Yes, we shamped:

Camping where any inconvenience is rectified by driving to the nearest store and purchasing whatever will make yo[u] more comfortable.

From Urban Dictionary

Calling delivery for Boston Pizza while at a provincial campground doesn’t make me proud, it did allow us to have a great dinner though, and at the moment, that made sense.

Have you have ever done this?

    I have shamped. In fact, while shamping we came up with that definition and posted it to Urban Dictionary from the campsite via a friends BlackBerry.

      I remember that story and to this day, I use the term, which should be added to the Oxford dictionary (if twearking is there, so should shamping). Now everyone has a smart phone at a campsite though, so the definition might need to be updated to reflect modern times :).
