York Times, August 5 2007.

If you want your stomach to churn, check out the above article and brace yourself. As a duct tape camper myself, who’s spent over two total years under the stars, the fact that camping involves marble countertops, flat screen TV’s, extra-wide parking spaces and golf carts, makes me sick.

I’ll refrain from going too deep, but as miserable as it sounds to some, sleeping in a tent on the ground, is a humbling, exhilarating experience that no RV can match.

    I’ve been in a KOA only once on the trip, and it made me want to lose it. Wi-Fi, kids watching YouTube, $200k RV’s everywhere…it made me look down upon the RV Park lifestyle.

    Yellowstone, where there is no wi-fi or electricity, is much better.
