I think I should be a member because I am a strong hiker and backpacker. Maybe not the fastest in the bunch, but I'm happy to gather wood for a fire, quick to pull my gear together when it's time to move on, and generally I try not to be annoying.
I never have before, but sure.
Did an overnight at Jefferson Park in early October last year. The colors were amazing, and hardly any other folks were up there. Perfect time of year and the beauty was unsurpassed.
Summer of 2010 was my introduction to backpacking - and I loved it! From the Olympics to Three Sisters area, to be able to enjoy the beauty of Oregon and Washington with a pack on your back is an amazing experience.
