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

I grew up in Northern Michigan and did a lot of camping, hiking and backpacking as a kid. I went to college at Northern Michigan University in Marquette and did a few solo weekend trips at Pictured Rocks. But since moving to Chicago 4 years ago, I have not had an opportunity to get out of the city (no car) and have not done any camping or hiking. Needless to say, I miss the woods and would love to find a community of like minded outdoor adventurers.

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