How much backpacking experience do you have?

I'm a novice with some experience. I have gone hiking and camping often growing up (and by camping- I mean actual camping i.e. a tent and fire or camp stove as opposed to a double wide:-) Two years ago I did backpack 75 miles of the North Country Trail in Michigan's UP with my dad and brother. I also took a backing course my freshman year of college and we did some backpacking along the Manistee River in MI. I would like to expand and eventually undertake more than just a 4 day trip. I'm hoping to meet people with can teach me and help me reach this goal!


Hi, my name is Laurel and I teach elementary school for CPS, which gives me the ideal schedule to go outside and enjoy summer trips!
