My husband loved camping, hiking long before we met. Um, me not so much. My idea of camping was a Motel 6. HA! As we have aged we are doing the adventure together. We talked it over, buying the Jeep, type of camping we wanted to try. Over a month ago we did our first off grid, no toilets, no water, hauled everything we needed in the Jeep. Slept in a tent, the site was beautiful. After that trip we decided that was not the type of camping we wanted to do. Now we will try camp sites with water and toilets.
Perhaps the key to your question is, did or do you make the adventure decisions together. Encourage the sense of adventure.
Just my 2 cents
Pretty much mine as well. She loves camping, loves remote camping, loves road trips, loves travelling. Banging trough the woods, up over an around things at 3 mph all day? not so much! lol.my wife enjoys the destination. not so much the journey sometimes.
As long as the overlanding trip leads to some good kayaking she's on board, she looks the sites and the adventures along the way, but she has to now kayaking and good camping is coming.You love the trail, what about them ? They on board or not ? Any advice ?
My wife is on board 100%. She is co-pilot and navigator.You love the trail, what about them ? They on board or not ? Any advice ?
...yup, all that and a porta-potty. I purchased an extra large RTT so we had room for a queen mattress as well as the porta-potty off to the side. No getting out of the tent in the middle of the night or early morning. Making our ladies happy on adventures is key to a successful experience...The rtt and fridge with a complete kitchen, awning, and comfortable chairs etc... tends to make the long sketchy trails to remote campsites with questionable bear activity go from just tolerable for her to being a fun weekend adventure for us. Happy wife happy life.
