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 have been backpacking a few years, and have gone on several weekend trips. I tend to stick to beginner to intermediate trips. I am not fast and cannot hike long distances yet.

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.?

Yes, I have everything: boots, bag, backpack, poles, tent, stove, cookware, clothing, 1st aid kit, emergency kit.

Weekend trips (2 nights / 3 days) in the SNP and around VA.

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 can read a topo map. I do not have a compass yet or GPS device (except on my iPhone)
