Started backpacking in 2012, and have done quite a few trips since then. Longest was in July 2013 with the Sierra Club, which was 50 miles in three days along the PCT section G (Kennedy Meadows to Horseshoe meadows). Go on about 6-8 trips per year. Just did the Yosemite Snow Creek trail UP (ouch!) and the Yosemite Falls Trail down, whee! Last October did a three day, two night trip to Gem Lake in Stanislaus Forest (GOREGOUS!!)
3-4 day loops in the High Sierra!

Have been enjoying backpacking for the last few years; lightening up more and more; enjoy getting out in the Sierra and meeting other trekkers.
