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

I worked for 4 months in Denali NP Alaska and only went on back-country multi-day hikes twice, but several day hikes. I also worked in Big Bend NP Texas and did SEVERAL 13-16 mile day hikes.

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

Introduction

Being that I live in a big city, I want every opportunity to get back to nature and meet people who share that desire.

What Natalie is saying about this Meetup Group

You meet fascinating people and get a beautiful dose of nature.
