You should have seen the last thread I OP’d. The patients took over the Mental Asylum by the 2nd post ..
I did.

FB has a column called RealClear Satire. You'd be amazed how many people do not know what Satire is.


Love satire with Borowitz of New Yorker my favorite. But it's reserved for those who got brains and can pick it up quickly.

Off topic here but on point to your last post, it seems they are not just opening the national forests around Yosemite for oil exploration, but right into Sequoia NP itself.

I don't get it; that is, putting out all that junk; pardon me, decorations. We have out 2 chairs and a small (not 9 by 12 that kills all the grass) mat and that's it.

Another man's junk, someone else's treasure, err, decor. LOL!

"Excoriated" - good one! I had to look it up.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

There may be nothing they want to go see, maybe they are locals so there effort goes into making their site feel like vacation for their short time there.

That's a strong possibility, LOL. Again, I'm not judging them and it's NOMB. I love camp host campsites that looks like it's their own back/front yard.

LOL! Good point - glancing around my house and yard, they are pretty basic, too. I'm sort of a low-maintenance person, I guess? :-) But I still enjoy pondering a well set-up (or just plain cute) campsite. I purchased our Clam screen house after being camped with a "teardrop trailer rally" and seeing how they utilized their outdoor space.

There's always something to be learned!

We must be minimalist if we started tent camping.

Then we bought an RV and the wife started coming along.

Then when we visit Camping World to replenish our propane, the wifey started getting ideas...

And it's downhill from there.

Maybe this discussion hints at why boondockers are so happy ... no other campers are around to see how the boondockers are camping, and no other campers are around for the boondockers to see how the other campers are camping. [emoticon]

When I had a pop-up, forum users would ask how long it takes to set up camp.
Average if I remember was 30 min to one hour.

Me, if the site is level, 7-8 minutes from turning off the key to walking up to the bath house to wash hands.

Have always been a minimalist to camping.
Nothing out unless it is being used.
Once used it gets put away.
Ready to roll at a moments notice.

Now that we have a class B+/C-, have a two minute set-up time.
Never hook up to water or sewer.
No toad so want to be mobile at any time.
Only hook up to 15/20 amp.
