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

I have been backpacking for just over a year. Longest mileage in a ~18miles; coldest night was in the 20sF.

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

Most recent was a 32 miles to Mcafee Knob, past weekend. Hiked along the AT. Good weather. Great trip.

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!)

Shelter - two man backpacking tent that I am usually sharing with someone. Sleep - thermarest pad; synthetic sleepbag from REI; both are not UL backpack - deuter 60L bag - not UL

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

I really enjoy the woods and am looking to explore more back country areas which necessitates having a more comfortable pack. I am hoping to do this over the course of the next year with new gear purchases.

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