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

I have backpacked for the past 4 years or so in AZ through desert and canyon areas. I have also explored Utah and Ca.

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 everyone! I just moved here from AZ. I used to backpack a lot in AZ, Utah, and Ca. Looking to learn more about backpacking opportunities in the midwest. I also sleep in a hammock when I backpack. Many more trees here in the midwest!
