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

Longest trip was probably 11 days out in Los Padres Forest. Longest mileage, maybe 18 miles coming out of the mountains with maybe 40 or so pounds. Coldest nights froze my water bottle solid, guessing low 20's or so.

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

Went 75 miles down a river in three days in Oregon about 4 years ago. I was invited, so no real setup on my end. Weather cooperated mostly except for the wind. Went great.

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!)

Pack is a north face, forgot the actual model, but it's huge. Have a cat's meow sleeping bag and a four season two person north face tent.

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

Goal is just to have fun. Loads light enough, and pace is good.

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

I searched for backpacking in meetup.
