About camping:

Also note that people will brag about anything, even an unpleasant
task. Programmers will brag about working 80-hour weeks, hunters
will brag about sitting out in the freezing cold for hours without
nailing anything, and game players will brag about playing through
an interminable game to the bitter end.

So, even though some players may brag about their camping, that may
be bravado more than any real joy in camping.
