So I happened to stumble across this site a few days ago and have been reading like crazy but was looking for some advice on a trip I am planning.
I have been doing quite a lot of research on gear based on reviews and other forum posts obviously I may not have everything covered yet but I have just started the planning process.
I was looking at doing a 5-6 day trip and had the Grand Tetons or Oregon but am up for other suggestions. Planning on doing the trip in the summer months with a few other people (we are all around the 23-24 age and in pretty good physical shape). When I say decent physical shape we usually lift a few days a week and do some cardio as well. Looking for any suggestions on trails or locations or hints or tips regarding places to go for a somewhat newbie while still allowing for solitude etc.
Plan to do some long weekend trips in the spring prior to the longer trip to get back into things, I last backpacked in a somewhat large group 5-7 years ago, with a friends assortment of gear.
Mostly looking for some guidance and suggestions on Trails or locations and hints or tips to take away and build upon going forward. And as far as gear goes looking for suggestions on backpack sizes in like 50L or 65L? Any gear or location information helps!
Thanks a lot for the help and glad to be apart of this community
