Who loves camping ?
I love camping , one with nature and all that natural crap. I don't believe that weather or Geography should be a deterrent , only something more to prepare for.
Any time , anywhere , just think , NO limits.!
What kind of gear do you have and why? I'll tell you mine if you all tell me yours'
so have at it , who's first ? :)

Somewhere in between all of those! 8-foot popup that is just a tent (2-48 inch beds) on wheels and storage for gear. Portable kitchen for outside and chairs. Couple of coolers and we're good to go! Forgot to add, we have AC for the 100+ degree summer days (no, we don't stay in there all day, it is so we can sleep at night!). Heater for when it gets so cold that snugglin' isn't enough :) The ez-up for shade during the day on those 100+ degree days!

We have a 30 foot travel trailer but I would hardly call it camping lol. Air conditioning, fridge, stove, shower, hot water, TV etc. Its an older trailer but it still has most of the comforts of home just in a smaller package.

I live in North Florida so we camp mainly in Florida and Georgia. Some great places to camp without travelling massive distances.

When I was growing up back in England I camped in tents where the toilet was a hole you dug yourself. Now that is camping!

Big fan of tent camping, in fact all our crew are. I can't possibly list all the gear because when we all get together we kind of have everything. I do love my 9' x 9' eureka. it has a 7' center height. Thats it (sans vestibule fly) in the foreground.... by my doggie!

Our last trip (yesterday..... )
You can tell we are roughing it because we dont' have high def satellite.

No water, no electricity, no dump, in a parched desert environment.

We've done our fair share of tenting and 4 wheel drive locations.... but I love the dark desert on a clear night. SO MANY STARS.....

Too old to tent, so a 19 ft trailer. I can hndle that as long as I don't have to camp in any kind of campround."

Nothing like a good roaring campfire, good friends, and good single malt Scotch!:):)

Love camping and always have!!

We've been camping as long as I can remember??
We've had a 30' Holiday Rambler since 96' which is a four season camper,I have a truck pop up overhead camper,and a small pop up camper I pull behind my motorcycle,and five tents ranging from one man to six man. Anymore it seems I prefer the tent or motorcycle pop up heading cross country for a couple weeks on the bike and in the tent....Yeah I like to camp :D
