How much backpacking experience do you have?

I have been on two backcountry hiking/camping excursions. My first trip was a six-day hike through mighty Yosemite and, three years later, I was fortunate enough to see Rocky Mountain National Park before it was devastated by the Summer 2013 storms. I've also done some local, day-hiking in the Indiana Dunes, Starved Rock and up in Wisco as well.


Living in and around Chicago all my life, the sweltering vistas of the summer mountains call to me so I try and get out as much as possible. However, I recently enjoyed a winter meetup when we broke sub-zero temps, too. I can be FAIRLY adventurous.
