Used to a lot in my teens & 20's, but I married a girl who thinks that wilderness camping is lunch at the San Diego Zoo on the way to Horton Plaza for shopping. Favorite spot was camping at Avenue of The Giants in Northern California.

The last wilderness camping I did was in 1991.  I remember it well because I said "this is the last time you're catching me camping!" 

We were up in LaRonge in northern Saskatchewan.  It was July and might as well have been December! The fishing however, was spectacular and was the trips saving grace   

I could be tricked into "Glamping" in Africa though!

Its been a while since I have done it for recreation, I enjoy a good canoe trip with wilderness camping along the way.

In the past year we did spend many months camped out in the wilderness for various forest appraisal projects in Mn, WI, MI, and NY.

      Wilderness is the only way to go.  I do not like to stay in a "campground" with dozens of tourists, RV's etc. 

     Thanks for the reminder.... it's been way too long since I got outside!

I've done plenty of "car" camping - i.e., drive to a campsite and set the tent up. I like tent camping but prefer to have running water. I can do without most other things but have to have an occasional shower.

In Fl it's a bit too humid for me to go camping

Wilderness camping is easy to find in Canada, we only have to drive 3 hours or so.  That's not bad.  I adore it, though I haven't had the means to do it in many years.  In the bush or on the water in a canoe.

I am very surprised to see the overwhelming majority of those who don't like it. Didn't expect that, but on the other hand, creature comforts can be, well, comforting, lol.

I grew up camping with Girl Scouts and my family.

We still camp at Cook Forest, PA but expect flush toilets & hot showers.  My brother & his wife are coming from Texas and will rent cabin with Dave & I.  Other family members from far & near will have RV, pop-ups or good old-fashion tents.

Wilderness camping, along with some component of physical ability, requires the participant to create their own entertainment. To recognize the marvelous world they share with billions of others and to celebrate its glory and mediate on the importance of it all.

Too many lack the ability to entertain themselves and certainly want to avoid thinking on the important things that should bind us together as a species if survival is the goal.

So, I go to Epcot to be entertained and see the world.

Camping done right?
