“Camping: Where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person”

"Camping: Where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “Home from camping i love the outdoors. paid 18 dollars to live like a homeless person for a night. kinda weird when you think about it” was posted on Twitter by Jason Tabernacki on June 9, 2009.

“Camping: Where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person” was posted on Twitter by Mark My Words on July 2, 2014. The saying probably originated from an image.

Out here, it was like that joke of paying money to live like a homeless person. Most often, I would count down the days until the camping “adventure” ended and I could go home where there was TV and a hot shower.
