Turn Down The TV, Please. We're Trying To Enjoy The Great Outdoors

I went camping a few times this summer and one thing that became clear very quickly is that people are increasingly dragging the great indoors with them to the great outdoors. While we were using tents and left our various gadgets at home, we were certainly in the minority in places we went camping. What's most interesting, though, is the article points out that it's not the younger generation that's driving this trend, but older campers who want to make sure they can email the grandkids while enjoying "the great outdoors," sitting comfortably in their air conditioned RV, complete with satellite television, DVD player and (of course) ubiquitous WiFi. There's nothing wrong with camping however you want to camp, of course (assuming you're not bugging anyone else), but at some point, people may question whether or not it's really "camping" anymore.
