    I've camped in some pretty harsh conditions, with lots of wildlife - rattlesnakes, cougars, wolves, coyotes, bears, moose, elk. I can handle a lot of stuff, even winter camped in a tent on a frozen lake in -25 temps. I'm not a wuss and don't require a trailer for comfort's sake. We have one because we camp all year round and our climate isn't conducive to having our kids in a tent in January, and the wildlife comes close at night. No way I would sleep in a tent with moose roaming around. At Easter when we went camping at our family 'farm' (just a huge plot of land about 160 acres) a moose or other large animal destroyed the swingset and slide. It either got tangled up in the swing or decided to have a back scratch against the frame, but in any even the metal was twisted and the slide was demolished. I don't need to be sleeping on the ground with that roaming around, thank you very much. In the extreme southeast of the province, in the coulee (kind of looks like the badlands) there are rattlers everywhere. Nope, don't need that creeping into the tent either. Camping for us is year-round, so an RV is kind of important for us.

    DH calls me a gourmet camper, LOL! I like my sleeping pad, I won't consider camping anyplace that doesn't have flush toilets and running water, and I'm not carrying anything more than a few dozen feet. And I still refuse to drink wine out of a box even while camping. Unless, of course, someone else brings it & offers to share. I'm not *that* attached to my principles.

    I used to be really into backpacking/climbing, hiking and camping for weeks at a time on different parts of trails on the east and west coast and in Canada. These days Glamping Hub | The best collection of glamping sites from around the world is more my style. I admit that nothing involving plugging in a machine, watching TV, or having air condition means camping. But I truly don't care enough to mind what other people call what they do camping or not. I don't call if they call it camping or childbirth (or marriage , doesn't bother me any.

    How far up? It is very pretty through there in the fall. I miss the colours so much. The 1000 Islands are also incredibly pretty in the fall too. Years back we drove down to Skaneateles for a fall craft festival and I fell in love with the area.

    Yes, me too. I got to live in a Yurt for one summer on a farm near Eugene Or. It was a tremendous thing. I played farmer and it was one of the most peaceful summers of my life. I want to own a yurt some day. It would be a dream come true. Till then, I will pretend by glamping.
