Glamping....I Think I've Been All Wrong...

Just last night I learned a new word...


And not only did I learn the word, but now I want to do the thing.

When I was a kid my parents took us 3 different times "Out West" in an RV to tour around states we'd never been to and camp in national parks along the way.  We went to places like Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, South Dakota, and Montana.  And when we toured around, we rolled Winnebago style.

This one above might seriously have been the exact one we had a couple of times.  

The Minnie Winnie.  

My sister and I used to sleep in that part over the driver's cab, and it was fun to ride up there even though we weren't allowed to do it very often.  I have good memories in the Minnie Winnies...good times...good times.

My mom always said tent camping wasn't really her thing...and more than that I'm not sure it was my dad's thing either.

I like it though, and so does my Hubs.  Tid Bit has done it a couple of times and we're gonna camp in Montana in a couple of weeks with some friends with both of our kids and their 3 kids as well.  Tent camping...5 kids under age 7...good times....I think....maybe...hopefully.  I am confident though that we will not be glamping.

I've realized today with this new addition to my vocabulary that apparently I've been doing it wrong all along, because there's nothing about "Glamping" that I don't think I'd like.  No...scratch that...that I don't think I'd LOVE!

Glamping = Glam + Camping

Allow me to show you what I've run across....glamping goodness to be sure.

Yes...I think I'd like glamping.  It looks so wonderful that I bet bugs don't even come in your tent when you Glamp.  I bet coffee serves itself to you in bed when you Glamp.  I bet you sleep well and don't have a sore neck when you Glamp.  And I'm sure that I'm now just coming up with new reasons to say the word....Glamp.  Do you think if you've already done it before then you've "glumped" or just "glamped?"  Either way...I've not done it at all.  But I will...even if it's in my back yard...

I will go glamping.

So now I have to ask you you camp or glamp?  And if you do it with kids then show me some comment love and give me some tips on how to make it as fun and painless as possible with a 5 year old and a 16 month old?!  I think though that "kids" and "glamping" may not be allowed in the same sentence....for sure one likely interferes with the other.

By the way, my new favorite thing might just be Pinterest.  You really must check out Pinterest.  And you can check me out on Pinterest HERE. Pinterest is a place where basically you can create boards of loads of your favorite things with links to where they came from.  So for say recipes, you "pin" the picture and it links to the recipe, a picture and it links to the tutorial.  It's fabulous, but you have to be invited to do it.  So if you want to be invited, send me an email with your name and email  address to LifeforDessert dot gmail dot com and I'll send you an invite.  You will love it.  It's where I found and compiled all of the above glamping.

I was catching up on Parks and Recreation last night and saw a very real version of glamping. Lol.

Very cool! I'm not too much of a tent person either. I had never heard the term but I guess we did sort of glamp in South Africa. They've got some really nice tents over there!
