Help us to understand the experience level of our members. This will enhance the safety and planning of events. Are you new to backpacking or do you consider yourself an experience backpacker? About how long have you been backpacking?
Google and East Coast Hikers.
Do you currently have all the equipment you need for a backpacking trip? i.e. backpack, boots, sleeping bag, stove, tent, cooking stuff, clothing, etc. etc., etc.?
I don't have a favorite yet, but I think it would be the SteriPen or any other method of water purification.
When was the last time you went backpacking? Where did you go? How many nights were you on the trail?
first off an AT section then someday when I don't need to work the whole AT. Then I guess I would move on to other places out west or other countries.
What is the longest backpacking trip you have been on (number of days/nights)? Where?
yes, but no storm chasing.
Got a few hikes under my belt. I'll likely be joining more hikes soon. I spend most of my winter time snowboarding, but come spring I like to hike when I can make time.
