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

Ive "backpacked" through Mexico and Europe. But that was just living out of a backpack and staying at hostels. Not really the backcountry backpacking, which is what I am interested in getting into.

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

What other backpacking-related activities do you participate in? (e.g. car camping, canoeing, cycling, running)

I love the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, sitting watching the clouds drift by. I want to get closer to nature and meet like minds.
