Aug 4th 2010 7:18PM Oh, we're all about "glamping"! Having grown up in Boy Scouts, I sure *loved* roughing it, but now, I'd much rather bring the luxuries of home outdoors. Since we don't do backpacking anymore, weight isn't an issue anymore. So, here goes:
. Got kids or some friends staying with you? It's all about 2-room tents. I recently even saw one at REI that had a base living room and other 'rooms' that attached onto it to make it almost an apartment! Nuts, I tell ya, but what a brilliant idea!
. Don't just bring an air mattress. Get the ones that are super cushy (like 12in+ thickness) and inflate it with a power inverter from your car. Your back will thank you for it!
. I totally agree with you about fitted sheets. Since air mattresses have a tendency to hot hold in heat very well, line it with a fleece blanket. Now, throw on a down comforter from home with an old duvet and you're set. You'll want to curl up in your bed away from home!
. Food... All of the above are great! We've had pre-cooked pasta that we just reheated in a pot to save time; rib-eye steak on the fire pit (BYO-Charcoal); Pizza on the grill (http://www.slashfood.com/2009/07/10/pizza-in-the-woods-foodie-flicks/); and much more.
"Be prepared", right?

Apr 9th 2010 12:43PM Even though I am addicted to being connected, my idea of a real vacation really only consists of anywhere there is no cell phone coverage. The closest I got to this was in Costa Rica. Oh, how I long to go back....

Here's my Tripadvisor review from a few years back.
Nov 13th 2009 12:19PM You forgot snot projecting out of one nostril sans tissue--which I saw some lovely mainlander tourists do at Taipei's Shihlin night market after they finished their meal next to me. I nearly threw up.
Nov 12th 2009 11:30AM Btw, did you notice that the lowest class (3rd class) is called Pu-ke? Get it? puke? That's where you hang with the chickens and goats.
Nov 12th 2009 11:28AM Oh, the sleep trains of China... How I remember it so well and so (frighteningly) vividly.... And I only went from Beijing to Liaoning with my mates, too.
