Why did you become a member of the Indianapolis Backpackers group?

To share a favorite activity with new friends.

What was your most memorable backpacking trip?

Long term trip was Italy, India, SE Asia, Bali, Australia, & New Zealand for a year. During that year, I did a 3 1/2 day pack in/ pack out volcano climb in New Zealand which was amazing.

Are you a novice or a seasoned backpacker?

In between... I've backpacked a lot and I've camped a lot, but... when I took my long trips I would camp part of the time or stay in hostels. I've got quite a bit of survival knowledge, but I have a lot of room to grow here. I'd love to go to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior, but would only go with folks more experienced than I am. I have no experience with dangerous wildlife.


Hey there. I'm looking to make friends who enjoy nature & backpacking. I've backpacked all over the world and am now the proud owner of 3 dogs, a cat, and a house so I'm looking for backpacking ops closer to home.
