So many fantastic parks to visit! One doesn't need to be a diehard survivalist to enjoy the natural world. I know very little about survivalism. I want to camp in comfort. Not wasting or abusing the environment but not going without a shower. Propane is great for cooking. I'm careful to recycle and use water and electric sparingly. I re-use plastic bags. I'm very conscientious when it comes to the dogs. I pick up after them and keep them leashed. I'm finding that most campers have leashed pets and this comes as a big relief.
