Help us do Wales right.

A friend and I are planning a trip to Wales (we're both in the UK). The only thing she really wants to do is go to Snowdonia and do a bit of hiking, and the only thing I really want to do is go to Milford Haven, the town where my grandmother grew up. We also might want to visit a castle. How can we do this, without a car? [more inside]

Help me plan a trip to Joshua Tree, CA

Help me plan a 3-day trip to Joshua Tree (CA). Or alternatively, suggest another really cool natural area to check out in Southern California in late January. I am in my cousin's wedding in the L.A. area and am coming with my girlfriend. We decided to take a few extra days--she's never been to California and I've only ever kept my visits to family time, usually in the OC area. We're renting a car, so we'll have transportation. Is late January a good time to go? Do you have any recommendations for gear rental (doubt I'll be able to climb, unfortunately)? I have gear at home in Michigan, but I'd like to travel light. If you have alternative suggestions--they can be around L.A.--I'd love to hear them. Thanks.

Things to do in Guilin, China.

We're now on our China trip (thanks for the tips in our last question,), and are looking for specific suggestions on things to do in the Guilin area that weren't covered there. Extra points for off-the-beaten-path suggestions. We're definitely interested in beginner to intermediate hikes, bike rides, and boating. We also would love to see more rural sites, and the most spectacular scenery possible, but have been having trouble finding specific info on the area.

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]

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. How likely is it that there will be no free campgrounds available, being slightly after the end of the summer season? What are some similar quality campgrounds in the "between Anchorage & Denali" zone if Eklutna is fully booked? [more inside]
