My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
used pop-up have became quite affordable. Id get one but thats one more thing to put a plate on, take up space, have lights & tires to maintain- and camping isnt near of a cheap lodging thing that it used to be.
$9 per night for primitive at the trail ride. $20 per night at the Army Corps of Engineers campground where I'm staying in western Illinois - right on the Mississippi R.

What did they mean by "Some swimming may be required"?

That’s part of the reason I still tent camp. Cheapest camping out there.

Bring your swim trunks and hope it’s been as dry up north as It was here in his summer.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

No plate needed, no extra lights or tires:

Actually I also like tents , and was my initial plan for having a modicum of a life in '20 . But the Zombie Apocalypse both closed down all the camping in state forests , and delayed getting the Ranger on the road .

But for taking the family , or camping out for a week during hunting season , a cheap pop up could have its appeal .
