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

Longest was 26 miles on the CKT if I remember correctly, coldest night 5F in Dolly Sods.

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

Wonderland Trail, 93 miles and 25,000 feet gain in 4 days and 4h in August 2013. Initial weight of the backpack must have been just under 25lb with 3 days worth of food. Perfect weather. It was awesome.

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!)

MLD Duomid, Revelation X Quilt plus Thermarest AllSeasons and just in: ULA CTD

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

Not trying to be too light - I still have some luxury items like camera and binoculars. But I enjoy the lighter load that enables me to go faster and further with hopefully less strain on my joints compared to traditional backpacking.

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