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?

Good 'ol Google.

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 jump bag. I'm a Wilderness EMT so that goes everywhere with me.

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

Hike every US National Park, through hike the AT and NC MST and to head back to Panama to hike more there.

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

Yes, thoroughly.

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'm Zach, an EMT and student from down in tiny Camden, NC. I've been wanting to upgrade from dayhiking and kayaking to backpacking for awhile, and now that I'm settled down for a bit, I'm hoping this will be the opportunity I've been looking for.
