I'm debating which way to go.

On the one hand, it would be nice to have a camp set up and waiting when you get back, with the added bonus of not having to carry it around all day.

On the other hand, if you drop camp, you have to go back to get it. So if you're out during the day and decide you want to head somehwere else... Depending on how far out you got when you decided to move, it could take you a half day to get to it, pack and get back to where you were.
