There are art snobs, and there are art snobs who camp... I prefer the latter, as they seem to be able to get their hands a little dirtier, relax a little easier, and could even be a tad less neurotic, maybe...
But the real question is...can they cook?
The most exciting thing for me about camping, is the food. Being a foodie, there is nothing better than being in the great outdoors, PREPARED. That means you may need to marinate some salmon in ginger, garlic, a bit of salt and green onion, (maybe a splash of coconut milk to keep it moist), and wrap it in foil. It is delish. With that I would make some sliced potatoes with soy sauce and butter..YUM..Don't forget your campers version of an ice cream maker! It is shaped like a soccer ball and you can gently kick back and forth to your friends or family. You can get them at R.E.I., and they make the trip that much better. Be sure to fill with fresh nectarines, and cream, a teeny bit of sugar, and a voila! The best camping EVER...Are you as excited to get outside as I ? I wish we could all go camping together out here, on the water, in the Northwest.
You would LOVE it.
