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?

The meetup website suggested it to me.

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.?

My multy-tool.

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

I don't really have and ultimate goal. I simply enjoy spending time outdoors and being away from everything.

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

Yes, it was very informative.

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?

Not at my current skill level.

Introduction

Hello, my names Ricky and I'm interested in hiking and backpacking. I'd also like to learn more about wilderness survival.
