i think you have most of us beat already. Your style of hiking reminds me of the "Indian Camping", as we called it, that my friends and i did as kids. Simpler. Purer. Maybe even more fun.
I'm not sure that i would advise you to change a thing. If it works for you, go with it - don't change. Only change that which is not to your liking.
There is a saying that i learned on these Forums - "Hike your own hike". You, my friend, already appear to be doing just that. I'm sure that i could learn a lot from you.
Best wishes for much success in your endeavors.
