What is your current backpacking experience?

I do day hikes, and haven't done the real 40lb backpacking because I have back and neck problems. I have to limit the weight I can carry, so when I go camping, it is car camping.

Do you own a backpack, sleeping bag and tent?

I have all the gear for car camping. I have a daypack sized backpack, a sleeping bag, and a tent. I have worked as a biologist in the field, so I have lots of outdoor gear.

What's your favorite place to camp in Michigan?

In the UP.

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

Hiking, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, horseback riding (if anyone out there is interested in a trail ride), canoeing, camping, visiting various parks, ice-skating, night activities (I am generally nocturnal and can be found roaming around outside with my headlamp).


Hi everyone, I am a tree-hugging, nature and outdoor lover, looking forward to meeting some new friends and having fun. This looks like there are lots of good people in this group. It will be nice to hang out with others with similar interests.

What Michelle is saying about this Meetup Group

Had a nice time and met some both new and old friends. Campfire was, as always, a great end to the evening.
