Any BPLs in Hampton Roads (Norfolk VA area)? on 09/23/2010 08:48:47 MDT Print View

I have transitioned recently to lightweight backpacking. I went from averaging 40 lbs total pack weight(including food and water) to 15-20 lbs total for a 3 season weekend trip. As as result I travel faster and I find I do not fit in with traditional backpackers.

The last two hikes I did with a local group were not ideal. The group size was large (9 and 13 people respectively) and the hikes were extremely easy and slow.

I'd like to do longer and more challenging hikes with like minded backpackers. Are there any BPLs in in the Hampton Roads (Norfolk VA)area?

Oh, man, I just moved from there a year ago! I was in Ghent, Norfolk, a few blocks from The Naro, and Fairgrounds coffee. I was just talking to a friend of mine from there today, I miss it!

I wasn't able to do much backpacking while I was there though, so I don't know anyone who is into it there...
