What sparked your interest in backpacking?
For me it was hiking, and then my hiking friends suggested going on an overnight. Even though the pack was heavy, and hurt my shoulders, and I was tired after lugging all that gear, just being out there and self-sufficient (in a way) was so wonderful and rewarding, I was hooked!
