Ok i am going to kettle moraine in wisconsin at the end of march. This is my first backpacking trip. Can someone please tell me if they know what kind of temps they have at that time of year? Also if it will be cold do i have to pack like i would in the winter? Please help
not sure it could be. I just need to find out what kind of weather they have at that time of year. Because it will be two first timers goin out and i dont want it to be a bad trip. If we dont have the right gear or something like that.

I am going to tell you the same thing I tell almost every beginner here-learn to use Internet search engines such as Yahoo and Google to find this kind of information. It isn't rocket science, but if you don't learn, you are missing out on finding a whole lot of useful information.
Don't expect the members here to have been where you are going or have been there at the same time of year. If someone has, it is just pure luck in many cases unless the place is really well known.
I found the website for the Wisconson DNR in about a minute using "kettle moraine" as the search term on Yahoo.

What the others said, plus, don't worry too much about having a bad trip. If you manage to survive it, you'll probably be hooked, even if you have to shrug off a few minor disasters. For a first-timer everything is so new that if your trip contains so much as the kernal of enjoyment, you'll find it in the midst of a bit of temporary misery. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
