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

22 miles in the smokies and coldest night ... 20 degrees Fahrenheit

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

Hiking in the hold cross wilderness, weather was great, it was part of an annual 3-4 day hike with standup paddleboarding down Rapids in the beginning.

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!)

My weight is usually 28 lbs with 3 liters of water and 3 days food and luxuries; marmot 15 degree; tarptent single person; and nimbus latitude

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

I've gotten back into hiking with a group that hikes every 3rd weekend ... Would like to hike more and do more miles on the trips ... I sleep better after a long day

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