Thorn-resistant pants?

I'm an avid Geocacher and in my area that often means encountering thorns and other hazardous (to me) plant life. I don't mind shedding some blood for fun but it's murder on my clothing. Since I'm in the market for some new pants, what should I buy? Bonus if they're convertible (the bottoms zip off and make shorts).

Where in the NE US can a new backpacker get his backpacking wings?

I have decided to spend my (non-hypothetical) vacation backpacking alone for the week, in the mid-atlantic or northeastern US. However, I am not sure where is best for me to do this, as I have a number of minor concerns and have not done extended backpack travel on a schedule like this -- at least not as a civilian. Specific concerns follow, and overlap somewhat, so apologies for that. [more inside]
