Describe your backpacking experience and background, please include longest mileage in a day (with pack) and coldest nights out.

I started backpacking in 2009 and joined DCUL in 2010 (wasn't called DCUL back then). My longest mileage day is 37 miles on Quehanna Trail and coldest night was around zero degrees (somewhere in PA with Max Nemeth on the MidState Trail).

Describe your most recent outdoor adventure. When was it? How did you set it up? Did the weather cooperate? How did it go?

The Big Three: what specific gear (not just brands) do you use for your three-season shelter system, sleep system, and backpack? (It's okay if it isn't ultralight!)

Shelter: I use the MLD Duomid; Backpack(s): I have three ULAs that I use depending on the season, length of trip, etc. Sleep System: depends on the temperature. For warm nights I use the MLD Spirit Quilt (48 degrees), cold nights I use the Nunatak Alpinist.

Help us understand your reason for joining DC UL Backpacking, including your goals for lightening your load and quickening your backpacking pace.

Sometimes awesome experienced are best shared.

How did you learn about our group? (I'm trying to improve our visibility, so I'm curious.)

By chance through another Backpacking Group.
