I take a guitar with me. Alone, away from the background noise we are all used to, you really don't need an amp to practice, and the little battery amp I have works just well enough to practice. Power chord stuff sounds really good on it. Not much else, but I play almost every day when camping. This year I did not camp, so deer camp has been my living room. Deer Season has had me working up to actually making some noise with the strat. My deer camp set up this season is a CN2 neck on an SE body with GM .25's in it, through a DS-60 and a sonic maximizer into a Studio Pro 112. Still getting used to a strat again, and learning the .25 pickups. I once went three or four days, but usually I play every single day, deer season or not!
