Roughing it

The other day I ran into a guy who runs a local campground. During the course of our conversation, he mentioned some of the problems and complaints he has to deal with.

For one, he was extremely annoyed at Comcast, and their monthly charges for the cable hookups he has at each camp site.

Then he started in on the customers.

Several of them complained that their satellite reception was terrible in his campground.

Another guy was unhappy that the campground’s free Wi-Fi signal was not strong enough to penetrate his trailer — he had to go OUTSIDE to get decent reception. This guy was so upset by this shockingly bad service, he left a day early.

I used to dislike the whole idea of camping. Obviously, things have changed substantially since I last considered the issue.
