Introduction

I need to get out of the city often. I like backpacking and day hikes, ideally with scrambles and swimming to mix it up. Looking forward to winter hiking this year and my first winter backpacking.

What Hampton is saying about this Meetup Group

Great trip and group. Kennedy was very thorough with emails prior the trip with gear checklists and tips and an excellent guide and teacher in the field. It was fun and informative and neither the rain nor the cold really got in the way thanks to the magic tarp and a good fire. Can't wait to do it again.
