Lonerider, one of the newer 'credit card' size digital cameras similar to the Canon Elph series are as simpistic as you can get when in full auto mode and are compact enough to carry anywhere.  Mine slips easily into my jersey pocket, and with a lanyard around my neck I can shoot on the fly on the bike if I need to or off the bike it's always on me.  The best camera to take is the camera you'll use, and to use it you must have it on you, not buried in a bag somewhere.  Sometimes those quick shots are some of the best.

Lonerider, have you tried the recumbent euro-style seats, such as M5, Bacchetta's Euromesh, or RANS Hoagie?  Much better lumbar support, and the stiffness you are looking for is there.  I ride a Euromesh on two of my bikes and love them.  Just a thought....

Quiet, privacy, and personal space trump everything for me, and I'm willing to work (set up/take down tents, etc.) or pay (moderate motel prices) to get it.  However, the prospect of ultimate comfort in a natural setting with a small group does appeal to me.  Motels many times mean spending the night in commercial/suburbia districts, and tents may mean a commercial campground with kids/families or a 'tent city' on organized tour rides.  Your concept could offer the natural setting where there may be no other accommodations, and would be attractive if the quiet, privacy, and space issues are resolved.  Maybe a caravan of smaller camper trailers?  Other ideas?
