Last year I spent a week cycling and camping during BRAG (Bicycle Ride Across Georgia). That was a lot of fun and I'm now hoping to do Ragbrai someday. This also gave me the appreciation for hammock sleeping. I got a hammock tent last Christmas and have spent our last couple of car camping trips just sleeping in that.
Me, my wife, our 5 year old daughter, and our dog went on our first backpacking trip this weekend. It was only 1 mile into camp but it went really well and we look forward to getting back to doing bigger trips.
18 days trekking the Annapurna Circuit through the Himalaya Mountains was the best vacation I've ever had.
10 days backpacking in the Canadian Rockies (Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay, Banff) for our honeymoon.
Backpacked through the High Sierras and the day on the PCT through The Ansel Adams Wilderness was amazing.
3 days on the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu
The Black Mountain Crest Trail near Mt. Mitchell, NC is one of our favorites.
Backcountry trails in Grandfather Mountain, NC
Have camped and backpacked all around the Great Smoky Mountains. The blooming of the Flaming Azaleas on Gregory Bald in June is cool. The Synchronous Fireflies at Elkmont Campground right after Memorial Day is really cool.
Climbed Mt. Rainer and that was a fun experience.
North Georgia and the Georgia State Parks are nice.
Backpacking in January in -20 degrees through Linville Gorge, NC really sucked, lol
