Hubby and I had a wonderful time in Vermont. The weather was delightful, we got to eat s’mores every night, and the scenery was stunning.
Many people have been awed by the fact that a pregnant woman would choose to go camping on her vacation, but I must say that it actually felt quite luxurious. We stayed in a well constructed lean-to that overlooked the woods, slept on lovely camping air mattresses, and had mosquito netting that made the whole thing feel quite cozy and romantic. We got to wake up to the birds chirping and lovely panoramic views of the trees and animals, and the mosquito netting enabled us to enjoy this all completely unobstructed, yet without any insects.
As much as I love backpacking, this definitely could not qualify as anywhere close to as difficult. We were able to take warm showers and had access to clean bathrooms. There was no worry about rain or dirt getting into a tent. Most importantly, sleeping on an air mattress on a wooden floor two feet off the ground means that there are no rocks sticking in your back.
