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

To hike, meet other hikers, escape the rat race whenever possible.

What was your most memorable backpacking trip?

I just completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail which was my first true backpacking experience. I miss it a lot. I feel lost now that there are no white blazes in my life telling me what direction to go. :-)

Are you a novice or a seasoned backpacker?

Depends on who you ask. There is always something new to learn.


I just finished a really long hike and I miss being out in nature constantly. Hoping to satisfy my craving for the outdoors with weekend and day trips now.
