Tell us about your backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking experience.

I hike regularly, and am always looking for a good backpacking trip (typically short trips). I was a very active backpacker while my son was in Scouts, and am pretty versatile when it comes to trips and gear. Don't think I'll ever be an ultralight weighter, but I am looking to lighten my gear a bit. I've backpacked at many different locations throughout Arizona, and survived an 11 day Philmont Scout Trek in the Rockies (north end of New Mexico).

What's been your favorite destination to date?

Mt. Baldy, AZ and Philmont Scout Ranch (near Cimarron, NM)

What's been your toughest trip in the last 2 years? Why?
