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!)

Backpack: CDT ULA frameless pack Sleeping: NeoAir with various down sleepings bags Shelter: Big Agnes Superlight Seedhouse 2 or bivy sack and tarp

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

My primary reason for joining is to challenge myself with longer milage trips (and hike with people who do not unncessarly burden themselves with lots of stuff).

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

Introduction

I'm interested in hiking with and learning from like-minded backpackers. I enjoy higher milage and more challenging trips than most backpackers, so this group sounds right for me. I live in Chesapeake, VA.
