How much backpacking experience do you have? (e.g. "None," "I went on one trip years ago," "I've thru-hiked the AT.")

I've been involved with the group since 2010. In that time I've been on countless weekend trips around the Midwest and several multi-day trips, including Grand Canyon NP, Zion NP, & Denali NP.

What do you hope to get out of this group? (e.g. one trip a year, backpacking buddies, get closer to nature)
