Recently took a job in the DC area, looking to get involved in some UL trips
Hello! My name is Noam, I graduated from the University of Maryland in December of 2011. Since then I have been working at a large consulting firm in DC. I have been backpacking for 2 years and recently downsized to reach a UL weight. Started with weekend trips in Shenandoah, around central PA and in Monongahela national forest. Recently completed the GR20 in Corsica which was my first long distance backpacking trip. Longest mileage in a day: 25 miles (pack-weight: 20-25lbs) Coldest night out: Something like 25 degrees (F)
No answer yet
Shelter: >Big Agnes Flycreek UL 1 Sleep: >Mountain Hardware Phantom 32 (with/Liner if below freezing) >Exped SynMat UL 7 Backpack: >Osprey Talon 44 liter (thinking about downsizing to 32 at some point)
When I fist started backpacking at a typical entry level weight it quickly became clear that the lighter my gear the more enjoyable the experience would become.
