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.
