Does Driveway Camping Count?

Postby caseydog » Thu Jul 22, 2010 10:50 am

I set a goal to camp every month in 2010, but I have not camped in July... yet. It's been too stinking hot to enjoy camping around here this month.

So, if I sleep in my TD one night in the driveway, do you think that should count toward my goal?

Will it count if I cook and eat outside that evening before sleeping in the TD? :lol:

I'd say as long as you don't allow yourself to retreat to the air conditioned comfort of the house, yes. Ya have to rough it a bit to really be camping, right? :lol:

of course it would count...Duh...

I went out in the garage the other day to make sure my camper was still there, you know what I mean...

I laid down on the bed, just to study the intended locations of cabinets and what not, you understand...

well, I must have dosed off...guess that counts as my first camping experience in the new camper :lol:

napping while camping is still camping

camping while napping?........ gray area. Like what is a tear drop..,

I have my camper out on the driveway today, air conditioner on... just in case I need a "camping experience" later.

Driveway camping counts the same way as backyard camping
If you are out of the house, it's camping :thumbsup:

From Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary:

Intransitive verb
1. to make camp or occupy a camp
2. to live temporarily or outdoors --often used with out
3. to take up one’s quarters: Lodge
4. to take up one’s position: settle down --often used with out <camp out in the library for the afternoon>

Transitive verb
to put into a camp; also: Accomodate

:thumbsup: Yes, I do believe you're covered in at least one of those definitions.

Happy camping! :)
