Oh, no doubt! Some of my favorite weeks were the ones when I'd throw my tent in my backpack and head out in the Cascades for a week of lone bliss! But now I'm getting older and getting off the ground is a bit more work, so My wife and I bought a Coleman pop-up (1992 Cedar). We went on our maiden voyage on the 26th, 27th, and 28th of August to Fort Ebey Campground over on Whidbey Island. My birthday is the 8th, and we have reservations over at Deception Pass. (We can't seem to stay away from Whidbey!) Where did you backpack? Ever do the Devil's Dome/Jackita Ridge loop or the Chilliwack Valley/Copper Ridge Loop? Good hikes!
