I'll be the first to admit that roughing it wouldn't be my first pick when it comes to planning for weekend getaways. However, there is something about camping that (with enough advanced notice for me to get my head into it) I really look forward to. I think that getting down to the basics and escaping the day-to-day is the most exciting part. I love cooking simple meals outdoors, s'mores, being so close to nature (the scent of the trees, the sound of the air in the morning), and how the whole experience brings everyone so much closer because of the shared responsibilities. Once in a while taking a breather from all the technology and all the modern day conveniences (ok most, not all since we had wi-fi, electricity, and running water) is a really really good thing. No matter what degree of "roughness" - whether you enjoy the gritty type of camping (survived and actually enjoyed it), or glamping it up like we just did - simple summer escapes are a must for the mind, body and soul.
