Why do you think you should be a member of the bunch?

I've been a pretty avid camper and I'm looking to gain some experience and advice from pro backpackers. I'm only a season in to backpacking and I love it.

Woud you be willing to organize backpacking outings?

I would absolutely plan or help organize. My husband is already a member and he's organizing a trip we are participating in in January.

What's the best memorable backpacking trip you have done

Hubby and I camped out at cairn basin heading to elk cove on the west side of the timberline trail. It was early enough in the season that we had a great wildflower show but no one was on the mountain because there were also some snowfields left. We were treated to the most amazing sunset I think we both have ever seen in the shadow of mount hood and looking out to adams, Helens and rainier... And that's saying something considering we've watched the sun rise on top of Hawaii's mt. Haleakala .


I've always loved exploring, and even more so if I can get off the beaten path.
