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

A couple of 3-4 day backpacking trips with REI in the Sierras and Rocky Mountains. Also did a week of backpacking in Iceland. A lot of day hiking experience besides that.

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

Love the outdoors - backpacking, hiking, skiing, bowhunting and scuba diving. I've been living in Chicago for the last 15 years, it's become my adopted home.
