I love camping. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s cheap.
For a fistful of dollars, you can get a million dollar view and memories to match.
Last summer, I took my kids camping for a night – just the three of us. We fell asleep listening to a babbling brook, and woke up to the sound of birds singing. We went for a hike, roasted marshmallows at all hours, and had the best time.
I think it cost $35 all-in.
I recently came across a site called Shelter Co. Have you heard of them? At first, I was intrigued. They provide an upscale camping experience:
Looks amazing, right? Even if you’re not really a camper?
But then I read further and almost choked on my iced tea when I saw the price: there is a $2,000 minimum for a stay. TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS. Who are these people??? Seriously, who is going to pay $2,000 to sleep in a tent in California when you could pay $20 for the same exact experience?
I mean…really? I’m all about a little luxury now and then, but I almost cannot believe that this is true. Is Shelter Co a real site?
Thoughts? What would you pay for this? Is it me, or is this crazy?
