How much backpacking experience do you have?

I started backpacking with this meetup group and quickly got hooked. Before that I'd done a good deal of car camping and long day hikes. My favorite trips include hikes with vistas in areas rich with history and campsites where I can view shooting stars.


I'm a four-season backpacker.

What Sonja is saying about this Meetup Group

A very welcoming group of people who are very open to sharing information about backpacking, camping and hiking.
