Hi from Michigan.

Just a quick hello to introduce myself. Just recently joined the Conversations on here. Been an REI member for years though. I'm an avid hiker and backpacker. I also love white water rafting and pretty much anything outdoors. I lived in WNC for a couple years and hiking in the Smokies and Pisgah NF are my favorite places to be!

Welcome from another Michigander, there’s also a Michigan community post here. Where snouts in Michigan are you? I’m from Southeast Michigan area.

Didn't realize there was a MI board. I'll have to check it out. I'm also SE MI!

Welcome aboard 🙂  I'm in eastern NC but raised in the WNC and love the Smokies.  My favorite place on the east coast is Mt. Mitchell NC (Highest point east of the Mississippi 🙂

Hi @spotter - Welcome to the community! 

You have found yourself in a great place to discuss all things hiking and backpacking. We hope you take a chance to look through the different boards and share some of your stories, expertise, and questions!  As @Graf mentioned, the State of Michigan board might also be a fun place to post. 

We look forward to joining in on conversations with you and learning from your experiences. Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. We're happy to have you here!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Welcome!

I'll be in the Mitten state, backpacking the Manistee River Loop trail in a couple weeks

My partner and I will be moving to Ann Arbor in December 😍 I’m looking forward to kayaking the Huron River as much as I can. Looking forward to joining the MI conversation ❤️
