I'll just toss this hammock up between those two coconut trees on the North Shore

Backpacking Hammock filter: I currently use a MSR Hubba for backpacking but am intrigued by the idea of hammocks and would like to go with a hammock for my next few trips; it could possibly replace my tent for all non-desert camping. There's a ton of choices to go with, so help me if you can please. [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. Is there a way we could somehow combine a 4-10 mile day hike with a coastal experience in this amount of time? I've seen the wta.org and nps.gov sites but I'm sort of overwhelmed by choice and looking for recommendations. [more inside]

DIY tent upgrade - advice needed please

Our tent is OK but there's a gap between the sides and the groundsheet, which makes it rather chilly. How can I best make it more wind- and rain-proof? I think attaching a strip of some sort of waterproof material around the bottom of the sides, that could be tucked under the groundsheet, is the best option. But what sort of fabric? And how do I stop the water wicking up it from the ground and making the sides of the tent wet? [more inside]

Figuring out logistics of camping & hiking in Alaska

Camping in Alaska: I'm looking to camp at the Eklutna Lake campgrounds 3 weeks from now on way to a 4 day sojourn into Denali State Park. However, I can't reserve a spot in advance.

Driving from MA to MT, suggestions for stops along the way

Recently divorced, 39, and moving from MA to MT in early Sept. I was planning on driving along the I-90. I'm trying to figure out what is worth visiting, and also where to stop/camp along the way. This is about a 3000 mile drive. And I'm hoping to drive around 600 miles a day, but this is adjustable to some extent. I wouldn't mind spending extra days in some locations if its worthwhile. One stop I plan to make will be Niagra Falls. (I also have both USA and Canadian Passports, so I can cross the border ok.) I hope to camp most of the way. I also have a large 80lb doberman-mix, which complicates things slightly. I'd be willing to get off the I-90 to see some things if its worth it. I'm not in a rush.. I'm more interested in things found in nature rather than city-life type stuff. But stopping in some big cities for some notable food or sites wouldn't be rejected outright.

Maine cheaply, chiefly.

36 hours in Maine this weekend with a rental car. I am thinking of not getting a hotel room and instead car-camping. I'll be in Camden Maine for a wedding Friday and Saturday and plan to return to Boston late on Saturday to take a bus to DC. I want to spend as much of Friday wandering around Portland before driving to Camden and kind of want to spend the morning in Portland on Saturday, too. Is this a good idea? Any tips on quiet places to park and snooze?
