I am going for a 110 mile, 6 day hike in Virginia's back country for the first time. What are some things (small or large) you always bring with you (not obvious like a multi-tool/knife) that make the experience much better? Looking for quick/easy tips!

I want to go camping this weekend somewhere inside a 3 hour drive (or so) from Seattle. I'd prefer backcountry camping so I've got some isolation. But I don't particularly want to hike and camp in the snow, so I need to stick to a low elevation. What are some good options?

Sometime from March to early summertime several of us would like to go on a backpacking trip from NYC. I need to hear about nice hikes in the Catskills. [more inside]

Big Sur and the Ventana Wilderness offer limitless camping potential. I'm new in the area and would appreciate the recommendation of experienced troopers.
Specifically: drive-to primitive no rules backcountry with vista - surface running water a big plus.
Whither goest man?
