We are explorers by nature that don’t mind being dirty for a couple of days. We like our dehydrated food in the evening and our oatmeal and coffee in the morning, especially if it comes with a view. We travel light and don’t mind s*itting in the woods. Many miles and many days are always good and we do it without complaining. We carry maps not only to know where we are going but also to find new adventures. But most importantly, we like to do it with friends that are experienced backpackers as well. So there are no beginners and no leaders in this group, just a bunch of backpackers.
