4X4 F250 diesel and 19 foot camper/trailer.

Park it in the trees beside the creek, 20 miles from the pavement. 10 miles from nearest cell phone service!

Couple of times I've gone up for a week and seen more bears than people.

I am not so concerned about the roving bears. It is those tall over sexed Amazon Women that rome the High Country. Gees! you could be taken prisoner and held for hours.

That's if it's a hit and run hunting/fishing camping session but those of us who go for a couple of days take tents or camper trailers which tow behind (11x6 or there abouts sized trailers) with a tent bolted across the top of the trailer that unfolds that has things like a sink, double bed/mattress and some other gear that basically makes it like a tent on wheels that tows behind the 4wd's or cars and takes about 10 minutes to set up.

We use camp ovens to cook out of and do things like rolled shoulders, pizzas, chooks, legs of lamb etc or frying pans for bacon and eggs for breakfast plus some take generators for lighting plus we use esky's or portable fridges to keep the food and beer cold.

Here's a picture of my hunting/fishing/ camping setup.
The 4wd is a Toyota Landcruiser cab chassis with a 6 cylinder 4.2 diesel with my camper trailer and 12' tinnie set up for a trip to 1 of our local dams with my son.

During Summer we cook on portable gas stoves because of bush fire restrictions and food is generally pretty simple as there's hunting and fishing time wasted sitting down eating.
Dang----Im going campin with YOU.....Cold beer, pizza.bacon, mattress.... You got it fiqured out.....Some of us girls like the outdoors,nature, fishing, etc. but were not going to sleep on a pile of rocks and eat bugs with you.

If I'm going camping with my GF I take a tent plus 50 extra pounds of stuff she just can't live without also she has to sleep in a tent refuses to sleep out in the open.
My campsite must have at least a Queen sised bed, a shower, sink, bathtub, air conditioning, tv and a hairdryer. Most of my recent campsites had a refrigerator and microwave.
