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

I've been camping since I was a Boy Scout, and backpacking at least once every summer for almost 20 years on top of that. Joining the Chicago Backpackers has significantly increased my amount of time on trail, which is always a good thing.

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)

Hiking, running. Martial arts.

Introduction

I lead trips that range from six to 17 miles a day, usually over a weekend, mainly in Michigan, where I grew up and learned everything I know about backpacking.
