What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 345: Happy Camper


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

It will probably surprise no one that I’m not what you’d call a camping enthusiast. I love nature, and being around green things makes me instantly happier, but I cannot abide sharing my space – especially my sleeping space – with creepy crawlies. Therefore, camping is just not for me (unless we’re talking about something like this). That said, I know many people who enjoy the activity, so this one’s for them! Now where did I put that bug spray…

I see what you did there! By Ramshackles
I once saw a mosquito this size on Naked & Afraid. I don’t care how much the prize money is, those people are nuts!
There it is. That’s the other reason I don’t camp.
This handmade carbon steel campfire pan is almost cool enough to make me want to hit the road! Almost. By NewJerseyCraftStore
Very cute personalized travel sign, and it would also be a great privacy tool if you instead ordered it to read “The Clowns.” By ThePaintedOwl89
Do I even want to know?
This is much more my speed. By MarvlingBrosLtd
While a bit off topic, this marvel appeared in my search (presumably because it looks like she’s wearing a tent), and I couldn’t resist.
For my digestive system to function properly, but I require things like doors. and walls, and porcelain. Oh, and toilet paper. AND WHY DOES IT NEED TO BE REFLECTIVE???

  1. Oh my. I will now be having etsomnia flash backs every time I pass a camper on the road.

  2. The campfire pan does look neat but heavy. Too heavy for a bug out.

  3. I sure miss my RV days and I might get back into an RV for one last trip to Riverside CA and back. I have seen two of the Motorcycle RVs in use camping. Yes, there are a number of companies that make RVs for motorcycle people. I have ruled out tent camping some years ago. Hal

  4. Another thing we have in common is enjoying exploring nature but without sleeping or dealing with daily ablutions in the great outdoors. My childhood vacations were always in our family’s touring caravan but at least the walls were solid and there was a distance between where we slept and the ground. Still, I have not maintained that tradition as an adult because – spoiled and prissy though it may be – I like my creature comforts too much. Hot water, a flushing toilet, and some degree of privacy and safety are important to me.

    Also, I completely juddered at the thought of reusable butt wipes. I can only take my eco-friendliness so far.
