    May sound sad but I don’t think I’ve ever slept in a tent! We always had campers or motorhomes. or even horse trailers! Never a tent, I don’t recall!

  2. Joy says:

    When the kids were in the early teens. I’m not a tenting type of person. I don’t like the mess and the work.

    I think the last time I went camping in a tent I was 18. Before I moved to MN I went on a camping trip with a buddy of mine and his wife. I used to really like going camping, I hope that when my son gets bigger when can do some camping of our own.

    My parents went every summer when I was a kid… we’d bring the tent but rarely bothered to set it up, instead, we’d just toss the sleeping bags on the ground and sleep under the stars.

    As an adult, I haven’t done much tent camping, in fact, I think the last time I did was when I worked for the Boy Scouts. That would have been pre-2000 … um … 1996, maybe?

    Unless you want to count the 2-day power failure we had here during the winter five-ish years ago, when we set Josh’s little kid tent up in the living room and I slept in there with him for warmth.

    It’s been a long time! It’s fun, but I really like sleeping in a bed and having four solid walls. We were camping one year and a really bad storm rolled through and as the walls of the tent started bending sideways we decided to make a break for the motor home. (Remeber that Jenny? Or were you already in the motor home?!) Not 5 minutes after we got to the motor home the tent went flying! I’m not so keen on tents anymore!

    Probably in my late teens. I had to buy a pup tent for a college backpacking class when I was 16. Some time after the class, I thought it would be fun to set up the tent in the backyard and sleep out there. I warned all my siblings to NOT let the dog loose while the tent was out there. Needless to say, my sister decided I was an idiot to think the dog would actually destroy my tent the first chance she got. Ha! That was the end of that.

    When I was a kid, my parents used to take us camping in tents most summers. I really loved it. I always thought I’d do that with my own kids someday. But now, being 40 years older than my kids, it doesn’t sound like that great of an idea. We’ll see. Maybe once, just to say we did.

    I never went camping. I think I’ve missed a lot!

  8. Laura says:

    I’d like to go again, but I’m pretty persnickety about the kind of campsite I’ll use – I like it to be private, with LOTS of woods around it. But more and more, even starting back when I was around 15 and still camping with my folks, it’s harder to find sites like that. Everything is tailored to the motor homes.

    I would say it’s been about 13 yrs. since I’ve slept in a tent.

    Oh quite a few years ago. Bailey and I went with my mother, and Uncle Darryl. I love camping, but I am married to someone who likes the type of camping that has a bed, bathroom, walls…so yea, I have never gone real camping with him.
