Most of the time when I’m hanging it’s during a backpacking trip, so my gear is lightweight and very packable.
But when going car camping, I can obviously bring whatever I want – heavy fleece blankets, synthetic insulation, closet full of clothing, etc...but I have a hard time doing this!! Even just a few extra pieces of gear. I guess I’ve just built up a lightweight mentality from backpacking, trying to shed ounces whenever possible. And I think it may have to do with making sure my backpacking system "still works", an ongoing test, so I don’t “lose my touch” and so on.
I’m just curious - does anyone else find themselves in this predicament when packing for a car camping trip?
