Last October, my wife and I decided to go camping for a week.
We knew the weather was going to be cold, so we packed an electric blanket and a space heater.
We’ve been using a space heater in the tent for years. It allows us to go camping during the winter months, when the parks and the trails are less crowded and packed with people. Camping during the colder months is actually something that I prefer. I enjoy hiking and being outdoors much more when the weather is cold and frigid. My wife and I always go to the same state park. They have excellent camping sites that are large with water and electricity at each one. All of the restrooms have showers and toilets and heaters. When it is cold outside, it’s nice to take a shower with the heat running. When my wife and I went camping last October, none of the heaters in the bathroom worked. The first time we took a shower, I tried to turn on the radiant heater. I turned the dial all the way to the on position and I set the timer. Nothing seemed to help, because the radiant heater didn’t start working. When I complained to the park staff, they suggested using a different restroom and shower instead of offering to check on the heater and fix the problem. That was the first time in a while that I have been disappointed with a trip to the state park. I honestly felt that the staff could have been much more helpful
