    I do not camp too much, but the tent is the route I take.

    When I was a young pup we had a sheepcamp, also spent alot of time out west of where I live at in the ranch cabin, it has no running water elec and such. So in a way the ranch house was camping, just didn't move it around.

    Tent camping. Someday I will have another VW van with a pop top (westaphalia, i.e. eurovan MV weekender). But for me and my family, we enjoy tent camping. renting a cottage on a lake is nice - but to me that is a vacation and not camping.

    Preach it Brother ....

    I'm fond of a bedroll on pine needles myself, but will subject myself to a tent and coleman stove if I have my bedwarmer along.

    Pogo, awesome set up. You camp much like we do--I don't have any pics loaded on my computer of our site, but I'll be sure to get some up soon. We have to camp with a tent, because we strand ourselves on an island in the middle of the lake. It's so beautiful and peaceful. You wake up in the morning and hear the water moving--ahhhhhhh refreshing. We did have a silver fox stalk our camp last time. He was cool though---he grunted and growled a bit the first night to let us know he was there, the next night, he came and laid about 100 yds from the tent--all night. We don't go out after dark--we camp amongst gators and other critters.......lol If mother nature calls and you can't absolutely hold it---it takes 2 of us go...one to hold the flashlight to light a path, the other carries the bucket (5 gallon bucket with a hole in the bottom and a toilet seat on top) the shovel and the toilet paper......lol It's fun and I have a blast! Mom and Dad live for the summer so we can go camping.

    Oh yeah, definately tent. Cookstove is nice, but I'll take a wood fire any day. There's nothing better than deer steak roasted over an open fire. Yeah, a little hickory, hard maple and apple wood. Yummy. May have to go set up the tent in the yard tonight. Better grab a couple sleeping bags though, supposed to be down to zero tonight. May skip the tent and just go for the steak and then head back in.

    I would love nothing better but to have a wood fire--however last time we did a fire I got very ill. I was sick for 3 weeks--my doc said I had a severe reaction to the smoke. I don't know if it's the type of wood we burned or what, but I can't take that chance again. It happened once before around a bon fire, but I didn't put 2 and 2 together until it happened under the same circumstances. Such a shame--I grew up around fireplaces-that's all we had for heat--now I can't be around fires

    Are you sure noone threw anything on the fire? I've never heard of that before.
