Can camping be romantic?

A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

my wife, when a child, woke up one night whilst on the annual caravan trip north with the concern of "why is the caravan rocking". That story gets repeated way too often (for my mother-in-law anyway, father-in-law enjoys the memories I think!!!) some 30+ years later!

We're about to embark on 3 month oddessey... when they say it's dry in the outback, I don't think they're talking about the lack of water! :(

Rocking caravans

Is there a way to stop caravan's rocking? Apart from abstinence :oops: :oops: Or maybe nicking off into the bushes would be better? Everytime we have stayed in a van, it's definitely been an issue, especially with the kids in the van as well :shock: .

Hadn't considered that aspect :shock: - how about camper trailers, much movement there?

Thank God we have a tent I would say..... (and separate bedrooms for us and the little bloke)

Unfortunately CT's rock even with the brakes on. Of course I have only experienced this from my wife and I climbing up and down from the bed.

So, a romatic camping weekend involves chocolate, honey, red thai duck curry, wine and drink, cheese, marshmallows, strawberries, a nice rug or doona, a quick trip into the bushes, a rockin' van and terrified children. :shock:

There is a quite an obession with food here!

Nah! No kids (or other people for matter) and you are 99% there.

Mind you I don't how the kids will react. "Don't worry kids were just taking the camper trailer for a run"

Can camping be romantic

Well first aniversary was a show in Sydney, dinner, night in a hotel etc.

The last aniversary was camping at Chichester Dam - spot by the river, no near neighbours (so what if there is some rocking it's all about position) and an earl :?# y night.

When my Gf and i went camping we had a nice quiet spot around 50 metres away from anyone else and then the familes came. Which meant alot of kids around although there was no "Hanky Panky" we still had a good time with it being just us. Romance does'nt mean shagging although it certainly is welcomed :*** . I say find a nice spot by the water, setup, relax for the day cook some dinner with some Beverages :beer and enjoy the time alone in a beautiful place. We have only ever been camping twice... both times without a radio and told people not to call us unless it was urgent. You will find that at the end of the weekend you haven't missed music and you haven't missed your mobile because "You're Relaxed!!!!"

Cheers

I hope DH is his initials :*** and not what its short for. Wouldnt make for a good start to a romantic holiday if it is.

If my wife planned a camping holiday as a surprise, I think her biggest issues would be gaining my trust in her choice of location, and gaining my trust in her ability to plan it correctly and not forget anything. It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it in the bush, without overpacking. He could even drive and you give directions.

LONG LIVE THE CAMPING WOMAN! Don't kill him with shock tho.
