RE: How do you share camping expenses?

Wow, some of you are awfully judgmental. I am talking to you bob. Yeah, we are explorers, not campers nor travelers. I knew there was a reason I do not frequent this site much. Others have had similar experiences here. Mods, please delete.

RE: How do you share camping expenses?

We did pay. We are half-sisters and not that close. She is too verbally abusive. We did show her an awesome time: Oregon Coast, Highway 138 waterfalls, John Day area, Newberry, Smith Rock,etc. I wasn’t asking about the past. That is done. I am asking what people do when camping with others when sharing a site if there is adequate space. Lesson learned for sure.

How do you share camping expenses?

My husband and I invited my sister to go on a 2-3 week camping trip with us. We have been to many of the places she and I planned to visit but I thought it would help her readjust to being back home in the PNW. Well, I was distracted about water issues and running a small business so shined on her proposals. Besides, she yells at me and I take the path of least resistance. Somehow, I agreed to have us pay for a site and she would pay the extra car fee. Yeah, I know, stupid. Her reasoning was that we have a full-sized truck and a pop up truck camper and she has a small SUV plus tent. Essentially, we have a similar footprint. I should have nipped that proposal right away but, I was distracted. Toward the end of the trip, I tallied up the costs and whoa, there, we were paying 3 times as much. When I mentioned this to her, she blew up and threw money at me. She has been cold and distant since. My take is that you pay for the site, and it is not based on the size of your RV. If a class A or a 5er or trailer can occupy a standard site (no hookups), they pay the same as anyone else. I have never really thought about the fair or unfair aspects. We are all camping no matter the size or type of RV. Needless to say, there will be no more camping trips with her. I have learned to say no, now, more often than I used to. What do you all do when faced with this situation?

RE: Dark Sky Camping

Where are you? The darkest part of the US is the Massacre Rim in the Nevada-CA-Oregon border. Never been there but the write up says, it is so dark that the dense starlight can cast a shadow. We were there last Spring. We travelled on 8A, a decent gravel road that bisects Sheldon Antelope Range. We were the only ones there. It took us several hours from where we left 140 until we came to a paved road just east of California border. We did encounter a road grader just before pavement. Very isolated but beautiful. We should hav3 spent the night but it had been raining so the skies would have been obscured.

RE: 2019 Summer

We plan to stay home as we live in the Pacific Northwest on 6 acres. We travel during the shoulder seasons. Happy camping.
