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?

Fairly experienced; I've been backpacking a long time. Other pastimes have come and gone, but I continue to enjoy BP.

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.?


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

Last week to Shenandoah mts.

50 mile multiday hikes in Colorado, Calif, and Wash state.

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?



Hi, my name is Bruce. I live in Yorktown, VA and have been backpacking for quite a while. I enjoy finding new areas to hike, but also have some "old favorites" that I've been haunting for years. I've done some West Coast as well as East Coast hikes.
