..but here ya go..)
Camping for me is not so much having the perfect ultralight tent or hiking the greatest length of miles.
Because camping is often an individualistic experience there are few right or wrong ways to camp.
Camping is such a powerful and transformative tool in my life because its manifestation is malleable.
Each camping venture is what I want it to be: a movie night with friends – a romantic getaway with my husband – an opportunity to uniquely experience an environment – a family board game night – or a solitary time for reflection and recreation.
I will never stop camping in the remote reaches of our planet but I love urban camping.
Urban camping is fulfilling without having to leave my proverbial backyard because I am positioning myself in a markedly different way in my environment.
This change in space that allows me a change in perspective that forever surprises – delights and teaches.
(ed:..the writer of this piece clearly loves camping/sleeping in tents much much more than i do..and personally i find this ‘thing’ to be bloody ‘barking’..eh..?..
and could lean towards describing the above extract as pretentious-twaddle….
..but there is no accounting for taste..eh.?..
..and should the reader decide to grab their tent/pegs and seek out an urban rooftop..?..fill yer boots..!..eh..?..
..let us know how you get on..
..and just be careful you don’t get arrested for trespassing..eh..?)
