Does anyone like to hike or camp? If so what kind of gear do you have and where do you hike or camp? What kind of pack do you have?

Yes, I've got a 3 person tent, sleeping bag, knife, matches and some beer. I've camped near Windham in NY but I usually got in the White Mountains in NH.

Camp every year in Yosemite. Most years we hike to Half-Dome. It's 14-16 miles and supposed to be 8-12 hours or so. It can be done quicker if you didnt have slow-pokes with you. I've had people go with us every year and never make it to the top of Half-Dome. For some it's too much. Either the hike or the final climb on the cables is too scary. But my daughter did it at 6 or 7 years old. So it's not that bad. But people fall to their deaths all the time.

I do want to hike Mt Whitney some day. But coordinating schedules on top of getting one of the coveted backcountry passes makes it difficult.

i'd also like to hike the Pacific Crest Trail one day.

We also camp on the beach in CA most summers or in CO/UT/AZ/WY every other summer.

Standard camping equipment for the family. My friends have the back country equipment when needed. Water filters, portable stoves etc. I do want to hike more so I can get a frame pack. Otherwise i use my mt bike hydration pack that carries 3 liters of water.

I hike quite a bit around Tahoe and the PCT.

I grew up hiking in the Adirondack mountains in NY and that is till one of my favorite places to explore.

Some great news for all out hikers and campers out there!!

TruSnow will soon be carrying a full lineup of outdoor gear and camping supplies!

we do a ton (or at least as much as possible) of backpacking out here in the Tahoe area, and quite a bit in central Nevada where there are some great spots (and hardly any people) as well.  I'd think it's a pretty natural transition for snowboardings to stay in the mountains in the summer by hiking (although we can probably get some turns well into July with all the snow this year).  Glad to hear I can use my discount on camping gear at TS this summer, thx Doug

We try to camp at least a few times each summer but we go on a different hike almost every weekend once the weather gets nice.  I am worried there will be a ton of fire restrictions this summer though as we have already had quite a few wildfires.

I would recommend a big knife or a hatchet and some waterproof matches. Camping stoves are also a plus if you don't want to cook over an open fire. A big can of bug spray is always nice. Don't forget the marshmallows.

state parks, national if you have them - Pretty much all trail maps are available online varying by state; so you can print out your own specific size or put the PDF on your mobile device if you're just going for the day.

We have only gone camping 2 times, it has turned into our annual thing during the summer.  We haven't done real camping yet though, we have only been doing "luxury" camping and what I mean by that is that we have water and a public restroom.  LOL

That's like the people that go "camping" in their 20 foot Motor Home with satellite TV and a full kitchen and bathroom.  I have actually had people tell me they have gone "camping" and never actually vetured more than 10 feet from the Motor Home.  Weak Sauce.

Yeah, we've only been to the campsite where Snow Summit is, but we're planning on trying to get a spot in Yosemite this summer.

Camping is different than backpacking.  When I car camp, I go somewhat in style.  I have a Coleman tent that I can stand up in and my family of four fits into.  We usually go to state parks, where showers and flushing toilets are available.  When I backpack, I have the REI half dome 2 man tent, freeze dried food and my dog carries all his food in his own pack.
We haven't done any hardcore backpacking yet, but have done a few portions on the Oregon PCT and some of the trails along the Columbia Gorge.  We are hoping for an anniversary trip to the Wallowas one year....

That is still different from driving an RV to the mountains and sitting inside watching satellite TV lol.  I totally agree though, they are two different things.  Camping can usually be done pretty spur of the moment as long as you have the gear, but backpacking usually takes some time to plan out as you have to take everything you will need for a few days on your back.

I grew up hiking in the Adirondacks in NY, and like Doug, it's still one of my favorite spots.  I hike here in the Greens in VT quite a bit as well.  I don't camp that often but mostly because I don't have a lot of friends who enjoy it.

I enjoy backpacking and camping during the summer...I have a northface backpack and love it...its made for week trips. Other than that my favorite trips during the summer are to do a river loop in a canoe and camp near the river...doesn't get better than that...especially if you do it with a bunch of buddies

P.S.  I've got a gigante LoweApline pack (65l+15l) that I can carry a ton of stuff in -- which usually means I end up carrying all shared gear and some of my wife's gear, plus dog food -- and I like to take my s&w .40, especially in the Nevada backcountry

We have a huge tent too but with 2 rooms.  It's not a hassle to put up but a hassle to clear the rocks and stuff out of the way to fit the large space.

if u are going to buy a pack i recommend an external frame. everyone now is all about the internals which work for Sh*t. honestly if you are camping in summer there isnt a lot u need. just bring rain gear the rest is bs and will make it exciting if u get lost, but take it from an army person that has spent plenty of time in the field being wet blows

I got a 50 + 10 pack that is internal frame because I got a really good deal on it. And to save some money I am going to make a stove out of a pineapple can. I'll just get a little mess kit that is just a pot and a lid so I can eat whatever.

Camping and hiking are good ways to pass time until the next boarding season.  Day hikes with the dog are along the coast.  Camping is usually at the lake.

I've not done much hiking or camping in the past but that should change. Boarding has definitely promoted outdoor activities for me all year round. I like running so hiking should be much better scenery. If/when I go, I'd probably bring a good pair of boots or hiking shoes (if dry) --> Vibram FiveFingers KSO are pretty cool for hiking. Goretex shell would be wise to take along with NorthFace backpack.

And of course I'd bring a tonne of photography gear with me. Probably D700 and glass for photos and D5000 and gopro for vids. :)
