I'm Zach, an EMT and student from down in tiny Camden, NC. I've been wanting to upgrade from dayhiking and kayaking to backpacking for awhile, and now that I'm settled down for a bit, I'm hoping this will be the opportunity I've been looking for.
I truly enjoy almost any outdoor activity. Rock clombing, hiking, backpacking, paddling. Love my family even though they don't always share this enthusiasm. Dog lover also. Choc lab,9 and choc lab/boxer 8mo pup.
I was introduced to backpacking while living in Washington State. Since having children, my camping has been limited to car camping and cabins in state parks. The cabins are great, but I feel it is time to get back into real camping.
Long time member of the Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club, member of Hampton Roads Outdoor Adventures for the past 3 years. I've led backpacking trips and multi day Mt. Bike rides for both groups since joining. Thru-hiker 2000 mile Appalachian Trail.
I live in Williamsburg and I am interested in backpacking. I just got back from 2.5 months of trekking in Nepal and I want more experience here in Virginia. Hiked out west and southwest as well. I'm a field geologist so I do lots work outdoors.
philreedshikes.com Howdy all, I enjoy backpacking, planning trips, taking photos, telling stories, and laughing around the campfire! I've been hiking for a while and have always been a slow walker, not much has changed.
