I used to backpack a lot, by myself and with my wife or small groups. I want to get back to it. I'm also new to this area and don't want to backpack by myself anymore.

Please describe your overnight backpacking experience.

I backpacked in Romania, Turkey and the Himalayas. Also the Rockies, San Jone mountains and the high desert and mountains on the Colorado Plateau. Never backpacked in the Sierra Nevada though.

What items in your backpacking "kit" do you own?


If you are female, are you comfortable backpacking (seperate tents) with men?

Well I have to answer this question but I'm a man... I have no problem backpacking with men or women or whatever.

Many group trips start as early as Thursday or Friday. Would you only be able to go on weekend trips - start no sooner than Friday after work and end Sunday evening?

Hmm, I will have to see...

    Eriz, Is the photo of you backpacking the narrows in Zion? Always wanted to do it. I was on the Chalk Mtn hike and thought you might be interested in bay area backcountry buddies meetup group which has social get togethers to meet other backpackers.

    Hi Erez,
    I am Chintha. I was on the waiting list for this hike and just got confirmed. I live in San Jose near Los Gatos/ Campbell area. I would like to carpool if you're still looking for someone to carpool with.
