Introduction

My husband and I love nature and want to find ways to spend more time outdoors. We figure learning how to backpack would be the way to go. Both of us currently work for a contract lab in the western suburbs but reside right outside of chicago.

What Jorie is saying about this Meetup Group

AWESOME! What a blessing to find a group and learn this hobby! Thanks so much for all who take the time out to help teach others!
