Hometown: Alexandria, va

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.
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.
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.
Goal is just to have fun. Loads light enough, and pace is good.
I searched for backpacking in meetup.
