I just got done spending Memorial Day weekend in someone's cabin. It's so good to be home! Back where things are clean and comfortable, and I can do the things I want to do, like play tennis. The worst thing about getting back to nature, worse than the bug bites, cold showers, and dust everywhere is the BOREDOM. People seem to be killing time, they read, play solitaire, do anything to pass the time. Finally, it ends, and then you can get back to your life, except that everyone makes some obligatory statement about how great it was to "unwind". Do they mean it? Does everyone enjoy it as much as they insist they do? Or is it just something people say even though they don't mean it? Do people feel pressured into saying that they enjoy it because otherwise you're some kind of bad person who doesn't love nature and all that?
