Interesting comments, and caused me to think about this a bit.

I love being in the mountains and woods. I love hiking in the mountains and woods.

I don't actually like backpacking all that much.

But if you are going on long hikes, you usually have to take a backpack. That's why the whole lightweight movement has been so intriguing to me. Being able to go on long hikes without carrying a heavy pack is great.

I'm not even really sure I like 'camping' as an activity either. I do enjoy sleeping in the mountains and woods, but I'd usually rather be hiking than sitting around in camp.

Maybe I'm just overthinking the definition of camping. :)

edit: oh, and I do love my hammock.

Hey.. I stopped trying to explain it to people who don't "get it" a long time ago. I don't even try. I'm comfortable being weird and a loner who walks in the woods.

I'm not a good ambassador for our sport. I'd rather people didn't join me.
