Please relate, in general terms, your backpacking experience.

I've hiked Mt. Washington in a day, and several similar trails. No mountain climbing. I've climbed about 5,000 ft up Mt. Shasta. All day trips though.

What was your favorite backpacking experience?

There were so many great ones! Mt. Shasta was surreal. Bridal path in NH was exciting because I did it in four hours.

What was your funniest backpacking moment?

In high school, some kid puked in our 8 person tent... Wasn't funny at the time.

What was your most embarrassing backpacking moment?

Nothing comes to mind - I guess the best is yet to come!

What's the longest backpacking trip you've ever taken? (in mileage and/or days)

10 miles roughly with 3200 ft elevation


I'm a fairly proficient hiker, but have always done day trips. I would like to start doing multi-day, and this looks like a great way to learn. Hope to see you all on the trail!
