Yamping (Yard Camping)
Have you heard the Kacey Musgraves song: “My House”? It’s about bringing “My house to you”. Nothing beats a little Yamping (Yard Camping) at a friends house, your own, or a business.
There are so many reasons to Yamp. You may not have much time off of work and can’t get away long enough to go on a “real vacation”. You may be testing out your new RV or doing some maintenance. Maybe you have friends or family in town and need a place for them to stay. Or, maybe you are visiting friends or family and are Yamping on their property. Whatever your reason to Yamp, Yamping is a great way to spend quality time with the people you care about.
Another great reason to Yamp is to make camping with your family a priority, even if it means you have to do it in the yard. Studies show that camping creates a bond within a family and there is truth behind the quote “a family that camps together, stays together.” If it’s at your home, you can get creative and truly make it a memorable experience.
You can even buy cheap property in scenic locations and Yamp with your RV over the weekend on their vacation property. Many times this is an inexpensive way to have a 2nd home, a lake cabin, or a hunting shack.
Light the campfire in the yard, pull out the smores and let the stories roll.
