How much backpacking experience do you have?

Backpacked alot (smaller 3-7 day trips) on the AT back in the day. I've trekked in VA, WVA, NC, GA, KY, IL, MO, SD,WA, NY, CO & IN. Most of the trips have been of intermediate/advanced difficulty. Also into mountaineering (climbs include Rainier, Baker, various Rockies). Currently training for a future climb of Denali.


Howdy all! I like to backpack, climb, and camp. The outdoors have a way of creating clarity for me...or perhaps thats the bourbon!!! (-: I sing/play in a rock band called Always the Villain, and am into Martial Arts (1st Deg TKD).
