I camp from my kayak so I pack really light.pound of hamburger meat,pound of bacon,dozen eggs,loaf of bread.Cooler full of water as dehydration is serious in Alabama.I would say water and snuff(tobacco) are the most important things.

As far as sleeping arrangements I also pack light.

These hammocks are the only way I will camp now.Run a rope from one tree to another,Hook the hammock and secure the Skeeter net.If rainy weather use a tarp instead of mosquito net.

Quick and easy and weighs about a pound.Being rocked to sleep by the stars along a bubbling creek is something I enjoy.

A bit off subject but I'm in the market for a decent family tent, a 5 man or similar size. 

Been looking at the air tents and the canvas bell tents but I don't have a clue which would be better. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The canvas bell tents can be used in winter with a wood stove, so another option, but you wouldn't want to carry one very far

Weight won't be an issue I'd of thought, it'll be used in camp sites and in places that's accessible by vehicle. I'm more drawn to the canvas tents for the reason you've mentioned but are they any better or more practical than a more modern type tent I just don't know.

The issue you have with a canvas tent is if you have to pack it away wet.
You will need enough room when you get home to fully erect it to dry it out otherwise it will stain and rot.

You could try a campsite where they have the canvas tents to rent out before deciding whether to buy one or not

I've read that about the canvas tents and although havng the room isn't an issue are they OK to be left erected for a few days in wet weather if you did get a bad spell.

      I want to purchase a pair of boots for the colder weather, I do a lot of walking, and some trekking about the hillsides and trails. I do not want "winter boots" but rather boots that would be suitable for a cold day, but would work with layers of socks rather than thick heavy boots. Several people have told me Meindl is an excellent brand, and that is great, but what kind ? Hiking ? Walking ? Do they make them that they would serve the purpose mentioned above ? Any specifics to look for in a boot for this purpose ?
      Thank you in advance,
      Lynn

      Sorry gentlemen to bother you, but I have come to my wits end. My neighbour across the way lets her dog roam as it please when it comes to shitting and urination, she is too lazy to actually take the dog out herself. He seems to have taken to my property and a certain area just under my bedroom window. I do not want to hurt the dog for the sake of her ignorance, but I do very much need to stop him from doing it any longer. The grass and  the shrubs are dying and turning brown and the flowers are just rank with smell that floats up through my bedroom window.
      He is a VERY OVERWEIGHT beagle and leaves behind some damn good deposits.
      I am wondering short of doing something stupid, what can I do to deter the dog from that area or any patches of garden I have? I plan to go to the council about the problem, and lay some of it on the town manager who is an acquaintance of mine, but in the meantime, any tricks out there to make my flowers and bushes unsavoury.
      Thank you in advance,
      Lynn
