Can anybody tell me if both of the sentences of the following are correct?
A.) Are you having a backpacking trip now?
B.) Are you backpacking now?
I think both of my sentences are correct.
Thanks in advance!
Neither sentence is very good.
If a guy is standing there with a backpack on, "Are you backpacking now?" seems like a pointless question.
Similarly, I can't see the call for the first sentence either.
More useful/likely are:
"Are you going on a backpacking trip?" (Leave the 'now' out).
I'm also not sure exactly what a "backpacking trip" is. "Are you going hiking?", "Are you going on a hike?" are reasonable questions.
Your sentences are grammatical, just not natural. I think it's mainly the 'now' in them.
