hiking without backpack?

Can I get away with hiking without backpack? I'm going on a trip soon, and there might be hiking involved. But, I also want to pack superlight, and don't really want to bring my hiking pack (it's a 30L pack, so it does take up some space). I've tried stowaway backpacks before but they are rarely comfortable. If I'm just bringing water, a clif bar, and my ID, do I really need a backpack? can I get away with a canvas tote? [more inside]

Outdoor Colorado Weddings

I'm posting this as anonymous as I have some friends and family who read this site, and they don't know we're this serious yet. My girlfriend and I are talking about getting married this summer if we can afford it and afford living together. We're looking at possibly Saint Malo off of Highway 7, Panorama Point or doing something in Rocky Mountain National Park. We're leaning more towards a summer wedding outdoors, June or July. Saint Malo is great, but expensive for what we want ($1000 for a few hours). Panorama Point in Golden Gate State park is more feasible. We're both really practical so we want our friends and family there but not at significant cost or debt. Other then Rocky Mountain National Park or Golden Gate State park, what are some good locations in Colorado for an outdoor wedding? In terms of cost, food for < 30 guests, location, photographer etc... what should we plan to spend? We're talking about doing it on a weekday.

Bachelor party in Savannah, GA

I'm planning a bachelor party in Savannah, GA for eight guys between 25 and 30. Being from the state, I'm familiar with Savannah and the night life. I'm more interested in what to do during the day. The stag is an outdoorsy forester who might like some outdoor stuff and also a huge reader. Any suggestions about nightlife, hotels, and other attractions would also be appreciated.

Where to get outdoors in North India?

We are traveling to India this January and are seeking some advice on where to go to get away from the big cities for a day or two. We have tickets for an arrival and Delhi and a departure from Mumbai and will have a total of 11 days in country. So far we have plans to explore Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. Since it sounds like these places will be quite crowded with both tourists and locals, our thought was that it would be nice to get away from the teeming masses of humanity for a day or two and maybe see some nature. Where can we do this without traveling too far? [more inside]
