I like camping because you can just be. You can just sit if you want, say "hey" to the people walking by your site,or stare at the firepit at any time of the day for as long as you want.You can study a bug crawling around the picnic table. It's expected to that making meals takes time and will automatically taste amazing because you did it outdoors. You can walk really slow to the shower and then even slower on the way back, watching the stars. You can walk around in your jammies and sweatshirt. You can be dirty or take 15 showers. You can hike fanatically, getting all sweaty and out of breath; or you can mosey, looking at all the different plants taking over the woods and admiring the sun filtering down through the leaves of the trees. Camping is freedom from chores, from the things you "should be doing", and camping is what makes me happy.
