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

I've been camping and backpacking since I was a kid. Longest milage probably 20 miles with a pack. Coldest night probably about 15 degrees (remember the arctic blast in FL? yep, so do I!)

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'm not a gear head - my gear isn't all super light, but it does its job. A three season tent with rainfly, synthetic 20 degree bag, thermarest.

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

I don't have any crunchy friends up here, and I'm not really looking for just a 4 mile day hike. It would be nice to get some fresh air and exercise.

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