I like the aesthetics of an uncluttered room, and this has translated to an uncluttered pack, less items to fiddle with, less to keep track of. I also find my outdoor experiences to be enriched by a little adversity (cold, hunger, soreness), at least when I'm remembering the trip after the fact. Consequently, going UL seemed like a natural fit for me right off the bat.
If you enjoy your comfort items, are traveling with people of similar mindset, and aren't planning to go far, take what you like and just enjoy it. That's what I do when I camp with my kids.
If you want to immerse yourself in UL technique, try planning a solo adventure or one with another ultralighter. Walk farther and fuss less with gear. You might just get addicted.
Either way, it's all about getting outside. Have fun.
