I use the camping save fairly regular, especially after killing a ton of animals and collecting their pelts/meats.
One too many times I have gone on a hunting spree and then been killed by a cougar or bandit and lost everything.
Same. I literally went hunting for like 4 hours, then fell off a cliff and died and lost it all. Was SERIOUSLY pissed off.
Apparently if you use the horse deeds, they're a quick way to save the game without advancing time. Never bought one yet, but from what I've read on other forums, if you use one it auto saves and you'll respawn at your nearest hideout if you die.
