I have only backpacked twice--20 years ago when I walked the West Highland Way, and 18 years ago when I did some switch-back trail building on a Sierra Club trip in Wyoming.
Hello, I'm recently retired and want to do some backpacking. I love walking, but am not used to carrying a load, so I want to learn more about backpacking before I go off on a long trip.
