    I like camping, it's great to cut out all the noise, just be alone with one's self (or friend), be surrounded by natural things instead of human constructs. And I really like starting campfires. I got started out camping to find a setting to play with hallucinogens, and that combo really opened my eyes to nature. I have tended to take quick one or two day backpacking trips in very secluded places, have done Death Valley, Big Sur, Yosemite, Yellowstone and others. I always look for really out of the way camp grounds, or find a suitable spot that's not specifically designated and do some guerrilla camping. A few national parks in the US allow camping anywhere, I like that.

    Now a lot of what I liked about camping is what I like about where I live, very secluded, surrounded by nature, so I haven't thought about going out for a while. If I really want a quick camping trip, I can hike up stream side from here for a few minutes, and I'll be totally alone and in the forest.

    I love camping. I do think I’m experiencing a lot of Se while out in nature and it is key to my happiness and well being. I need nature and where I live now is kiss-the-ground beautiful and I moved here on purpose to enjoy it.

    I dont think its Se related - but more Si
    Si takes in the 5 senses whereas Se acts it out
    I think any function can play into enjoying the outdoor or camping - Se enjoys quick fast outward gratification which is different than enfp a enjoy scenery - but perhaps it's just me

    I like taking in the view - the smell - the warmth of the fire during night time and the light breeze of wind morning time
    Getting lost within thoughts day dreaming or reading on the hammock during the day time
    Gathering around with friends around the campfire playing truth or dare or 2 truth and 1 lie ( no function can describe that)

    Whereas my husband enjoys hunting - archery shooting down glass bottles .
    My esfp cousin hates camping and prefer the beach along with many Sp users I know

    I'm very much of the school that we don't have appreciable access to our shadow functions, which is why they're called shadow functions.

    Camping as far as how they engage in my functions is only dimly a sensory experience. There's a Si connection to my youth, wandering in the desert of my home. But more so than that, it's a very Ne-Fi activity for me. I like to experience thinking in a different way in a different setting, imagine what it would be like to not live in a civilization. And it's a way for me to affirm things that are important to my values, it's about life and natural energy, and give myself time to think about who I am away from the things that want to tell me who I am, and about feeling independent. My Tert Te loves to plan and prepare for the excursions, it makes me feel unnaturally powerful.

    I quite like camping. I loved it as a kid.-Although if you can't fall asleep that tends to shit on the experience quite a bit.

    I love anything that makes me physically exhausted and uncomfortable, I don't know why. Probably because I spend most of the time feeling a low-key restlessness when I'm just comfortable. I used to love kayaking at uni.. getting changed in the freezing cold, the ice cold rapids when you capsize demanding your senses to be fully present in the moment, the group hugs to get warm by the river while we're waiting for the car, the beer in the pub afterwards to warm you up.. Damn.

    As an adult I think I would need to be with friends and have some booze to enjoy camping though. I haven't gone camping without there being drinking involved since I was a kid so maybe I wouldn't enjoy it quite so much as I used to trying to get to sleep sober with a big root digging into my back and mosquitos all on my face and people snoring when you can't get to sleep yourself.

    That's true, my mum is the same (ESFP). She had a camper van and used it to get to the beach!

    I never really looked at Si this way. I'm still discovering things about it. I like this description, makes a lot of sense.

    I love camping! It is an adventure and nothing better than a hearty campfire meal and some good conversation \ music around the fire. Also a great time to share a few brews with great friends.

    I grew up in the dirt, I don't necessarily mind "roughin it" but not too rough lol. If I wanted to invest, I would quasi glamp....just cause I like gadgets and finding interesting ways to get comfortable!

    That's interesting, Ai about the Si. I've loved hearing about one more thing we have in common and the way you write about it. I'd love to go camping with you and we;ll have to go hiking for sure! You know it!

    I have so many it's hard to choose. There was a lovely night camping on a small bridge listening to the water and before it got dark, just looking up at the trees and soaking in the look of the sunlight filtering in through the leaves. I believe that was right after I got home from Denmark and then waited out the winter. I think it was May, I had been craving my mountains for so long and when I got in them I just couldn't get over how good it felt and how they were truly everything I had been craving and more and memorized what it did to me.

    Hiking to Angel's Landing in Zion's with a group of college kids. That is some view!

    Sleeping under Delicate Arch with my roommates from Moab... just looking up at the moon and the arch together. Nobody does that! But of course kids from Moab do! I learned to really love the striations in red rock down there. We went "home to Moab" a lot with those girls who for a long while were like sisters to me.

    In high school I went on "Survival" with 20 kids from all different walks of life. It was led by school counselors. I got really close to all of the sincere real people who came. I think... this did influence me quite a bit really because the counselors really helped us all to be very vulnerable with each other and I really shone in that environment and felt like a leader for the first time and the kids were from every clique in the school. Jocks and stoners. I got along with everyone and was a very unifying force, but afterwards it was very interesting to see who went back to their cliques and didn't keep their friendships...or might not even acknowledge them... It was very very interesting.

    I love that growing up my mom would just spot caves or cool things to check out from the road when we were on trips and we would just stop and all explore it. My mom took us to so many cool hikes.

    Yellowstone with my family when my kids were maybe 7-9 and we just all loved the hot pots area. It's so gorgeous in NE Yellowstone! It's very spiritual to see the steam rising and all the colors with the background of the pines and elk grazing. Just gorgeous!

    And I love caves and so do my kids. I took them to Timpanogus cave when they were little and the formations are so pretty. I think they'll always love caves like I do.

    Here, I like going where nobody goes... at least I've never seen a soul there... where I can get on top of a cliff that juts out into the ocean and is near a lighthouse and my dog and I play up there, it's like a little meadow, where you're just looking out into the Pacific Ocean.

    On my birthday on Saturday I'm going on an extended hike to 1000 feet above the ocean, there's wildflowers up there and old old-growth Douglas firs.... 10 feet around at the trunk where no lumberjacks were ever allowed. It's been protected. I am amazed that this is what Oregon would actually look like before loggers... it feels like a tropical jungle almost. Huge plants... very different. I am SO looking forward to it!
