Camping...





I generally don’t make any pretense when it comes to camping: it’s just not for me.

We never loaded up the station wagon and pitched a tent when I was growing up (for which, as a kid, I was immensely grateful).  It might have been something on which I missed out in my childhood. Or maybe not…


Still, in spite of my resistance to the idea, something about summer and vacations and warm nights does have its appeal.




When I heard about Shelter Co. – it was like all of my dreams came true.  Camping and someone else could do all of the work.   A pop-up camping service that puts together everything for you (at a location of your choice!).  European style canvas tents, 400 thread count bedding and Pendleton blankets and a real bed! That is the concept behind this company.     Now, this is the kind of camping that I can wrap my head around.   If they could just take care of the wild animals and the potential of the mosquitoes, we would be all set.

I wish the Boy Scouts had invented glamping before I had to suffer through sleeping with a rock under my sleeping bag far too many times as a child. I always did enjoy the cooking on an open fire part of it though.

This is definitely my idea of camping. Do they also supply flushing toilets and warm water showers? Thanks. (Love those Pendleton blankets, but I prefer crispy 300 ct. percale sheets)

I am in agreement about the nature of camping and your preferences appeal to me. However, do you have a desert-island-sort-of-list of items you would like to take (have brought for you)? Books, champagne in ice, string quartet to play at twilight, pot of coq au vin on the camp fire, etc.; Things to confuse the wild beasts? Thank you for your wonderful images and writing. I am a grateful fan. David

If ever there was camping for Grant, this is the only way I would picture it.
