    A Boys trip = stretcher, roll up mattress & sleeping bag. In all honesty I hate setting up a ground tent. Nylon lightweight tents are pointless if a mild breeze picks up & canvas tents are heavy. Only time I will take a tent with is if I know its going to be proper cold or we setting up camp in one place for more than 2 nights. Rest of the time it's stretcher under the awning.


    Wife & kids trip = GT Camper or self catering chalet. Again I go on holiday to relax & reset. I don't want to be struggling with inflatable mattresses & hot tents.

    The one thing I will never go camping without is my fridge. I want my meat & beers cold, not wet from melted ice. Also proper lights. I live being out in the bush, but I also want to be able see my food when I'm cooking and eating.

    I think the only thing that matters is that camping/glamping is defined more by where you go than how you do it.
    If the point of camping was to put up a tent, then everyone would camp every weekend in their backyard. The only people that do that are kids that I've seen. For adults who are wholly familiar with their back yards, camping is about being out in nature in unfamiliar places.

    My motto is also to leave the home at home, camp as basic as possible, take just what is essential and travel light. This way I experience real nature and enjoy real camping. When back home one appreciates
    the luxuries again.

    We love camping in a tent on the ground and have a four person tent with a front vestibule which we use as a bathroom, kitchen, porch and storage space. They only difficulty we have ever had is with strong coastal winds so we use our bulky old Land Cruiser as a wind break to set up the tent. Worked for us so far. Since we are pushing 80 years old we don't have to worry about the kids anymore!

    As so many have said. Each to their own"

    If you asked me 5 years ago about a caravan I would have said work harder and pay for a bungalow. On trips I had a pop-up tent and really just the basics to keep me alive!

    But life has changed and we have a 2 year old! Now its a fully kitted self sufficient offroad caravan that I actually love! It makes life so much easier with the little one in off grid places and best sleep you will have in the bush!

    Also now wife has started studying part time with online classes, so I ordered a Saterlink. Just because if she doesn't have comms we will need to stay home and cannot venture into the bush! So we must compromise and adjust as life requires.

    Also driving a Landy it is vital to have coms to call the towtruck!!!
