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

I've been backpacking for several years. Most days average about 10 - 15 miles at a decent pace. I've done winter camping, and in many ways actually prefer it to summer camping.

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!)

I have a 70l Osprey Aether, big fat frog northface (2/3 person 3 season), 0 degree sleeping bag (snowshoe northface), and all of the cooking/surviving essentials.

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

I usually keep a pretty good pace and pack lightly (I just bring the essentials). My reason for wanting to join is to try my ability with a group that's well established and likes to push themselves a bit beyond the casual pace.

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

Introduction

I love the outdoors and love to meet others that do too.
