Help us to understand the experience level of our members. This will enhance the safety and planning of events. Are you new to backpacking or do you consider yourself an experience backpacker? About how long have you been backpacking?

I am somewhat new to backpacking, having rediscovered it this past year after a 10 year hiatus. I try to get out once a month or so.

Do you currently have all the equipment you need for a backpacking trip? i.e. backpack, boots, sleeping bag, stove, tent, cooking stuff, clothing, etc. etc., etc.?

I have more than enough gear! 😜 and I'm a hammocker

When was the last time you went backpacking? Where did you go? How many nights were you on the trail?

My last trip was to Lake Moomaw for a three day weekend (two nights).

What is the longest backpacking trip you have been on (number of days/nights)? Where?

I currently have only done three days/two night trips. However I'm hoping to get out more this next year.

Do you know how to read a topographic map? Do you own and know how to use a compass? Do you own and know how to use a GPS?

I am learning navigational skills as we speak. My husband owns a compass and gps. Maybe I should get one too!
