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?

From one of your esteemed members.

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.?

Hmmm, varies with the season. DSLR and my Bear Grylls Survival knife!

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

Would love to climb Mt. Vinson and Puncak Jays for the adventure as much as the climbs.

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

oops!

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
