Staycation Means Errands

CJ Chilvers says go camping.

It’s totally OK to do nothing. Your life could use a pause button. But even on vacation, we feel the need to run errand after errand to keep family and/or friends happy. That’s not needed with camping. You’re expected to hang out on a hammock for a few hours, getting up only for food, drinks, or something fun. Even at resorts, someone is always trying to interrupt this real fun, for their idea of fun. No thanks.

This is one reason we take our kids camping every summer. They get to play, and parents get to lay around and relax. While there is a bunch of work to making meals, getting people dressed properly for the day, and other things, there is also so much more downtime that makes it awesome.
