We loaded up with enough extra gas to keep the motor, and the AC running all weekend long, and then drove deep into the forest where we could be all alone with nature.
What can you do when you don’t like camping, but are crushing on a girl who loves camping? That was the question I was presented with, and the only answer I could think of was to get an RV. Some of those things are like houses on wheels, so I thought it would be a nice compromise for us. We could still spend a few days out in nature, under the stars, next to the campfire, and all that crap, but we would also have a sturdy shelter, with electricity, and a toilet, and a working air conditioner. I don’t like bugs, I don’t like heat and humidity, and I don’t like pooping on the ground, so an air conditioned RV with a bathroom was the best possible option here. They are not cheap, but I got one used for a good price, and then took it to a garage for some extra work, a tune up, and a recharge on the freon in the air conditioner. We loaded up with enough extra gas to keep the motor, and the AC running all weekend long, and then drove deep into the forest where we could be all alone with nature. The day was very nice, if a bit warm, and we walked for hours before returning to cool off in the air conditioned camper. She said that it felt like cheating, but by the end of the night she was singing a different tune. There were swarms of biting bugs that came out after dark, and being inside the cool air conditioning of the RV saved the entire weekend.
