I've been on several adventures this summer. I love the idea of camping, but so far I haven't enjoyed myself while spending the night. I haven't been comfortable sleeping and can't afford one of those fancy roof-top tents. I really dislike not being able to shower easily, especially after a long day on a dusty trail or working up a sweat hiking. I absolutely despise the mosquitos. I don't particularly care for spraying myself down with repellent, but I'll do it. Finally, there's no way my wife will go camping without an RV so I basically have to go solo.
Is overloading not for me?
Does anybody here run off-road adventures where we use motels?
Anybody have suggestions for improving the experience and convincing my wife to go?
I just got back from a 10 day adventure that was awesome. I used motels and relatives' couches the whole trip. I ran 6 Jeep Badge of Honor Trails including Black Bear Pass. I want to do that again next summer - but no camping. Would I find any takers in this community?
