A real life example just popped to mind.
A few years back, we took the kids on a big, 3-1/2 week, out-to-the-west-coast-and-back camping trip in a 14' pop-up camper that was already well past it's best days, and a supplemental two-man tent. At one stop on the return leg, we were set up at a former KOA, now family owned, at Sundance Wyoming. As we were doing our family things, swimming in the pool, playing board games, getting supper, watching the huge thunderheads building over South Dakota, etc., one of those enormous RVs, you know, the ones that look like a commercial over-the-road bus and cost $250k or more, pulled in. An elderly gent (late 60s, early 70s, probably retired) got out and started setting things up and a 30-something woman (daughter? trophy wife? professional companion?) kind of mulled around, half heartedly helping. He got out a reclining folding chair, a tiki torch and a tv. A little later, the woman brought out a dinner that looked like a boxed microwave meal and disappeared back into the RV. She never came back out that night, but we could see the glow of a tv inside. He never went in, just watched his outdoor tv all evening.
Sound like fun?
