Thanks for your photos and reminder of the joys and simplicity of backpacking. We started out as backpackers and when we had a child we moved to tent/car camping and now that we are empty nesters we have a trailer. We do, however, day hike everyday both at home and when camping. We have been on overnight backpack trips as well. I don't see it as an either/or proposition. You can have both the comfort of camping with a trailer AND the beauty of day or overnight packing. I do appreciate the lessons of simple camping derived from backpacking which I apply to trailer camping everyday.
