Hey guys! I haven't heard any of you mention the "Internet Connection" in these tents.

Gotta have feature around here

For me, one of the nicest features of tenting is the lack of internet. Or cell phone. Or TV.

Actually, many of the larger, "chain"-campgrounds are offering internet connections in their office or "day-room." Modern campgrounds are not uncomfortable: clean restrooms, hot showers, laundry..... we've never felt deprived at least..... To get "primitive" camping these days, you almost have to look for it! And, besides,taking a "cooking pot" bath is just part of the fun!

Good lord, folks..... we're the descendants of a people that crossed oceans and walked across continents, fighting the wilderness and native Americans all the way, building farms and roads and cities... and we can't spend a night outside walls! Can't be away from our electronic interconnections! Good gawd amighty! We is become a nation of wimps!

As for me I would love to camp and I get a little envious of those who do.But there is two people in this relationship and the other can't camp and I have to respect that for her.So we have to motel it. Fun can be had both ways.

You betcha, '82.... and my tongue was in my cheek during that last post. Wasn't really making fun of motel types, should have made that clear.... "Credit card" touring, with nothing more than a handful of credit cards and a tank bag and a toothbrush often appeals to us, quite frankly....but Red and I have never been able to afford it. We traded money and prestige for "rough" freedom, teachers's summers off, and have never regretted it.... the tent, sleeping bags, and other camping stuff have allowed us to go places and see things we couldn't have without them....

I hear you Cousin Jack... I've spent the last 30 years "kissing somebody's ass"...My father-in-law on the other hand, was a music teacher/band director for over 40 years.....He loved his profession and inspired many a young person to do great things....and he even made the hall of fame...Although he didn't make a tremendous amount of money, they lived well...and he loved his occupation..I admire those that don't do like myself and chase the almighty dollar...

Oh boy,,, here we go,,,,,,,,,,,, It was right about this time last year I started asking about camping equipment. I spent endless hours surffing web pages on tents, sleeping pads, stoves, and so much more. And it was blast.

I ended up with the advice I had gotten here. The Eureka Timberline 4 (tent) is good money spent. I was at the KOA at Mount Rushmore SD. and got hit by 2 hail storms. The second storm produced stones the size of a milk jug cap. I thought my tent was a goner for sure. Those stones just kept bouncing off for a good full 10-15 minutes.

Yepper,,,,, was real glad I spent $160. It cost that much for 2 nights in a semi-cheap motel.

BTW,,,,,,,,,,, I was very impressed with that KOA. The bath house was always clean.

The things I liked,,,,I\'ve tried em twice!
You have to be a little Crazy,,,,,, or else you\'ll go Insane.

Winger77:
Thanks for the indirect info on the KOA at Rushmore. We were there at tail end of July. I missed getting reservations there
due to a glitch in leaving Denver at a certain time. I badly wanted to stay there. Palmer Gulch KOA is the name I remember.
We winded up staying in Rapid City, the week before Sturgis.
