Thanks for sharing Canonman. I like getting out and away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Be it the beach mountains or somewhere in between. The more remote the happier I am.

For me it is solitude, nature, scenery and camp cooked food... nothing like bacon, eggs and pancakes, steaks, burgers... everything tastes better cooked outside.

Yup I have to agree. I think the food cooked outside is a psycological thing, but I will go with what you said Bob

Huntme, you better be careful with where you're going with this...(well, maybe we could use a chapter or two )
This will pertain more about snow-birding than actual camping, but still along the same lines. If I announced loudly in our neighborhood that happy-hour would commence in 15 minutes I would have a total of three people on our deck. Happy hour in Florida is every day at 4:00 and we almost always have 10-16 people. If I happen mention that DW and I are headed to the Alva diner for breakfast in the morning, no less than 8 people will agree that it is a good idea and will join us....it is 40 miles away.
Everybody knows everybody. We take care of each other and most of us are anxious to get out and "go somewhere, do something, be somebody."
At an RV park in Indiana they have what they call a 'pitch-in' every Wednesday evening. 60-75 people is the norm for the what is usually called a potluck dinner.
Have a fire at dusk in your back yard at home and neighbors complain. Start your campfire in the RV park and three different neighbors will bring beer and snacks.
Need I say more?

Glad to see so many folks responding. And, so many reasons we enjoy our RV lifestyle.
My wife has some mobility issues that would severely limit our opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors without our RV. One of these days we'll get down south and visit with Jim and Brenda at the 4:00 deck party
A southern trip is on the bucket list. In the meantime, we'll keep camping and enjoying the life!

We live, "In the woods" on a small lake, have nearly 40,000 acres of state forest beyond the lake, so every day is "a camping day". Our house has a glass room on the back so we can "sit inside while we're outside, in air conditioned or heated comfort".... Why would we leave this to go sit in a tiny box with windows??? Because camping is still "getting away from the pressures and enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer"....

We make one or two "big trips" a year, otherwise, it's spending a weekend or usually, 3 or 4 days during the week while everyone else is at work, at one of our favorite lakes, fish when we want, read and relax when we want, eat what we want (our docs can't find us or scold us for cheating on the diet)....

Life is good at home, life is better "in that tiny box with windows".....
