We do it right... No campground, no electricity, cut your own firewood. Best part it's 1.5 miles off the pavement....

Cut your own firewood (plenty of dead fallen hardwood) and wake up to deer and turkeys in the morning and see no one the whole time...

That is camping to me.....

you said no electricity but have a generator what does it do? backroad camping is enjoyable I do allot of it, with that said I also like the campgrounds full hook ups or not.

That's not a Fish Bridge, this is a Fish Bridge:

The little Champion 2000 Inverter keeps my house battery full. It gets run for about 2 hours (on economy mode) in the afternoon and then shut off. I sleep on a CPAP machine powered by a sine wave (xantrex) inverter running off the house battery so I need the genny to keep the battery charged for a weekend (2 day trip). It usually sits by the front wheel of the pickup.

I get my Coleman white gas lantern out for sit around and tell lies time in the evening.

The Backpack is pretty efficient power consumption wise, all LED lights and it has 2 20 pound propane tanks...I haven't refilled them all summer and I'm still on the first one....

Some more pictures.. It's really 'off road'. Thats my good friend Jim sitting by the camper. Getting in and out is a chore, pretty high off the ground but necessary for a 4x4 setup. No issues with ground clearance.....

Tossed in a picture of one of my hunting blinds. I have 2 stationary blinds on the property and 2 tree stands, you can see how thick the woods are....

My 'campground' is 'gaited' too. No way in unless it's a 4x4 and it's all posted private property, no tresspassing.

I consider myself fortunate to have the financial reserves to own a piece of property like this. I could have purchased a nice diesel pusher for what it cost but then I'd not have my own private campground and hunting preserve.

Best part is, it's 8 miles to the Walmart and Menards and Applebees if I want a sit down meal. While it looks remote, it's deceiving. It's not really.
