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?

Recommend by my association with ROSC.

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.?

Carabiners

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

I have always wanted to thru-hike the AT, and still hope to get (and stay) in good enough hiking shape to do so as my career eventually levels out and my kids get older.

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

Introduction

Just moved to the Roanoke area from Virginia Beach. I am looking to increase my hiking, backpacking, and overall wilderness experience, and to link up with similar-minded folks.
