Hi, I'm Cy.

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

I've done some multi-day mountaineering trips. Mont Blanc, Mount Washington, Mount Whitney, and Mount Hood are my favorites. The coldest nights were around 0 degrees F.

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!)

Big Agnes 2 person tent, or just a Bivy The lightest sleeping bag I can bring (depending on weather) Roll-up thermarest

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

I just moved to DC, and I'm itching to get outdoors!

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

    Hi Cy! Welcome to the group. Look forward to meeting you on Friday.

    Cool that you worked for the BCGP -- I'm working in Baltimore to start something similar.
