I've only been a few times, but I really enjoyed every bit of it. Wish I had the free time to do it more.

Me too. It seems whenever I try to get things planned it never works out.

I turn off everything too.

I hate having to get where I have no signal to lose the electronic gadgets, but it seems I'm not alone.

I have done my share of camping mostly to keeps kids happy but never really understude it. Work night and day to buy a nice house and fix it up just the way you want it and then pack it all up and go live like a caveman and call it a holiday.

I used to think similarly but have actually started enjoying the experience.

It's nice to get to a simpler place. Both physically and metaphorically.
