Please describe your overnight backpacking experience.

I enjoy longer trips, minimum of two nights, and have the flexibility for longer journeys as well.

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

Everything I need to be self sufficient.

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

No answer yet

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?

I don't own car as I use a bicycle for transportation, and BART/Caltrain doesn't work that early. I live in Oakland just a few blocks off of I580. Would a pick up be possible? Near BART can work too. I've also taken the train to Merced and have started trips from there.


I'm enjoying a getting out these past four years, including solo trips, after a two-decade hiatus.

What Greg L. is saying about this Meetup Group

Just had my introduction to this group with a two-night trip last week. Looking forward to more of them!
