    Default 'a picnic' or 'picnicking'

    I want to say, "I'm looking forward to a picnic this weekend."
    But, some other said, "I'm looking forward to picnicking this weekend."
    The latter sounds quite strange to me, but in a dictionary, it might sound
    good. Does it sound natural to you?

    Always appreciate your help.

    We can use it as a verb, but not very often, so the first example sounds more natural to me.
