Happy Camping is a way to get money out of Bitcoin.
With a $10 registration fee, you get access to over 100 happy camps around the world.
But the camps themselves can be quite expensive.
You pay a small amount of money to enter a camp, and once you’re there you’re locked in a cage for a few days.
That’s not a bad deal if you want to make some extra money, but not so good if you’re looking to make it as a Bitcoin miner.
I got a bit of an edge when it came to this camp because I was the only one in the group that had a Bitcoin wallet with me, so I could check it out while I was in the cage.
I was able to find a camp in Thailand for a very cheap price.
In the first day of the camp, we went to the Bangkok Hilton.
The room had a small table, but the bed was right there in the middle of the floor, right in the hallway, with all the other sleeping pods.
The Thai Hilton was not exactly the cheapest hotel in Thailand, and it’s a bit expensive for the type of camping I was looking to do.
Once I was inside the hotel, I was greeted by an employee that asked me what kind of camp I was attending.
He gave me the price for the day, which was $10.00.
I immediately thought, “That’s not enough for me!”
I knew I needed more money to pay for the campsite, and I was already at my limit of money on the day.
After spending $10, I started making my way down to the main camp.
I walked around the camp in a loop, and when I got to the end, I got my first look at the campsites and realized I was spending way too much money.
It wasn’t until I got back to the lobby of the hotel that I realized the camp was overpriced.
The camp was actually more expensive than I had expected.
It was a bit more expensive for a place to sleep, but I was happy with that.
The prices for the other campsites were much more affordable.
I could see that the camp had a little bit of a disadvantage when it comes to Bitcoin mining, because they weren’t quite as big and full of people.
But that was just because I wasn’t paying enough attention to it.
Once I finished camp, I spent the rest of the day in the hotel lobby, chatting with the staff and eating some delicious food.
The hotel had a nice view of the sea, so we were able to enjoy the sunset while catching a movie.
When I got home, I found that the hotel was selling Bitcoin at a discount.
I thought that was great, and so I decided to sign up for another Bitcoin camp, this time in China.
This time, I decided not to spend the money I was saving at camp, but instead go into the campset to mine for my Bitcoin.
For a couple days, I stayed at the Happy Camp, but then I decided that I didn’t want to waste any more money on food and lodging, so the camp closed down.
With my Bitcoin mining income now making money, I bought a new wallet for $1,500.
At that point, I had about $8.00 in Bitcoin.
After spending some money, the camp reopened.
So I spent $8,000 on food, and $6,000 for lodging.
Since then, I’ve made over $50,000 in Bitcoin, and the money was going to pay rent and bills for the next few months.
On the first night of camp, the staff had a great laugh at the expense of mine, and we ended up spending a lot of time chatting, laughing, and sharing food.
A few days later, after I spent another $1.00, I finally decided to leave camp.
My only regret was that I was so hungry I couldn’t even look into a campsite and make any sense of what was going on.
I felt like I was wasting a good chunk of my money on useless junk.
But, I know I made the right decision.
I’m not a huge Bitcoin enthusiast, but if I can make some more money from Bitcoin mining and spend it on something other than Bitcoin, I’ll probably make a lot more money in the future.
