That's gonna be hard... you are looking at maybe a Holiday Inn Express in some suburb and even then, those might be in the $120 range, but at least you can say you stayed at one.

Best Western includes a continental breakfast, I think like cold milk and cereals and some packaged muffins.

Hey! I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express the night before last, and it was actually a heck of a lot nicer than the supposed 4-star place they used to put us up at.

I lived at a Holiday Inn for two and a half months. It was very nice.

Probably not. Like the groundhog that saw his shadow, he just turned and ducked back down in his hole.

FYI, for those of you into camping and such, Moosejaw Mountaineering is the shiz-nit. Name-brand, high-end gear, usually quite a bit below retail, AND they give you 10% of what you spend back in rewards points that you can use to buy more gear with. I just made my first order from them the other day, and it shipped today. Just because they felt like it, they doubled my rewards points on the order, too! Also, they love to throw random little "free gifts" in your package, too. My sister has ended up with a few shirts and such that way, and used her reward points to buy a Therm-A-Rest sleeping pad (normally $80-120), among other things.

That's one of the reasons I love shopping at REI. Getting that check at the end of the year was great.

If they beat Moosejaw's prices, I'd get stuff there too. I probably will anyways, though, lol.

Don't know about prices. I haven't had the need to buy camping stuff in some time. I will be shortly since spring is coming and I enjoy taking my kids camping. Need a new tent.

Yeah, I've been slowly building up my equipment as I can, and decided to use the tax refund for it this year. One of the things I bought was this tent:

http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/sho...8_10000001_-1_

For when I have a larger group of friends going with me, like I hope to have next month. I had a cheaper, walmart Ozark Trail brand one that I used last year, but it fell apart on me (stretch line in the poles broke, and it just seemed to be cheap quality all around), so I junked everything but the fly off of it (kept that for my hammock). My stepdad kept the stakes and I think one of the poles that didn't break to have as a spare, but I was through with it.

I also finally got a thermarest pad of my own (I'd been using my uncle-sam issued one, which is nice, but I'd like one I don't have to worry about turning in when I get out, lol), new hiking shoes, some other stuff.

That's great that you get out and go camping. Two springs ago I took my oldest son to Lake Mineral Wells State Park in Texas for a camping trip. He had a blast. We did hiking and the sort. We were going to go again last year but had trouble reserving a spot so we did other things instead. This year I'll be in a class for a week so we might have to wait till summer to go do something.

We are doing our family camping/vacation trip in the second week of July because that's when both the wife and I managed to get time off from work.

This year it is a mix of everything that someone has mentioning that they wanted to do over the last year including some time in Minneapolis and Duluth, along with a lot of Lake Superior shoreline hiking.

I'm going to be spending my tax refund for similar stuff. I am going on a section hike of the AT this summer. So I need a backpack and backpacking sleeping bag. I have a campsite one, but it's too bulky to really hike up the AT with. Plus, it's a -20 bag, which I don't need in the summer.

That sounds like a great adventure waiting to happen. Hiking is one sport or exercise that you want to have equipment that is as light as possible.

That's one of my lifetime goals, to thru-hike the AT. I've done some backpacking in the smokies before, and loved it. If I had a different crew going with me, I'd try some backpacking, but I don't think some of my friends going will be quite up to that, lol. I do plan on some decent day hikes, but I'm worried about weather that time of year.
