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

Several weekend trips, US and Europe, plus a 21-day excursion into the King's Canyon area, full leave-no-trace training, bear-protection and avoidance, rope ascents and descents. Several self-supported cycling tours including camping.

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)

Introduction

Hi Everyone, I have been looking to return to backpacking for some time and hope we can enjoy some wonderful trails together.

What Carl S. is saying about this Meetup Group

Effective way to meet others with shared interests. Backpacking is a logistics-intensive activity and sharing knowledge and resources makes it easier to plan and carry out trips. Information and training (Bootcamp) for new and novice backpackers has quite high value.
