According to this article in April's 2013 Child Magazine, there's a reluctance to venture out into the wilds and pitch a tent due to an unwillingness to leave the usual creature comforts and a perception that camping itself is somehow dangerous.

In Left Hand Drive, Craig McGregor reflects on his personal journey, writing about and living through some of the most compelling and defining events of modern times.
From meeting his lifelong partner on a legendary ban the-bomb march in the UK, listening to the unreleased Blonde on Blonde with an ‘attentive’ Bob Dylan, and following the twists and turns of Canberra’s corridors of power from Whitlam to Gillard, Left Hand Drive sees this two-time Walkley Award winner at full throttle.

‘This is a memoir to treasure, from a wise and talented observer of the past half century.' Kerry O'Brien
‘Craig is hip to the hip but not really hip.’ Bob Dylan
