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?

My husband recently joined

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.?

To much stuff :) ....jet boil

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

We would like to work our way up to longer and longer hikes and one day leap frog the AT

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 love campfires ...hate being cold. Backpacking with my husband Buff makes me happy.

What Paula G. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great seeing everyone, it will be a long 3 1/2 months until we can hit the trail again.
