Please describe your overnight backpacking experience.

My only backpacking experience is a 5-day rim to rim Grand Canyon backpacking trip with a friend. I have extensive hiking experience and some car camping experience.

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

I own everything I need to sustain myself for about a week.

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

I am comfortable backpacking with a fella or two. I can certainly hold my own.

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 work a Monday-Friday job so depending on work load, it's possible to make arrangements with two weeks notice.


I just moved to the Bay area from Chicago and love experiencing the outdoors alone so the idea of small group backpacking is very appealing to me.
