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?

Several HROA and TATC members are part of this group.

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.?

Spirit of adventure, never leave home without it!

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

No real goals, just hope I can keep hiking till I'm a dried up old husk. Would like to hike the AT again but I also have several long distance off road bike rides planned.

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

Yes

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?

No answer yet
