Has anyone seen this article from the LA Times about “glamping” (glamorous camping, that is)?
Basically, rich people spend upwards of $600 a night to go camping! The price includes a maid, a cook, and a "camp butler" who starts their fire for them!
Even more disturbing, the article states that visits to US national parks are declining while glamping is increasing in popularity. (They've even got people paying ten bucks for a s’more!)
What happened to getting back to nature?
""We're just not the camping kind of people. We don't pitch tents. We don't cook outdoors. We don't share a bathroom. It's just not going to happen. This is a kid who has never flown anything but first class or stayed anywhere other than a Four Seasons."" (quote from the article)
RE: "only in America". They'd be hard pressed to find a spot sufficiently remote on the right side of the Pond. Over here, the hoi polloi are always just around the next bend! *snerk*
Interesting article--thanks. Paws Up is only a couple hours away from here--but I hadn't realized how cushy it was.
There's another such resort with cabins a couple hours south of here.
Wow. $600/night. I'm in the wrong business!
