The goal is simple. Connect with and meet quality people who enjoy backpacking, hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, exploring, and all the many great outdoor activities that Michigan (and other parts of the country) have to offer. My primary interest is in backpacking, typically 1-3 night adventures. However, I will let the members of the site determining the majority of the activities.

A few of the areas in Michigan that I have backpaced and camped in the past are the Manistee River Trail, South Manitou Island, Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area, and Taquanama Falls.
