Why I Love Camping


(guitar music) – Alright. So you don’t like camping. Fine. But I find that offensive. (lively mandolin music) Saying you don’t like camping is like saying you don’t like
food or music or stories. It’s just way too broad and frankly, it makes you sound kinda stupid There’s a 1,000 ways to
sleep under the stars and yes, that’s reason number one that camping rules. (whip cracking) Okay. Obviously the proximity
to nature thing is great. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. And yeah, you can camp
next to a fucking iceberg. This guy did it in Iceland. You ever cook dinner in the woods? It’s great! Look how much fun these guys are having. And let’s not forget about campfires. You can drink whatever you want. You’re not going anywhere. Building campfires is great. Sitting at campfires is great. And S’mores. People have been sitting around
campfires telling stories since the dawn of time. Why? It’s a lot of fun. And even the shittiest songs are fun to sing around a campfire. You know what you need for a campfire? Wood. Look at this old dude. He’s like a 100 years old
and he’s still whacking away. Then the embers die down and you go to bed. And you get to wake up to the sunrise. It’s the best feeling in the world. (whip cracking) And you know why it rules? Because you get to go to the swimming hole or a cave or the top of a mountain tomorrow morning. And hot springs. Hot springs. They’re like God’s jacuzzis. (whip cracking twice) Hey, maybe you want to
just sit around camp and get deep with an old friend. That’s fine. You do you. And here’s another thing. This shit is cheap. (whip cracking) 25 bucks you can get a
million-dollar ocean view. Check out this spot I was in last weekend. You don’t have to be a
full-blown gear nut like me. All you really need is a sleeping bag, a bag of trail mix and a pair of sneakers. Everything else is optional. (whistling) And while we’re on the subject of nudity. Did I mention that outdoor sex is about the greatest thing there is? You can be as loud as you want and there’s literally no
one around to hear you. (loud moaning and whip cracking) The campsite is probably one
of the only places in the world where men and women can be
as uncivilized as they like and still get laid. But I don’t want to get gross
and dirty and covered in bugs. Glamping is perfectly alright. Who wouldn’t want to sleep in a feather bed in the wilderness. (whip cracking multiple times) Maybe you just want to
spend some time alone. And then you get the
best thing nature offers. Pure silence. But let’s get real for a moment. Most of us are going to go camping with our friends and family. And that’s more than just a shared hobby. When you venture into the
wilderness with people, you’re telling them
that you truly, deeply, want to enjoy their company. And there aren’t very many places left where you can find that kind of honesty. (whip cracking) (light lounge music) – It’s just so sad what’s
happening over there. – Oh yeah, um hmmm. (frenzied music) Hmmmm. You don’t know the half of it. (light lounge music)
