And that problem is, How do I get my boyfriend to try camping?

He's never camped, ever, in his life. He's only technically slept outdoors once, and that was on the balcony of a hotel room. Which is not camping.

I tried to float the idea of trying it this summer, since this is prime camping time for me. And I love camping. He was....pretty resistant even to the suggestion. Even my promise of campfires and s'mores had no effect.

Have any of you had a similar problem? Are any of you camping converts? If so, what convinced you to try it? Do any of you hate camping? If so, what would convince you to try it (again, or for the first time)?

These are just two of the pictures from the trip he and I took to Lake Tahoe this weekend. I would have loved to have camped there, instead of staying in a hotel. I've been camping for as long as I can remember, and it hurts to think that it's not something I can share with him. Seriously, what's not to love?
