Please forgive me for being a "well rounded personality."
Car camping is kind of limiting, vehicle camping is more open.
And is this about camping or hanging?
Vehicle supported hanging?
Vehicle based hanging?
...
I love sailing.
Am thinking about participating in the Texas 200 sailboat event next June, and am contemplating a new boat for the event.
One boat requirement is to support one 11' hammock for overnighting while anchored.
Real simple 2 masted schooner is what keeps coming up, similar to Phil Bolgers' "singlehanded schooner."
...
Anybody else here regularly hang in a boat that has any suggestions?
Thanks youall.

Perhaps I should have said VEHICLE camping, but I just wanted to separate this from the UL quest some people (myself included) embrace. When I am hiking, I do count ounces, when I am camping from my truck, I don't just bring a kitchen sink, I bring 2.

I have just started getting into backpacking and trying to be a little more UL than I am when I car or motorcycle camp. I personally love motorcycle camping and have a 2014 V-Strom that i ride to the camp or, hopefully one day soon, ride down a dirt trail to get to stealth camp in the woods. When on a bike I do count bulk and pounds, not really ounces, just because there is a limit to the amount of stuff that I can take and it has to be relatively balanced. It does make me think about the things that I carry so that I don't carry the kitchen sink and I think that has been the gateway drug to backpacking and UL camping.
