I wouldn't recommend camping for the annual defragmentation then.

It already wasn't camping anyway.

In "Maps and Dreams," which is surely the silliest book about camping ever written, Hugh Brody spends about 300 pages describing how a tribe of Indians in British Columbia has maintained its simple, traditional, non-western ways against the onslaught of evil Europeans.

Its native lifestyle includes what you would expect -- rifles, violence and the debauchery of 8-year-olds with whiskey -- and one you might not: When they go into the wilderness to hunt meat (umm, meat), they take along automatic washing machines.

Ah, wilderness!
