They imagine it would be a blissful communion With nature,

"Then we run our little boat into some quiet nook, and the tent is pitched, and the frugal supper cooked and eaten. Then the big pipes are filled and lighted, and the pleasant chat goes round in musical undertone; while, in the pauses of our talk, the river, playing round the boat, prattles strange old tales and secrets, sings low the old child’s song that it has sung so many thousand years—will sing so many thousand years to come..." (chapter 2)

This sounds pretty good until Harris blurts out about what would happen if it rained. The romance of camping out loses its lustre. The men decide to camp on good weather nights and stay at an Inn when the weather is bad.
