Introduction

Hi, I live in Windsor, Ontario. Love the outdoors. I started backpacking in 2009, after years of car camping with my wife and dogs across North America. Looking for people to hike with in MI and ONT this summer; also interested in extended trips.

What is your current backpacking experience?

Five years - 18 hikes. Best hikesK 1. Berg Lake Trail (Mount Robson, BC 2010) 3-nights; 2. Four-pass Loop and Conundrum Hot Springs (Colorado 2012) 4+1 nights; 3. Algonquin Highlands 3-nights 4. Agawa Falls (Lake Superior Park) 1-night ... Provoking Lake(Algonquin), Tahquamenan Fall (UP), MRT & NCT (MI).

Do you own a backpack, sleeping bag and tent?

Yes to all. I've been purchasing and upgrading gear (there is always something new to buy and weight to reduce). Have some extra gear to lend.

What's your favorite place to camp in Michigan?

Have hike the Manistee River Trail and North Country Trail in Michagan a couple of times. I've heard great things about the Porcupine area and Pictured Rocks ...

What types of outdoor activities are you especially looking to do?

Backpacking trips mostly. In the U.P. or Northern Ontario. Interested in one extended trip per year, especially like hiking in the Rockies. I love to hear tales of adventures people have had, usually told around campfire at the end of a long day.

    Hi Peter! Welcome to the group. Nice to see another backpacker joining... I think with the number of backpackers in the group now, we might be able to have few successful trips this year... I have some plans, but I always welcome any suggestions...
