Camping and Amateur Radio make an excellent combination.  Enjoy the beauty and solitude of the great outdoors while contacting the world with your portable "Go-Kit." Here's a nicely done video from K0PIR made during a camping trip to the Black Fox campground in the Black Hills of South Dakota...great scenery complimented by a fast flowing stream and pleasant surroundings. K0PIR's simple operating system is more than enough to get you plenty of contacts.  A simple antenna (with ground system if you're using a vertical antenna), a small antenna "tuner", a multiband HF transceiver, and a solar-powered battery should give you hours of fun and relaxation without all of the noise, traffic, and confusion of an urban setting.
