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

Started 30 years ago ... Wow, I'm old. Been many places & loved them all - Olympics, Sierras, Cascades, northern & central (MT/ID/WY) Rockies, Adirondacks. Still waiting to backpack Alaska & some others on the bucket list.

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

Introduction

I lead week-long, advanced trips to western destinations in July or August. Over the past 6 years, I have organized trips to wilderness areas in WY, MT, ID, & WA. If you're interested in planning a trip, drop me a line.
