    Yep, in addition to backpacking, I occasionally car camp too.
    And when I don't have the chance to sleep outdoors, all my other nights I hammock camp in my bed room

    Yeah, one choice isn't enough. I do plenty of car and backyard camping testing various set-ups for when I go backpacking.
    I voted "Backpacking".

    Backpacking. I almost can't stand car camping anymore...gotta be out and away from the herd...

    I could have swore that there was a thread just about HF members that rode motorcycles, but I'm not finding it.
    A few that I remember were Pan, bhancock, & RAW. But there were more.

    No doubt about it! Also, no car lights blinding you around the campfire as the folks take an hour to set up their tent for the first time!

    Once I started backpacking, car camping become a little bit boring. I will still do a one night car camp locally when I'm desperate to get out and can't go backpacking.

    I'd like to buy a kayak and do some hanging on the lakes and rivers. That would be an interesting kind of exploring.

    Good post!

    I do a lot of Mtnbiking/kayaking but my main love is backpacking which i do year around here in VA/WV.
    I also like being well off the beaten path with my hammock.

    Cool

    Kayak camping, mostly.



    Second choice would be car camping.
    Yesterday's tomorrow is tomorrow's yesterday. It's the only day that counts.
