I've never really camped anytime other than summer, but I'd like to start. Considering my limited time I'd like to get some enjoyment out of it, rather than just wet, miserable survival like some trips I see people take. I have a FZJ80 Land Cruiser with a sleep platform in the back. It does get cold at times with the large interior, but it's always dry, up off the ground, and more secure than a tent. Where are your favorite spots within a couple hours of Portland? Any other tips, tricks, advice, etc. would be appreciated.
