I've done some multi-day backpackers (hiking in the mountains with pack on, or canoe-camping with everything tied to the hull), it's fun despite UC. There's lots of woods around you, should nature call, and you need to use the facili-trees. Just bring some rolls of that camping-toilet-paper (tightly wound, without the hollow cardboard core) in a ziplock bag to save space and keep it dry.
I carry in water with my camelback bladder, and refill in mountain streams without filtering or boiling (dumb, I know, but I am lazy). If it's high up on the mountains, and emphasis fast-moving then I've been okay (drink from a murky, green, or slow moving water and your fooked). The iodine tablets taste bad lol. The filters are good, but have time on your hands to work (take a while) and add a pound or more to your pack. I try to hike light, around 26-28 pounds max (tent, food, sleeping pad, stove, water, etc.), as the more weight you carry the slower you go, and the more you will hurt.
Try and eat well, a lot of those preserved, pre-packed back-packing astronaut foods are full of crappy ingredients and taste like crap. Veggies do fine without refrigeration, easy to stir fry peppers, onions and other things over a little backpacking stove with some spices premixed in a ziplock bag. I'll run my dehydrator before going and have some meat jerky, dehydrated banana/strawberry/etc other fruits ready to munch on. Usually bring some trailmix, breads, bagels, etc which preserve well. Those Annie's homegrown organic, cardboard-boxed soups are good for backpacking (burn the box after use).
