Hmm probably, it would be an adjustment but I think I could do it.

Yes but I'd prefer water and electricity.

I don't think I could unless I had solar panels so I can run ac or heat when needed.

This is exactly how I feel. I love backpacking and wilderness type camping, but I also love coming home and taking a hot shower with no effort on my part once a trip is over!

Quoting chicken13:

Yeah.  I could.  But I prefer amenities.

 I did when I was little. Could I-yes. Would I-no.

No way in hell. I wouldn't want to, for starters.

If I had to... well let's just say I would be royally fucked.

No, not without some help and/or education on how to do so.

Plus, I love electricity, internet and modern electronics. If I had to live off the grid, I don't think I would enjoy it that much.

I could do it minus the out house- I go to cs camp with my boys and I literally hike a mile to the dining hall to use the bathroom. It's usually a mile there and back, I hate the out houses. It's a really long walk when you wake up in the am!
