    Just curious if anyone wanted to give some feedback on things they like to do in the outdoors? I want to try some different things this summer.

    I would like to visit some mountains in PA(where I live) and go hiking/camping.

    Anyone else have some ideas for fun?

    I love hiking and camping in the summer, although I live in the absolute flatest section of Ohio possible, so the better hiking is more so for when I get to travel. Most of my days in the summer are spent bike riding, on my trampoline or skinny dipping in the pond icon_lol.gif

    Camping and hiking has been mentioned. I also like rafting, rowing, and hunting. Rafting can be white-water with a group, canoe, Kyak, or something more posh like crew if you have access to a boathouse. for hunting, I prefer Bow Hunting to gun, but get licensed first.

    Lake swiming in PA is great in summer (I was a PSUer). Had a great time when I spent a summer up at State College.

    If you have water nearby, go kayaking. It's a lot of fun and it's a great upper body workout. If you don't have a roof rack (or don't want one) there are some very well made inflatable kayaks that you can pack up and throw in the trunk.

    I understand that there is a gay nude camping resort in West Virginia and you aren't that far from there. you might want to look into that. It isn't as adventurous as the Appalachian trail but has it's possibilities.

    Whitewater rafting in fayette county West Virginia is extreme and I do mean extreme. You also camp there and spend the day on the river. The upper Gauley river in September is incredible. Your safety is not guaranteed. That always adds a rush.
