Why did you become a member of the Indianapolis Backpackers group?

To experience backpacking, meet new friends, and enjoy nature.

What was your most memorable backpacking trip?

Doing 6 days on the John Muir trail in the high Sierras.

Are you a novice or a seasoned backpacker?

I still consider myself a novice since I've only been on 5 trips, one of which was in the Bitter Root Mt. in Montana and the John Muir trail. My 2 longest trips so far.


I just recently remarried after being widowed for 13 years and recently retired.. I'm 63 yrs. old, love to hike, camp, read, garden, and I am trying to pack as much as I can into the years I have left. I'm pretty easy going and love being in nature.

What Marieanne B. is saying about this Meetup Group

The Indy Backpackers were very friendly and helpful to me with this being my first backpacking experience.
