    Addendum to that: the cross between those three is also a great RV campsite, because the RV doesn’t have to be self sufficient when in one of those sites. Usually you can get just water and electric, or only electric. The campsites with all three are great and usually get reserved first. :)

    Does a Septic Tank count as a sewer? If not, then my property is not civilized. Heh heh.

    Edison is responsible for civilization? Tell that to the Renaissance.

    @Tustin2121 I would say that an RV site equipped with water, electricity, and sewer qualifies as civilization!

    And somewhere off to the right: “Tripoli”.

    This a pretty privileged way to the view the work. There are tons of third world countries where the majority of people don’t have electricity and/or sewers. Are they uncivilized?

      There’s nothing in that card saying you are uncivilized if you live in “simple surroundings” (sorry, I’m Swedish, I don’t know the English antonym to “civilization”).
      There’s also nothing saying you’re automatically civilized if you’re living in a civilization (for reference: almost all modern reality shows).
