Long time camper here and I'm pretty active on the pop up portal forum, but love camping so much that it's just not enough! I am a "darksider" as some may say. After decades of backpacking and tent camping, DW and I moved into a p'up a couple of years ago. We still go to the same boondock locals we used to tent camping....just easier with our toddler DS than the tent ever was. Plus, I sleep better which is just better for everyone involved. Personally, I love the p'up because I always did enjoy the tent....and now my "tent" has wheels and a few other creature comforts. Happy Campin'
