    Backpacking and car camping.
    Car camping is usually just a weekend and I take entirely too much stuff.
    Backpacking is anywhere from 2 days to 6 months, depends on how lucky I am. I don't carry much when backpacking; just what I need.
    Trust nobody!

    Primary is backpacking and hiking. With my current job and hobbies I usually manage the occasional weekend trip into the woods. As far as weight, I dont really know as far as I am concerned anything under fifty pounds is light so I am not one to count ounces. I take what I want to be comfortable and happy in the woods.

    Paddle camping and rarely car camping in my '72 VW bus. I'm not certain how much our packs average it depends on the trip sometimes we really rough it and travel deep, cook only with fire, eat dehydrated meals and bring as little as possible. Other times we just plop into a lake or just take one or two short portages and bring the two burner stove, the lantern, plenty of propane,fresh food(even lobster) and boxes of wine. I don't back pack because it seems like just one long portage. But I suppose walking through the woods is funner without carrying a canoe .

    Backpacking, one to three day trips mostly. My pack weighs no more than 28 pounds even in the winter, and less in the summer, but only a little less, maybe 24 pounds. I hope to get that weight down some though. Mule

    It depends on which of the above activities I'm involved in, location, season, and the duration of the trip. I try to keep my load under 30 lbs at all times, regardless of activity though. (Emphasis on the word try!)

    Lately, I can only sneak away for weekenders. The absolute most I can get away with these days is a week long trip, due to work schedule.

    Depends, but as many as possible!

    Motorcycle Camping

    I go mostly motorcycle camping.
    I have 2 bikes - a 1 liter bike for the long trips - usually 4 or more days with lots of miles to cover. Packed up about 45 lbs - with food, stove, a small tent in case there are no trees.
    The second is a small 250 dual sport for the backroads and in the woods trips. Usually 2 - 3 days but have gone a week. Not as many miles and usually much more relaxed. Those trips are packed with 25 - 30 lbs of gear depending on how long I am gone. I take only the Hammock - on a very minimalist type trip.

    I do alot of camping off my atv so a hammock was the logical choice. It allows me the freedom to camp where ever I choose without the need of a flat area. It has reduced my load weight also. All I need are trees or bolders and I'm good to go. I plan to use it in all camping situations from atv'ing, hiking, car ect. Wish I thought of this 20 years ago...

    All of the above! Backpacking/car camping/whatever works out. 1 to 6 days. Deep south to high lonesome Rockies. These days less than 30 lbs, still trying to reduce that a good bit more( depends on temps and distance).

    But how about this: most often these days, short or long day hikes! I tend to carry a ridiculous weight for day hikes, but who cares still well under 5-20 lbs( sometimes I take a lot of extra stuff just to play with or test). Usually on the day hike I'll take a break in the middle of the woods and hang my hammock. Maybe even fire up a wood or other stove for some tea and crumpets!

    IOW when there is no time to actually go camping, I play like I'm camping!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Little bit of everything is how I have camped in the past.

    So far with a hammock it has only been car camping, but I'm setting up for back packing trips 1-5 nights long, also will probably do a 7-10 day canoe trip in the next year or so.

    And I'll throw the hammock in when we take the RV out as well.

    Kayak/canoe camping. Once a month on average. I take way too much.
