So, a few questions

Do you tent camp or use a travel trailer?
Do you camp in designated sites/parks or go deep into the bush and make your own site?
Do you carry any firearms while camping? Not for fear of marauders, but protection against wildlife?
If tent camping in the bush, do you carry in food and supplies or do you live as settlers did 150 years ago?

If I camp, i carry. And it is never for the animals.
If i go backwoods, i carry a hammock and food, accompanied by beers. I also like a folding chair.

Travel trailer, designated sites, always carry due to 2-legged wildlife, carry own food. I am getting old so I prefer modern luxuries but back in the day I have tent camped and even slept out in the open with nothing more than a sleeping bag, fire, beer, jerky and more beer.

I/we tent,trailer and tarp/hammock camp. I've hammock and tent camped off of motorcycles and hiking for years. Some designated camp sites, some hike in back country sites. Yes I carry when permitted, some areas don't allow it though, like GSMNP. I carry my food, foraging is to **** unpredictable
