We're in pretty good shape on the equipment. We will have to upgrade our packs. We have daypacks and will need something that can handle at least 4 days with sleeping bags. Taking a trip to the nearby REI this week. We won't have to worry about carrying food; the cooking will be done by the campgrounds' staff.

I recommend contacting this guy about a pack:

He's not cheap, but he makes by far the best packs you buy. I have two of them, and I've used them from Alaska to South America. He's kind of a curmudgeon and his website sucks, but his packs are legendary.
