From MS, live in LA. We regularly backpack LA, MS and AL (at least 2 weekends per month). Also have several trips planned each year to other states. I do some solo backpacking, but more often my wife is with me. We have a group of friends (mostly from other Southern states) that we plan several trips per year with.

I have 4 children, 2 of which (the younger ones with no choice) sometimes backpack with us.

My style of backpacking is light (not ultra-lite) but comfortable. When solo, I shoot for big miles each day, much lower when with others.
