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?

My family (husband and two children, ages 11 & 12) are new to backpacking. We hiked for two days on the AT from Bears Den to Blackburn. We are planning a five day hike through the Shenandoah National Park at the end of June.

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.?

We have all the equipment that we need to backpack and camp.
