This was my toughest backpacking trip in a long time. 26 miles in 2 days, over 6,200 elevation gain.
4,000 ft alone today in 12.3 miles; most elevation was gained in 3 single miles alone.
But so worth it.
Great practice trips for the Enchantments next month

Another camping night near Nine Mile Canyon this weekend. I had to cancel a Green River canoe trip this week so that's another four camping nights I could've had. I'm up to 35 nights in the RV this year, definitely not gonna make my goal of 40 nights roughing it this year.

When I was living in my RV, someone on here told me that it counted toward bag nights because I was sleeping in a bag. Actually, that someone was @Artemis, who I think started the original thread. So in my book you’re valid counting your nights in your trailer. Maybe someone else can chime in with their opinion. To most people, sleeping in a camp trailer is roughing it.

34 nights, after a quick trip to Yosemite to visit Obata Lake. One night in Hodgdon Meadows, and then up to Tuolumne to hike cross country into a lake i only learned about in the last two weeks. Quite wonderful.

8 nights for me this year. Less than I normally do.

July 14-18th (4 nights) at Silent Lake provincial park

Sept 14-17 (3 nights) at Killbear Provincial Park

Sept 21 (1 night) at Silent Lake provincial park.(was a test for 1. How our dog would handle camping, he did ok and 2. Whether we could manage camping at 30F, we managed but it was cold).

Update:
Also spent Dec 2, 2022 in a tent as part of a fundraiser for a charity committed to fighting homelessness in my community.

Temperatures went down to around 30F, with 30-40mph winds, plus rain. Because I was just in my backyard I just layered my sleeping bags up to stay warm / dry. I was using our least nice tent and discovered it doesn't perform well in the rain....
