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

Have been packing for about 3 years mostly on solo trips and often using public transit to and from the trail. Longest day hike is 18 miles.

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

Meet others into backpacking

What other backpacking-related activities do you participate in? (e.g. car camping, canoeing, cycling, running)

I have hosted several trips in both XC skiing, car camping, backpacking, day hiking. The most complex is the combination of backpacking and trailbuilding. Yes the very trail you walk on ! Photo is of me building the North Country Trail in the UP. I have also been the trail cook.

Introduction

Hiker, backpacker, XC ski, trail builder NCT
