  • OC Backpackers

     What a great group! I was nervous about attending and was thinking I might be intimidated by the group once there. Well, it was quite the contrary: Everybody was so friendly and helpful it gave me the courage I need, and I feel like with this group, you guys may actually forgive me for my ignorance on the first few trips, lol. I look forward to hitting the trails (and learning much more).

     Obsessive Compulsive Backpackers....YOU. COMPLETE. ME. I have been on many trips with this group and they have all been fantastic, worthwhile trips. I always learn something about new gear, new techniques in backpacking and new ways of lying (fibbing) around a campfire. I return to civilized life happy, and thinking about the next trip! Thanks ya'll! 

    Meg on Dec 12, 2012.

  • OC Backpackers

     This was a great hike to renew some friendships and make some new ones. The actual hiking was easy, perfect for the beginners and the short daylight hours. Anna's pre-trip scouting helped find tent sites for our late Friday arrival and night camp setup. Very surprising how many others were on the trails, but probably due to easy access from Charlottesville and the nice weekend weather. As for the Sherpa games...... Well...... Ya gotta do something around the fire!

     I had a wonderful time and would like to hang with you all again!

  • OC Backpackers

     A good group to allow backpackers to join together to enjoy hiking and other outfoor activities. 

    RICH P. on Aug 6, 2012.

  • OC Backpackers

     This was my first activity with OCB. I had the honor of joining the activity organizer, Phil Reed, and 6 other OCBers (Paul, Rich, Jimmy, Mark, Joe and Meghan) all of whom have proven themselves to be not only skilled outdoors people, but just downright good hiking companions as well. I had a great experience throughout the entire pre-trip through post-trip process, despite not knowing anyone prior to signing up. If what I experienced on this trip was any indication of the level of professionalism, skill and character of the people involved in OCB, then I am certainly proud to be a part of it.
