One morning, while in our Escape Campervan, I noticed something that made us love the Escape Campervan type of travel even more. We woke up, made a fire, cooked bacon and eggs in about 20 minutes (meal menu here), and used the next hour to sit by the fire, drinking our coffee, and watching the girls playing around the campsite. When it was time to go, we took about 10 minutes to clean up and leave no trace, closed the Escape Campervan doors, and headed out!
Why am I mentioning this? Because it struck me how our tenting neighbors next to us were making breakfast while we slept in. Then they spent the hour we were sitting by the fire to fold, take down and pack up their car.
So many times when I talk to people and they mention how they dislike camping, the reason they always give is that it is just too much work! This is one of the main draws of camping in a campervan for me. The time you would have spent packing, setting up, and breaking down a tent, instead can be spent doing what you came out there for, to soak in nature and enjoy the outdoors!
