Describe your backpacking experience and background, please include longest mileage in a day (with pack) and coldest nights out.
500 AT miles - bagged many 20+ mile days during my hike, coldest night 22 degrees. Mwenzi peak, across The Saddle and finally the Kili peak of Kilimanjaro.
Describe your most recent outdoor adventure. When was it? How did you set it up? Did the weather cooperate? How did it go?
It's been a while and I'm currently pregnant, so only 10 milers low impact for me at the moment.
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!)
