More campgrounds and more tents

I read a news story about how people have purchased a lot of outdoor camping equipment this year. Apparently, kayaks are sold out too. The theory is that people are not traveling as much because of the pandemic and are camping and enjoying outdoor activities instead.

My theory is that some tents are being used as housing. As I ride my bike I notice that the urban campgrounds are growing for a few years.

This year none of the water has been turned on. There are no functioning water fountains or water features. When I read about how well the housing market and stock markets are doing I almost immediately think of the campers. Should I be bringing them news about the stock market?
