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

Enough to keep up without dying on the trail or starving at camp. Grand total of 6 trips, with day hikes ranging 6-20 miles/day. I prefer weekend/3-day trips, though I'd like to hike some national parks once I have more experience.

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

No answer yet

What other backpacking-related activities do you participate in? (e.g. car camping, canoeing, cycling, running)
