Are camping tent vacations really becoming more popular? Could you be missing out on savings of over 60% off your vacation because of you do not know where to start? Many people are discovering camping tent options close to home to be fun, safe and cheap alternatives to fly-drive-hotel vacations.

Even Recession has not dampened growing of Outdoor Camping
Research in 2000 by Roper Starch Worldwide Inc. for the Outdoor Recreation in America 2000 report published by the Recreation Roundtable found that 19% of Americans hiked in the previous 12 months, 17% camped in tents in campgrounds, 9% backpacked, and 8% camped in the wilderness.

In 2006, the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA) reported that camping in tents is the seventh most popular recreation activity of the U.S. population age 6 and older. According to the SGMA, over 42.2 million Americans camped in tents in 2009 and this trend is growing at a rate of over 6.5% even with the recession.

Today, there are an estimated 8,000 public and another 8,000 privately-owned campgrounds catering to the needs of 61 million campers using tents, travel trailers, motor homes or other types of RVs in the US.
Similar trends have been reported for Canada and several European countries. 2010 Data for the UK shows that overall camping and caravanning was 78% more popular than visiting Spain.

Contributory factors include:
* Growing interest in green/environmentally friendly and "nature" vacations
* Improvements in camping tents designs by manufacturers leading to increased popularity of, 3, 4, 5 or 6 person tents, family tents and other luxury tents for those who want to go "glamping" (glamour camping)
* Upgrades to campsites, including shower facilities, electricity and cable, Wi-Fi. Some of the fancier campsites even have water slides, boating, horseback riding and kayaking equipment.

Gone are the days when camping was synonymous to hiking or roughing it out in the wilderness. As indicated above, camping is rapidly becoming an alternative convenient family vacation.
When compared to RVs or the traditional fly-drive-hotel vacations camping in tents typically comes out at a fraction of the cost.

Airlines travel with its high costs and associated hassles, is making many people to look at camping as an alternative.
* Someone looking for an RV needs to lay out several thousands to buy one or hundreds for rental. Then there is the high cost of pulling these to your campsite.
* For a couple of hundred dollars, you can buy a luxury camping tent for your family. Daily rates to camp in most private campgrounds are under $ 50 and can be as low as $ 15 compared to hundreds for hotels.

Possible locations include national parks, state parks, local parks and government recreational areas. You can legally camp anywhere on national forest land and the maps of the National Forests typically show all the places you have to choose from. Many cities allow over-night (dry) camping in their parks. Your local Chamber of Commerce or police station can help you about free places to spend a night.
* Free campgrounds offer other benefits besides saving you money. They are usually found in peaceful and scenic settings. Some are located by lakes or rivers and offer numerous recreational opportunities, such as boating, fishing, or water-skiing. You just need to do some homework, pack your camping tent and go enjoy nature!

Explain for the Popularity of Free Stuffs and Freebie Sites on Industrialized Countries

Explain for the Popularity of Free Stuffs and Freebie Sites on Industrialized Countries




It’s ironic that people from rich countries are more cautious on spending rather than those living in the third world. You’ve ever read a book the millionaire next door that recalled about the attitude of rich people who economical and commercially fit. They were compared to those who were materially fit and carry out regularly. Isn’t it those who have those bulges have to experience to burn their calories? It’s sarcastic that people who need exercise are the ones who were not doing it. Also, people who were rich through hard work are very cautious on their expenses. They live under their mean. And this doesn’t include Hollywood superstars who were rich or those who won the lottery who became immediately millionaires.


People from rich nations like the United States and Japan where, despite all their wealth, They would still keep every penny and yen they get. In the US, It is not unusual for a man to have a coin purse so they would be able to pay the exact amount most of the time. The Americans and Japanese, despite their affluence, would not pay one penny or yen more than the actual price of any merchandise and would similarly demand that they get no less than their exact change.


And why do you think many Americans spend time clipping discount coupons out of newspapers? For them any discount, even if it is just 10 cents, still means they will be paying a little less for an item. If all discounts are added up, that can mean a pretty respectable saving. They would go to supermarket with the coupons they clipped and use them when paying for their purchases.


Sad to say this will not happen to my country. No one will go to the supermarket with a bag full of coupons. I myself won't bother to go to the store with those coupons. We even have a calendar from popular drug store with discount coupons. Maybe because the value of our currency is too low to give attention to or is it amor propio? (pride?) Culture? Whatever! No wonder we are still a third world country. A discount is a discount, even 1 centavo, 2 centavo, 3 centavos and so forth. And how much more if it is a freebie? Free stuffs or corporate give away. That doesn't mean that people who patronize them can't afford those items. It only shows that they value their money. Getting free samples so just in case they don't like the product, no one will be blamed for not buying a better one.

Conservative Blogs Are Gaining in Popularity

Conservative Blogs Are Gaining in Popularity

With conservative blogs increasing in popularity and growing in membership, more people are tuning into hear the alternative ideas and downplayed values. Today's all stars in the conservative political realm include big names likes Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham among others. After the '06 Democrats sweeping of Congress and the Senate the GOP has been forced to re-evalute it's stance on policy issues.

After this introspective period, the GOP has re-asserted its values in diminishing government, reducing taxes and balancing the budget. As the party in charge during the excesses that marked the middle of the decade, the GOP has had to remind voters and many politically astute entities that the platform of the Republican party is one of responsible government spending, contrary to the behavior of the Bush midterm legislators.

As the conservative movement gains momentum, due to the confusion occurring in the bailout procession, true conservatives start to voice their opinions and flex their muscle. In recent events, leaders like Lindsay Graham, Bobby Jindal and MItt Romney have voiced their oposition to the wasteful spending of recent weeks. This expression of responsible government lies in stark contrast to their own recent representative, George W. Bush. Although the current Republicans have worked hard to distance themselves from "W", his legacy of standing for very little conservative remains a blight on the conservative cause. Many conservatives are left wondering exactly what defined "W' as a conservative and are at a loss for an answer that clarifies anything at all. He refused or neglected to veto budgets that allocated money that should have been used in a prudent fashion, were he and the legislators actually conservative. The chasm of difference between "W" and conservatives notwithstanding, today's Republicans are rebuilding their party with charismatic leaders and will be presenting a strong front come 2012, if not before.
