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

Mostly extended weekend trips, five days maximum. Longest mileage in a day (backpacking) would be about 13 to 14 miles. As for coldest night out... I'd say just below freezing.

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!)

I have an REI Quarter Dome tent (2 person). I use the REI Halo (10 degree) bag in colder months, and a lightweight Kelty for warmer months. Pad -- Them-a-rest ProLite. And pack -- Osprey Aura 50.

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

I'd like to become a more efficient backpacker. I enjoy it, and I want to do more of it.

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

Introduction

Give me an excuse, and I'll get outdoors.
