Re: Looking for gear options to start backpacking.
I am a tent camper but have never backpacked and would really like to try it. Are the any opportunities in New England where I can do this? I’d like to find a trip that will provide a tent, pad and backpack to use for my first time. After that, I’d probably get my own equipment (gradually, possibly used.)

Be smart on which trail you do first. Everyone seems to initially anchor on gear. I would also recommend that you carefully consider where & which trail you want to hike first. I would advocate the mantra of "Beginner Backpacker, Beginner Trail".
