Oh definitely, like I said above this is going to be a short trip... The main place I'm looking into now is basically a half day/day hike and then we'd be setting up camp for a couple days and then heading back. Basically I just don't want to camp in a crowded campground!
I do know of one guy who hiked the entire Appalachian trail with his dog though I would never attempt that(would probably kill me lol).
