What is your level of experience, beginner, intermediate or experienced?

More a day hiker than a backpacker at this point.

What times of year do you perfer to backpack?

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.

How often have you backpacked in the last year?


Where is your favorite places to backpack?

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.
