I was very pleased to find out that I can take my family camping and still be comfortable
I would like to take my family camping. The problem is, I really don’t like being hot or cold. I’m most comfortable when the atmosphere around me is about seventy-five degrees. That complicates our camping trip more than I expected it to. We don’t have a camper with air conditioning and I don’t want to rent a cabin. I’m sure that if I looked hard enough, I could find a cabin with air conditioning. But, then I wonder, why bother? If I am going to take my family camping, I want them to have the whole outdoor experience, including tents, sleeping bags, and bathing in a freshwater lake. I see no real point in allowing them to spend a day on a lake and then have a home cooked meal and air conditioning at night. We can save our money and do that at home. I thought that spring camping in the mountains could be comfortable. I thought the temperatures would be mild enough. I actually started to plan the trip. Then, winter turned into summer almost overnight. We really had no spring. But, fall is coming early, and, I am thinking about an autumn camping trip in the mountains. But, then again, if we experience Indian Summer that weekend, I’ll be miserable the entire time. I was talking to my husband about this and he told me that there are portable air conditioners made that can be used for tents. I can even buy one that is battery operated, and some of the batteries are even rechargeable. I was very pleased to find out that I can take my family camping and still be comfortable. Of course, I will try not to use the portable air conditioner. But, I will feel better knowing I have one with me.
