For those folks who like to sack out in the woods, battle bugs and eat food cooked over an open fire, it’s a great time of year. Camping season is here.

But camping is a controversial hobby, one that people seem to either love or hate. How about you? Are you a happy camper or are you at zero with nature?

Sound-off, Milwaukee, about your thoughts on temporary living in the great outdoors.

Camping rocks. Camping is an affordable vacation that provides serenity that’s  not attainable in the city. Plus, it challenges you to employ skills you don't use beyond the campground. Camping reminds that the simplest things -- food, shelter and the company of friends or family -- are the most important and enjoyable aspects of life.

Camping sucks. I find camping uncomfortable and boring. I don’t like to go without showering, I hate bugs and living in nature is not my thing. Give me a hotel, motel or bed and breakfast any day over a camp ground. Camping is for bears and hippies.
