Newbie here in Chicago suburbs

Hey there, I am so excited to be here!  My name is Robin and I am just starting to train for my first overnight backpacking trip.  I want to mostly absorb trip tips, like packing, water/food amounts, “what if’s,” etc.  I am exploring the conversations part of the app, so don’t be too hard on me if I post something that belongs elsewhere.  🙂  I appreciate your experience and advice, and hopefully friendships to come!

Hey Robin! I'm a newbie as well. I would love to have the knowledge and confidence to begin overnight trips. How are you training?
