I love being immersed in nature. I always go to the backcountry, solo most of the time. You would be amazed how much wildlife you see when you are alone. In the backcountry, I am away from people and their machines, it is the only way I can camp.

I tent camp because it makes me feel self-reliant. Of course I enjoy camping for all the obvious "nature" related reasons, but I choose to tent camp because it is gratifying to know I can do what I need to do if I had to do it.

Second to that would be the ability to camp where any type of RV camping equipment could not get to.
