More a day hiker than a backpacker at this point.
Spring and fall - I spent many years in the Army being too hot or too cold, so I don't do that on purpose anymore.
The AT was about 20 minutes from me in NoVA (Bear's Den, route 7 near Winchester - I used to get there 3-4 times a year. Havn't hiked/backpacked in NC/SC yet
Grew up in Oregon. Just moved to upstate after 22 years in northern VA. Love to do just about anything outdoors, especially hike.
