camping redefined?

Posted by on January 24 at 15:54 PM

I was drooling over the travel section in the NYTimes, when I came across a blurb about “refined” camping with The Four Seasons (wha???).

Each of the 15 tents at the campsite is as luxurious as a five-star hotel room; each is 581 square feet and has a hand-hammered copper tub, high-speed Internet, twice-daily housekeeping and even a safe.

Okay, but are campers still forced to shit in a bucket? Important questions go unanswered!

Another popular “campsite” in Missoula (ironically named Tent City) features feather beds and a butler to do pesky camping chores for you like gathering firewood and interacting with your family.

Has anyone heard of this before? I yearn to know more!

Normally, I would be against the idea of drunken yahoos blazing at high speed right through the middle of a campsite in their four-wheel-drive truck, roof lights and shotguns blazing, flattening tents and terrifying (or killing) the occupants.

But suddenly it seems appropriate.

Follow your dreams, you can reach your goals.

Hope you come back soon!!

Your site is amaizing. Can I share some resources with you?
