    Love the new avatar Shug!

    Car camping for me is similar to what's already been said; if I can't fit everything into my pack AND carry it, then I'm car camping. I actually enjoy car camping. Sure, it isn't the grand adventure that many hikes hold the potential for experiencing, but good times with friends has its rewards too. As others have said, a good cut of meat and a cold beer enjoyed under the stars makes for a darn fine evening.

    At Florida's Lake Wales Ridge Forest in February we camped about two miles from the cars. We actually carried in two Dutch ovens, steaks, bags of vegetables, peaches and several dozens of eggs. Even the firewood was packed in.

    Did we car camp? It surely looked like it at our campsite - the only thing missing was the cars!

    Car camping is me loading everything into the 4Runner that my wife and daughter need to make the "camping" experience pleasant. Typically a trip to the lake with the boat in tow. I use the hammock & they use a tent.

    Backpacking is me and the guys...walking into the woods with everything on our backs and not returning for days.

    Shug! The new icon sort of looks like some mystical Dutch Shug clone.

    Should we worry?
    This place you say your lookin' for
    It might have washed out with the rain
    Might not be there anymore
    Might not be the same

    For me car camping is anytime I need the car for more than getting my self and my backpack to the trail head.

    If I'm carrying everything in my backpack that I need for my entire trip then I'm not car camping, even if I'm 10 feet from my car. Just my opinion on the matter.

    Hey Shug, you forgot to mention kids riding bicycles through your camp site...

    there have been times i hiked 20 miles just to camp where i heard those sounds
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
