View Full Version : Backpacking

Well, this is it: the kids will be visiting their Dad and friends for the summer. In a couple of weeks I am stepping out my door with a pack, climbing a convenient mountain in Catskill park, and not coming down until I'm damn good and ready.

Who has done this? It's been a long time for me.

I envy you.

I love hiking and camping.
Spent a month in the bluffs of MN one summer when I was 20.
Good times good friends.
I like the sun, the rain and sleeping outside.

I love to hike ( flat long trails as I have torn ACLs) Bluff and rock climbing I have done and did enjoy, but the knees just won' t take it.

I imagine it will be so peaceful. What are you doing for food?
Do you know if they make soy jerky?

Bugs me.. my friends all bring flat meat jerky with them so it takes no room and I always had to stuff a bag of carrots in.
