Poll Opened Responses

Are you interested in Backpacking or Camping?

Backpacking means hiking with a tent and other equipment on your back into the forest and camping in the wilderness (i.e. without bathrooms). It requires that you have a large backpack, a sleeping bag, a mattress pad and perhaps a tent (we share tents). For the purpose of this poll, serviced camping means staying at a campground with parking spaces and shower facilities. Would you be up for either or both or none?

Would you be willing to share a queen size bed?

I am planning to rent a lodge that has several queen size beds and I'm forced to put two people in each to keep the price reasonable. Since we do not have many couples among our members, I would like to know how open people are to sharing beds. It doesn't matter whether you want to go on the trip or not (it's not even posted yet), I would just like to know this in general. Please chose one option (they get more inclusive as you go down the list, meaning that if you check "would share with another member" it would include sharing a bed with a friend or partner). Please be sure to check only one of the four options FOR YOUR GENDER! For the purpose of the vote, let's assume there would be two blankets in the bed or you could bring a sleeping bag.
