Question: What’s the biggest state park / hiking trail in or around Maryland?
All of the hiking trails and parks I know of are very small and close to busy roads. Doesn’t really feel like nature. Where can I go that would actually remove me somewhat from civilization?
Answer by ALL
I was following your question for a couple days in hopes of getting info myself. Since no one answered so far, I just say I know of a couple nice places but I’m not sure if they’re big enough for you.
1. Oregon Ridge in Hunt Valley, MD. Nice with hills.
2. McKeldin area in Marriottsville , MD
Both the above are good for 1-2 hour hikes (maybe 3-5 miles depending on how many side trails you take)
3. If these aren’t big enough, you can head on out to the Catoctin Mountain Park. There are many miles of trails out there.
Question: Which is better in call of duty black ops zombies? Camping or runnning around?
I have camped and made it to level 15 several times. But sometimes in random matches when i find a match, some people don’t agree with me camping.
Answer by Cryme Tyme13
It’s better to run around. You can kill more zombies and find better secret areas.

Entry from: Sooke, Canada Entry Title: “A whale of a time hiking in Vancouver Island” Entry: “Juan de Fuca trail This trail was formed to celebrate the 1994 Commonwealth games and it follows the coast, in a slightly less extreme version of the more famous West Coast trail (which requires reservations). We only had the long weekend for it, so we limited ourselves to the most interesting 29 kms and gave ourselves time to enjoy the views. Our research had suggested that the trail was quite a tough walk but we didn’t find it so. On day one we left ourselves just 8 kms to hike, and it followed a trail soft with pine needles through giant pine tree rainforest. It was very green from moss, and cool beneath the trees. Difficult descents or crossings were made from steps cut into massive fallen trees. I think we found a cougar track in the mud. No cougars though, and no bears either, although we looked hard. The park makes great efforts to alert you to the possibility of finding bears and cougars, with catchy slogans like ‘a fed bear is a dead bear’ (not to mention ‘rodents can ruin your breakfast’). My favourite warning was on the bear cache – where it suggested referring to the website for more information. That’ll be handy. We had lunch overlooking a cove where seals (harbour seals I thought) swam sedately …

Entry from: Naukluft, Namibia Entry Title: “Day 6 – Hiking the flats on auto drive” Entry: “7 April 2009 – Tuesday (Day 6 – 16km to go) The gators seemed like a hit. My success has inspired everyone (even those who already had a pair of gators) to make use of my method to keep the seeds out of their socks. Although the real gators provided protection against the seeds directly getting stuck into the socks, when the seeds fell off the plants they would lodge themselves against your legs and eventually worked their way down into the socks. So green bags were brought out, cut up, wrapped around the feet and securely taped with insulation tape. There was no sign of any heat rash from the previous day. Though may have had something to do with the fact that the gators were pretty well shredded by the time I had reached the hut, so besides have plastic wrapped around my heals, they were still pretty well ventilated. Early morning started off with a hike to the foot of Die Valle falls. We spent a fair bit of time just admiring the height and stature of the waterfalls as Black Eagles flew up above to and from their nests. We were told we would hike to the top of the falls, it seemed like a very long way up, and I guess is why the steep hike up is called Groot Hartseer (“Great Heartsore”). Yesterday’s hike …

I knew i wanted to stop there having passed it on my previous hitch hiking adventure. Obviously seeing as it was raining A LOT i didn’t really do much, but i still had an awesome time….and the weirdest thing of all is that the first night i had a whole hostel completely to myself, that is a new experience and i must say a weird one for sure lol. After hitch hiking here, one of the dudes was a bread delivery man and he was super nice….he even gave me 2 loaves of bread!!!! Really nice granary bread too….ahhh such a luxury for me, and how nice of him. Yeah i know you shouldn’t accept sweets off strangers, but firstly it wasn’t sweets, and secondly i’d just bloody got in a car with him so really i think taking the bread was fine….and yeah i’ve been living off it for the past few days . I did manage to have a little mish up the random hill/mountain thing and it was pretty awesome. To get there i kinda just followed the sea which took me to a beach. Ok i loved this beach, there was no1 around and it was just super tranquil. I did my little handstand picture and …
Question: I wanted to find out more about camping sites and details of camping around Austin?
This is our first time, my husband and I are planning a camping over the weekend. Is it a good time/weather to camp. Where can we go? What do we need to be prepared for? We don’t own any camping equipment yet and are still exploring. Can we rent it from someplace. Answers/Sugestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
Answer by Anemone
I don’t about renting camping equipment. You might be better off trying to borrow some. Another alternative would be to do a search for cabin rentals. There are lots of cabins around the Lake Travis area. If you do manage to find some camping gear, Enchanted Rock is an awesome camping spot. It’s a little cool yet, but nice for hiking and exploring.
Question: What are good hiking trails around Denver and Colorado?
I will be in Denver in late Oct, early Nov and am looking at spending 5-7 days hiking in mountains. Can you reccomend some hikes or parks I could go to? I am an experienced hiker with good stamina, and don’t mind easy scrambles.

Be prepared for snow in the high country.
