Help us live in a tent this summer!

Starting in a month, my girlfriend and I will be living for the summer in a 10x16, two room Kelty tent we bought on craigslist. We will be living/working on a farm outside of Olympia, WA. We'd love any advice/experience you might have on long-term tent living. We're super excited about it but we are aware it will suck sometimes... what sucked about it and how can we prepare for the suck? Lots more details inside on building a makeshift kitchen, hopefully cozy bedroom, etc. [more inside]

Thermarest Patching, Without Patch Kit?

My wife and I just held one of our thermarests underwater. We counted nine separate leaks bubbling air. Wet, it sounded like a squeaky radiator as all the air leaked out. I blame our sharp-clawed and inquisitive cats. Anyhow, I don't know if we can get to a camping store before the weekend-- does anyone have experience patching these things with bike tube kits, shoe goo, or other easily-available gunk?

Help me find an awesomesauce campground in Southern California!

Looking for some suggestions for camp sites in the vicinity of Southern California for a camping trip this weekend. Amenities-wise the basics would work fine - water, a fire pit, and level ground to pitch our tent. Anything above and beyond that is icing. The campsite must allow dogs (we plan on bringing our pug, Hoggle). We really enjoy trail hiking and solitude and we most likely won't be doing any kind of water-related activities, although picturesque lakes and streams are a plus. Past places we've enjoyed camping at: -Coral Pink Sand Dunes - outside of Kanab, UT -Tanner's Flat Campground - UT -Fernwood Lodge - Big Sur, CA -Joshua Tree State Park -Malibu Creek State Park This is going to be a weekend trip so the driving distance has to be manageable. So, please, no recommendations for Redwoods National Park or Zion or something like that.

Best 1.5 (Cheap) Days in Olympic National Park?

Myself and two friends have decided to do our annual reunion in Olympic National park but since we’re all short on vacation, we only have Friday night through Sunday afternoon.
