I'm definitely a hiker/backpacker. This summer I did a lot of dispersed camping in state and national forests where we'd set up camp for a few days on the edge of a lake and fish and hang out. It was fun, but it left me itching to get on the trail. This confirmed in my mind that I do like both types of camping, but if I had to pick, I will pick the hiking. My style is different in the winter, though.
