Did Abraham Maslow go camping? If one looks at his famous hierarchy of needs, he certainly understood what was important -- that the base of everything including his pyramid are our basic physiological needs for food, water, warmth and rest. (I would add a place to poop.) These are the things we worry about and plan for when we go camping.
But that is why it is called a hierarchy of needs; there are others that are not as important but make life worth living. You could get by on a camping trip with a Kraku compact stove that fits on your fingertip and weighs one and a half ounces, but if you have higher needs, like belongingness and love, perhaps you need a bigger, better kitchen for camping.
