My limited wisdom from my first backpacking trip

I just had a freelance piece picked up by Yahoo: “Eight things I learned as a first-time backpacker.”  I’d be interested in comments from those of you with more experience who can add your two cents’ worth.

What a weekend here in New Hampshire! Humid, of course, but that’s July for ya. No rain today where I live. I checked out a place today that a reader recommended, and it was a treat. Photos & post to come in a couple of days.
