Couch Camping: The Next Big Thing?

Couch Camping: The Next Big Thing?

After we found this silly picture from Nick over on Flickr, curiously named "couch camping gear," it got us thinking. Seeing as gas prices probably won't drop below $3 any time soon, it's probably best to go camping somewhere closer than a National Park. Plus, you wouldn't want any bears to keep you from visiting your favorite site in the universe, right?

So, let's open it up for you readers and portability maniacs - do you carry a million things to the couch when you guys watch the television or a movie? Or is this some kind of twisted joke that falsely delineates the joys of camping outdoors?

Personally, I find it intriguing seeing how laptops are almost completely replacing desktops - and we all thought those things were going to be around forever due to their upgradability and such. As for me, I keep it old school. I keep my television in one room and my desktop (yeah, I don't get out much) in another room. If I need to watch television, I'll grab a box of Cheez-It's and sprawl myself on the sofa until I get comfortable enough to sleep. It's such a pain though, especially when someone sends you a message and funny sounds echo from the other room. So, I can understand the need to bring all sorts of widgets and things to the sofa, just to watch a television show or movie.

Have a picture to share? Tag them "unplggd" and we'll find them! Or join our totally awesome Flickr group, Unplggd.
