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

Did the 165 mile Tahoe Rim Trail. Coldest night out was probably in the high 30s. I opted to hike through the night rather than chill out in a tent.

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!)

ULA CDT backpack, Big Agnes Fly Creek UL-2 tent, Marmot Helium +15 Bag

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

I would like to tap into the knowledge base and get my weight down to a minimum. There is a lot of gear out there that says it is light, but it is difficult to separate the good from the inferior products.

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

Searching meetup for camping groups in the WDC area.


New here, fairly athletic I enjoy fast hiking and going minimal. Looking for other that might share my interests and possibly make a few new friends.

What Reid is saying about this Meetup Group

Great place to meet like minded people who prefer to travel light. We saw some great scenery over 2 days and found an awesome place for brunch Sunday morning.
