I love fast-paced, day hikes and multiday backpacking...

Describe your backpacking experience and background, please include longest mileage in a day (with pack) and coldest nights out.

Coldest- in snow in March 2011, with this group, actually. I haven't passed 20 miles in a day with a pack, but I know I could.

Describe your most recent outdoor adventure. When was it? How did you set it up? Did the weather cooperate? How did it go?


The Big Three: what specific gear (not just brands) do you use for your three-season shelter system, sleep system, and backpack? (It's okay if it isn't ultralight!)


Help us understand your reason for joining DC UL Backpacking, including your goals for lightening your load and quickening your backpacking pace.

I like quicker paces, challenging terrain, knowledgeable, capable and fun people to participate with

How did you learn about our group? (I'm trying to improve our visibility, so I'm curious.)
