My name is Nick. I am moving to DC this coming July. I just finished my MSE in Environmental Engineering and took a job in Columbia, MD.
Maybe 25 trips in 10 years in Michigan, Colorado, North Carolina, Ontario, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Most trips are 1-4 nights, and when hiking alone I hike about 15-20 miles in a day. The coldest temp was 10F in a Upper Michigan January.
This wasn't an overnight, but my wife and I did a 15 mile loop in WV. It rained a little bit all day and fairly hard some of the day. I simply used the Mid-Atlantic Hikers site to find info on the trip.
Go-lite shangrila 3, montbell 30F spiral downhugger (plus silk liner and sleeping in base layer when its cold), and a Golite Jam 50.
Well, I don't really have goals to do those things. I just like to backpack, and I think relative to the norm I like to hike far and light (maybe not UL), so I would like to meet some other "serious" packers.
A random search on meet up, and the other hiking groups seem more interested in 5 mile day trip kind of things, which is cool, but I would also like to find a solid backpackers group.
Hey Nick, Welcome to the group. Sorry I did not get back to you sooner about the 4th of July, but I was out of town; usually I respond to e-mail much more quickly. Just let me know if you have any other meet up ideas in mind.
Welcome aboard, Nick!
Welocme Nick to our little world of arnis/eskrima.
Welcome Nick to our little world of arnis/eskrima.
Welcome to the group, Nick! Are you familiar with the RPG "In Flames"? It's a derivation of the d6 system by the same guy that did Summerlands.
Welcome to the Detroit D&D group! Hope you can make a meet-up sometime.
