They only get broken out in extreme cold too. Most of the time it's a pair of wool blankets. They're cheap, rugged and warm.

Cooking is in a cast iron Dutch oven and skillet. Nothing beats cast iron at home or in the woods.

A tent here is a must have. If you don't have one chances are you'll wake up covered in mosquito bites, a snake in your sleeping bag, or you'll be soaking wet by the time you wake up.

Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

I'm a true believer in the versatility of hammock camping. Plus you can hang them between two jeeps if you can't find suitable trees!

I just came back from a camping trip over labor day weekend and my coleman white gas stove and lantern served me well. That lantern was like a beacon in the night compared to everyone else's pathetic LED lanterns.

I grew up in Colorado and my Dad always packed his coleman white gas stove even though our Apache popup had a propane stove in it. I recall distinctly that the propane stove struggled to get the percolator going at high altitude, but the coleman made pretty quick work of brewing coffee.

I am either going tent, sleeping bag, cot, appropriate clothes, flashlight, water and MREs or like this:

Here is a picture from my spring trip to Nevada this past spring. This is at Bog Hot Springs. I enjoy a wide range of camping. At the top tier we have a travel trailer which is more like a portable cabin experience. At the other end of the spectrum I am leaving tomorrow for a 4 day canoe camping trip in Oregon. I also do a week or two each year camping from a motorcycle with my dad. In the middle is jeep camping. For the motorcycle I am using all backpacking type equipment to keep it small and light. It is incredible the gear you can get today, including my REI chair that is the size of a thermos when packed up but sturdy enough for my big butt. When Jeep camping I still use my back packing type stuff, but supplement with some stuff like a bigger cooler, bigger chair and maybe the full sized stove instead of the backpacking stove. Some of the brands I like are MSR, Big Agnes, North Face, REI, Marmot etc etc. One of the best purchases I made was a Helinox Cot One super compact backpacking Cot that is very sturdy and comfortable. No more messing with leaking un comfortable air pads. Any ways. I love camping in all of its forms and half the fun is playing with all the really cool gear that goes with it.
