My backpacking experience includes Kings Canyon National Park, the Presidential Range in the White Mountains and army training. I'm taking SOLAR's fall backpacking, winter camping and mountaineering classes. I've done four day backpacking trips.
I have a backpack, sleeping bag and tent. I, also have access to the equipment locker at SOLAR (stove, treking poles, bear cannister). I love maps.
I have only camped in Brighton State Rec Area. I would like to try Sleeping Bear Dunes and Picture Rocks.
Biking, orienteering, rock climbing, skiing, hang gliding, kayaking, ultimate frisbee, soccer and something new I've never heard of..what's pickleball? Having the right person/people with which to share the activity makes or breaks the experience.
I'm living in Detroit, acquiring property for Habitat and myself, providing foster care to dogs and preparing for backpacking in SEKI and camping in the Amazon.
MAC is a powerful group of welcoming, active people.
