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?

Chris.

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 Thermarest pillow. I know, I know...it's a luxury. But I CAN'T sleep without it. :)

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

Shorter term, I'd like to hike Shenandoah National Park this summer. After that, like most backpackers, I would love to hike the AT. I'll at least start chipping off section hikes very soon.

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

Yep.

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?
