How much backpacking experience do you have? (e.g. "None," "I went on one trip years ago," "I've thru-hiked the AT.")

I did a 5 day and then a 3 day backpacking circuit in Glacier in Montana a few years ago with one friend, which is my only true backpacking experience. Otherwise, my trips have been supported. I hiked into the Grand Canyon to camp for a weekend, but sent the heavy gear on a pack horse train, so I just had a day pack. Also took a 4 day provisioned/led trip on the Inca Trail where all we carried were day packs and the porters carried the rest. All other trips have been base/car camping with day hikes.

What do you hope to get out of this group? (e.g. one trip a year, backpacking buddies, get closer to nature)
