It has been a while. The first weekend of June was the last time I went camping and I’m feeling antsy. I want to get back out there, but I have a whole month to wait until the October Valley of Fire Popup Portal Rally. I can feel the itchiness all around me and then I saw this little advertisement from KOA.
I don’t need therapy. I just need to go camping!
And it’s so true. But WHY? Why do I feel this itchiness when it has been too long between camping trips? What I love about camping is setting up camp and sitting outside of the camper under the awning. It’s just sitting. Why can’t I do that at home?
Believe me, I have TRIED to relax and just sit outside in the shade. I have even put up a hammock in my backyard to entice me to do just that.
No matter how many beautiful and relaxing spots I have set up in my backyard, I have not been able to recreate the feeling of sitting outside my camper in the shade. I have no idea WHY I feel like that. All I know is that despite my many attempts to just sit outside and enjoy the birds in my backyard, I still feel itchy when I haven’t gone camping in a while. Just a little over a month until I can go again…
