Used to stay in the woods 3-4 weekends per month as our kids grew. Was a Scout Master/Den leader/councilor/and OA/Woodbadge worker. Now I have a little R/V with a boat trailer. Time to "rough it" soon---LOL. Have slept on the ground plenty. Like another the military put a dislike of the ground in me way back when split shelter halves were in vogue and the end was open to the beautiful weather.

Getting ready for an 8-10 day camping trip over Memorial Day up along a little creek. at about 9,000 feet. Gotta use a camper now due to age, but I still go. 30 miles from the pavement and 10 miles from cell phone service.

Sometimes we go 4-5 days without seeing another person other than our little group. Generally burn up 1,000 to 1,500 rounds or .223 and 9MM repelling attacking pine cones. Might burn 15 gallons of gasoline in the ATV.

So will a week in Canada staying in modernized cabins count as “camping”?

I have 2 tents almost exactly like those too. One I use for trailhead, the other for backpacking. Hope you have a great time. I need to wait until July 4 at the earliest.

there was a time years ago, when we rough it camping out. many times we didn't even use a tent, prefering to sleep in a sleeping bag close to the campfire. doing our cooking over a campfire in a iron skillet and a dutch oven. and food cooked over a campfire just tasted better.

these days, roughing it means no room service!

Food cooked over a campfire STILL tastes better - but I've grown too accustomed to mattresses these days.

Best of both worlds
