hehe I've always had a disdain for the usage of "camp" and "trailer" in the same sentence, instilled in me by my parents, both of whom have have carried a canoe between lakes with two weeks' worth of food and housing on their backs... "Camping" means a tent, or possibly just a sleeping bag alone under the stars. Last year, my girlfriend's daughter went winter camping. Their tent consisted of a tarp folded in half, with their sleeping bags in between the two layers. Wouldn't you know it, that was the night we had the biggest snowfall of the season. They woke up buried under 30 cm of snow. What fun! At least it kept them warm...

I want to build a house in a hill. Like the hobbits, but with human-sized ceilings. How cool would that be? I would cover it with creeping vines like ivy and grapes. I guess grapes aren't creepers, but these are insignificant details. A hill house!
