Andyman...great write-up! I know all the feelings to which you refer. I'll confess that I don't camp anymore. Always cheap motels for me. I've stayed in some doozies, that's for sure.
Cmathias....you're doing the right thing, placing the family and home obligations first. I did that for years, was fortunate enough to retire early (at 46), and do some things that many others only dream of. I make a WHOLE lot less money nowadays, but plenty to keep me happy. One of the secrets is to NEVER compare yourself and what you have to anyone else. Our only true challenges and competition should come from within.
I'm precisely who I want to be. Wouldn't change one friggin' thing!
No truer words have ever been spoken.
