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?

I'm in East Coast Hikers and saw a link

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.?

Sasquatch repellent

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

My ultimate goal is to have no ultimate goal. Rather, just enjoy the moment, fresh air, nature and being outdoors.

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

Hi all. I've been interested in connecting with others that have been hiking and backpacking for a while. I'm a complete beginner, but this looks like a great place to get educated and get started.
