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

Anything from a overnighter to 5 days on the trail. The majority of the trips were done in the last seven years. Some places that I hiked were Yellowstone, Zion, Death Valley, Bryce Canyon, Rainier, Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains, Shenanadoah, ect.

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

Hi! I like to meet new people, hike different places and always pushing my limits.
