(KPLR) – In Tuesday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, JB looks a camping.

I talked to a friend who was taking his family camping this week.  I'm jealous. That's right.  No smart phones, no Netflix just the great outdoors.

It seems like camping has become a bit of a lost art to those who feel they can't disconnect from their phone.  Some studies show the number of campers in the U.S. has dropped over the past couple of years.

It may sound too tough to try, but you may be surprised to find out you really can survive.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
