Resuming our backcountry adventures was one of our goals for last year, but failed to come to fruition. [I took an overnighter with one of my girlfriends last year, but Matt and I didn't make it to the backcountry together.] As such backpacking made a repeat appearance on our list of outdoor resolutions for 2017, too.
