    Stealth Campers & Car Campers & Yard hangers

    As Ive read here a lot of us Hike and Stealth Camp so we look for Camo and Ground colors to blend in.
    How about folks who cant get that far, and just like to Car Camp?
    or Just getting out and Hanging in the yard?
    I didnt want them to be left out or feel outta place. (not that any one on here would make any one feel left out)

    Besides
    There has got to be a time for the Day-glow Green's, Yummy Red, Oh my goodness Yellow, and other Bright color ripstop

    I'm not in to camo or colors that blend in. I like to be seen in plain sight and if I want to steath camp I just go a little ways off trail. If there are hunters out there I want them to see me and heck, sometimes I have to find my setup myself after I have ventured off aways. That can be a challenge even with bright and more visible colors, especially at night or fog or when it is raining.

    All of the above - I car camp before backpacking outings sometimes, and with my hiking group, a large contingent of which are day hikers and not backpackers. While I don't go looking to hide camp in the wilderness, I do tend to find locations off to the side or beyond where the tents are, which is more a matter of not having boy scouts racing through my guylines in a busy Yosemite site.

    Yea I think The BSA frowns on BS trapping, but it does sound like fun

    Pawfoot wants her gear to be that Bright Day glow Green (she will have to hike behind me to save my eyes)

    Pawfoot will hike so far ahead, you'll be glad to be able see the bright dayglow patch on the horizon.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I'm a car/backpacker. The material I found was green, my bugnet came from army surplus, and my tarp is white and came from the lumber-yard. Without the tarp, I'm kinda hard to spot. I didn't really plan it that way, but it works out.

    I figure when I go stealthing, I'll rely more on timing than on coloration. Set up at dusk/dark, leave early in the morning.

    Grey does a lot better than you would think, here in the south east.

    And location...many times "stealth camping" means camping somewhere you are not supposed to be!
