How would your self-gauge your backpacking experience level?

I'm pretty comfortable in the backcountry, as long as I'm on a trail and have a map. I don't have any map & compass abilities. I usually aim for 12-18 mile days, depending on terrain. I'm not fast, but don't mind catching up to a group at the snack breaks.

What was your longest backpacking trip?

A month on the AT last summer, about 400 miles between NY and NH.

Aside from the Appalachian Trail, what other places in the world have you dreamed of backpacking?

John Muir trail, Hadrian's Wall, PCT or CDT would be cool if I could ever find the time, the Long Path, the Long Trail, lots of other places I've never heard of before, and, of course, a thru-hike on the AT.

Were you a Boy Scout/Girl Scout (or equivalent)?

I was a girl scout for one year when I was seven, but I didn't like it and begged my mother to let me quit, which she did.

Do you agree to the conditions of the Liability Waver located in the Pages section?



I'm psyched to find this group--I've been section hiking the AT for the last two years.
