Been backpacking for awhile now, though haven't done a lot over the last couple of years. Longest mileage day was 30 miles on the STS. Coldest was probably -15 or so with wind chill in Michigan's Upper Peninsula last winter.
Hmmmm. Don't really remember, it's been that long, not counting the GGGs in California (and, really, they don't count). Might have been the Michigan UP trip with a good friend. Great weather the first day, very windy and snowed all day on us the second, pretty nice the third. It went great!
Elemental Horizons Kalais pack, EE Enigma quilt(s), and either a Warbonnet Blackbird hammock when there's trees, and getting ready to pull the trigger on a Tarptent Protrail for ground dwelling.
Been in the group for a long time, I believe Evan invited me but don't completely remember. I'm old, I don't remember a lot of things.
Another venue for backpacking trips.
