Please describe your overnight backpacking experience.

Dozens of trips, mostly up to now they have been solo.

Do you own or borrow the major pieces of backpacking gear needed for a trip?

Everything, sometimes more than one of certain items.

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


Many group trips start as early as Thursday or Friday morning. Would you be able to join one of those trips from time to time? If not, feel free to organize trips to suit your schedule.

I'm semi-retired and self-employed, so no problem with departing early.


A long time backpacker, I still love finding new (to me) places. I'm continually refining my equipment for lighter weight and better function.
