Today when I take my own kids camping like I did when I was young, we actually cheat you could say
Back when I was a kid we used to go camping in the fall months. This would usually happen right as summer was about to end and the weather was starting to cool off a bit. At night it would get a bit cold and we would light a campfire. We had a really nice fireplace in our home back when I was a kid, and I was expecting the campfire to be just like having a fireplace, but it being outdoors. This was not the case! The fireplace at home was way better than this campfire. I am not sure why I thought that a campfire would be just as good as the fireplace we had at home. The campfire was nice, but it just didn’t give off the same warmth or feel as a nice old fashioned fireplace. The fireplace we used to have at home was one of those authentic ones. Not one of those electric fireplaces. At the time electric fireplaces were not even a part of technology. So in order to even have a fireplace, you had to have a real and true natural fireplace. Today when I take my own kids camping like I did when I was young, we actually cheat you could say. We go in a camper and at night, we do not sit outdoors in front of a campfire for too long. We go inside the camper and I have a portable space heater that keeps us warm throughout the night. The portable space heater is way better than a campfire.
