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?

It appeared in a email from Meet Up. com. I was intrigued by starting up again with the class for beginners. I love classes... and I certainly need to start backpacing from the beginning again.

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.?

My favorite coffee mug - a plastic mug with the "I love the U.P. logo". Also love my little Bluet stove.

When was the last time you went backpacking? Where did you go? How many nights were you on the trail?

For now, it's just to get out there!

What is the longest backpacking trip you have been on (number of days/nights)? Where?

yes

Do you know how to read a topographic map? Do you own and know how to use a compass? Do you own and know how to use a GPS?

No answer yet

Introduction

I was introduced to backpacking while living in Washington State. Since having children, my camping has been limited to car camping and cabins in state parks. The cabins are great, but I feel it is time to get back into real camping.
