To find a group of people with similar interest in the outdoors. Though I've done trips with family and friends and solo, backpacking with new faces around is always fun.
I've been on many backpacking trips but my most memorable would have to be my first multi-day trip in southern virginia along the AT. Mostly because I learned the most about backpacking and what not to take.
I consider myself a seasoned backpacker. Though recently I've only been able to make 2-3 trips a year.
I love the outdoors and getting away from the highly connected norm of everyday life. I'm married with five kids and as a family we enjoy camping, boating, and many other activities.
Great group, i look forward to many future trips with them. I'm only upset that I didn't discover this group in time to join the Grand Canyon Trip.
