I'm 64 and I will camp out because I have the equipment to be comfortable. Tent, compact cot, self inflating air mattress, self inflating pillow, sleeping bag. Since it is almost summer I will have a compact battery op. Fan. All of it cost about as much as two nights in a name brand motel.

If you want a packable tent. Look at Academy for Magellin Kings peak II, two man tent. Apx $70 and it can handle heavy wind and rain on top of Mt Majesty in Ark. Did not leak a drop in two day rain!
Cot is only apx 6 in, off the floor and very small folded
My bedroll is also Magellin and can be worn like a robe in the morning with hoodie and pockets.
My mattress is Coleman. It's kid size! Runs from head to knees. This is to reduce size.

Common sense, the least common of the senses.

Now you've got me rethinking. I have a room booked through AirBNB for $65 a night but I may just cancel. The plus side, once I have the gear I have a reason to go more often....."but honey, I spent all that money on camping equipment, I need to use it".
