It’s not like we had a portable heater either, so I knew the entire camping trip was going to be without any kind of HVAC or heating technology.
When I was younger, I had nothing but fond memories of my brother and I going on a camping trip with our parents. As a kid, I really enjoyed going on these camping trips, and we went on them year round. Then we ended up taking a break from going camping until I was a teen. By the time I was a teen, I had changed a lot. When our parents took us on a camping trip, I found myself disliking the entire experience. Years passed without another camping trip, and then out of the blue my father told us we were going to go on another camping trip this Sunday. I didn’t mind too much, and figured I just had a bad experience last time. We arrived at our camping site and set up our tents. Within a few hours, I was beginning to remember why I dislike camping. For one, my father chose to go camping in the middle of winter, a nice and windy winter for that matter, when it was close to freezing. The wind made it a million times worse, and made it feel well below freezing. I was really regretting leaving the house and the furnace behind it. It’s not like we had a portable heater either, so I knew the entire camping trip was going to be without any kind of HVAC or heating technology. In my sleeping bag, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get comfortable on the cold and hard ground. So I was tired and cold. Last, I really didn’t like hearing all of the twigs snapping, and knowing there could be a bear or any other dangerous animal out there. As a kid, I thought I was invincible, but as an adult, I know better, and I prefer not to take the risk.
