I don't see it as exclusive to one type of camping, I do both. Visiting family I take the RV to a RV park close as possible usually in a city. I enjoy going to the wilderness even more but it depends on the situation.

We routinely camp at smaller campgrounds and rv parks that are away from the cities. We are under trees, have grass and leaves, a firepit that we have a fire occasionally, or sometimes even cook over the fire. It is true that we may or may not be on a cement or paved pad and like to have FHU when possible. One of the only reasons we prefer a pad is that as a big rig the ground is unpredictible when it rains. Yes, we have been stuck in mud 2X - up to the axles.

I've had our 40 ft DP down more dirt roads than most people. See the rig in my signature.

Being a bit judgemental today aren't you? Why should the way you want to do things be the best way? When did "Do it my way, or you're wrong" become the mantra for so many people?

As long as folks are content, what does any of that matter?
I don't expect people to RV my way.

Some people are limited to concrete for mobility's sake - and I'll admit that the arthritis in my feet limits my hiking to a large extent. But I've kayaked many thousands of miles, so I suppose that could count as "getting off the beaten path" ;-)

At present we head out 2 to 3 weekends a month April thru October to state parks where we hike, read and have a few drinks. We started years ago in a tent with kids progressed to a motorhome without kids, but soon again with kids and grands with their pop ups.
It gets us away from the big city, away from the chores at home, gets us some sanity time.
It really doesn't matter what others do, but geez why don't more people go to obedience classes with their dogs so they have a clue that dogs can be model campers too.
I'm glad you found your happy place, really I am. But please, I long for the days when free thinking was accepted rather than this group think ****. Camping, getting away is what we make it. You do your thing and we'll do ours. I respect you and hopefully you can respect my choices too. But understand what I/we do will be different, and that is ok!!

I prefer the road less traveled. It may be asphalt,concrete,or dirt. Full hookup or no hookup, lit up by city light or star light, all I know is that at the end of the day I am exactly where I'm supposed to be and grateful to be there.
