My camping is in a wall tent deep in the wilderness not a trailor in a campground. That said what I love is the experience but what I hate is all the preparation and packing. We try to limit 180 pounds to each packhorse not including the packsaddle and pads. A saddle horse carrys much more than that for the average guy with his rifle, gear, saddle, pads, etc. I don't buy that "live weight" versus "dead weight" theory. Actually when we pack out a big bull elk the horse may have over 200 pounds of meat and horns on him. One bull elk = two pack horses.

It is a great way to get away from city life and away from work and everything. Nature is very peaceful and camping/being in nature is the best way to relax and have a good time.

I love it because it gives me a place to relax and get away from the hastles of everyday life. No school, no work, no cell phone, no homework; nothing but the sound of nature, the fire flickering, fresh caught bluegill sizzling on the skillet, pure heaven.

Raccoons in the gear; poison ivy toilet paper; black flies all day and skeeters in the evening; Whipoorwills singing their hearts out to their soul mates all night; leaky tent seams; roots and rocks under the sleeping bag; stuck sleeping bag zippers; heavy footsteps and breathing outside the tent; campfire smoke in the eyes and clothes; new friends offering you a beer and a burger; fresh air; warm sunny days; cool cozy nights; brilliant stars that fill the sky; a crackling roaring campfire; no traffic; cooking over a live flame; campfire coffee; the only news report being the day's hunting or fishing stories. I love it.

I could break any drought an area may be having if I would just go camping there. It rains every time I go camping without fail.

The best part about camping is being able to take someone who's never been and see the satisfaction on their faces when they catch their first trout and eat it for lunch.
