    So I've been having a problem meeting people, as I dont go to bars or clubs. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas of where to meet people to go camping (real camping in the woods) and hang out.

    Hey I am in Chicago area near the stateline with Wisconsin and I have the same dilemma. I can't find any guys to hike, bike, camp, kayak, backpack. It's driving me crazy. There has to be some other guys on this site that are into those activities.

    meetup.com. It's not a gay-specific site. But you can look for (or create) a meetup group for camping and other outdoor activities.

    If it weren't for my totally fucked up on-call work schedule, I'd be more than happy to drive up there and go camping with you.

    not to be rude: but why do you presume that camping is "normal," whereas going to bars and clubs isn't (when more people go to bars and clubs). just curious. there's a tinge of judgment in your post title, and i can't help but wonder if your attitude isn't blocking you more than your activities?

    The Sawmill gay camping resort is not that far north of you at Dade City. Here's the link:

    I never said camping is "normal" i said i'm looking for normal people to go camping with. IE: Non druggies/ people looking to get away so they can shoot up and get high
