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

Since joining the backpackers I've gained a lot of experience. I've backpacked a variety of distances and terrains- from the gentle woods of the Midwest to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. My last trip was a week-long through hike of the amazing Wonderland Trail.

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)

Hi all. When I moved here from California, I worried there wouldn't be any good places to be outdoors. Thank goodness I found Chicago Backpackers! They know all the best spots, mount great trips and are terrific people.

What Mo is saying about this Meetup Group
