I'm confused about verb tenses when starting a sentence with 'although'. For example: Although it rained, I went camping. That seems to be the general grammar rule from what I can find online. All the sentences are in the past.
But couldn't I say all of these too: Although it rained, I am camping. Although it rained, I am going camping. Although it rained, I am going to go camping.
But I can't say: Although it rained, I go camping. Why can I not use this tense?
What is the grammar rule? I found this from another question on this site:
It is not a hard-and-fast rule that there needs to be the same prevailing tense throughout an entire article or even in one paragraph. You are allowed to change verb tenses to reflect the temporal relationships between what has happened in the past and the authors commentary that is being made at the present time.
Could this also be applied to the sentences above? .
