I've done multiple long distance trails, and have had multiple 20+ mile days, the longest being 30. Don't think I've pulled any nights below 0 yet, but I've done the single digits and teens. They're way better than the days in the 80's!

Been backpacking for a long time. DC UL is a great way to get myself out backpacking on new trail with great people.

The outdoors is like my second home. I love getting out for the weekend on a backpacking trip.
Lots of great backpacking trips with a good group of people, from beginning backpackers to people with 1000&#039;s of miles under their belts. The focus is on a bit more physically challenging and rewarding trips - trips that are still well within reach of most people if they remove their mental roadblock regarding what they can actually accomplish. Evenings at camp are always a good time too. I can say that I&#039;ve pretty much been laughing at some point on any trip I&#039;ve been on. Lot&#039;s of experienced people that are willing to share their knowledge - I&#039;m always learning something new.
