I haven't read all the pages, but it is interesting to me that sometimes people let their imagination run wild. There is no doubt a better chance if you getting injured or killed in the vehicle that you drive to the trailhead or camp site with than while camping.
I like the solitude of a lone hike and camp. I also enjoy the company when with friends and family, although it does make you comform to the group dynamic with time frames, hike speed etc...
