I have been backpacking since I was a teen and my longest mileage in a day that I can remember is probably around 28 miles. I've also done countless 15+ mile days. Low temp I experienced while backpack was -20ish deg while I was backpacking in the High Peaks in the Adirondacks.
As I am writing this, I just completed a 164 mile section of John Muir Trail in CA. It went from July 26 - Aug 9 2013. Almost 6 months of planning went into this trip as I wanted to be fully prepared for the longest and hardest backpacking trip I would ever undertake. With unusual rain storms, forest fires, and drought like conditions, everything went amazing! I guess all the experience I got this past year by doing all these weekend backpacking trips with these meetup groups paid off!
I have a Six Moons Designs Skyscape X, Neo Air Xlite, a Enlightened Equipment Revelation 20 deg quilt, and a Zpacks Arc Blast.
Want to meet others that share my interest and love of backpacking. I also want to learn how to backpack more efficiently and discover new techniques.

Love backpacking and meeting new folks while doing it is a bonus!
