Briefly describe your backpacking experince.

Wow, when I reflect...40 years of backpacking! Through-soloed the AT in ’77, the JMT in '09, section hiking the PCT since '76, up and down the Sierra crest, Cascades, coastal California, Alaska, and much of the north East. Spring, summer, fall, winter, an all seasons backpacker. An old-schooler at heart that is embracing the new technologies and ethos of wilderness travel.

What trips would you suggest for the group?

This state offers so much variety in all seasons...spring for the foothill wildflower explosion, summer-fall for the high Sierra crest, and winter exploring the coastal ranges.


Vagabond, zuhgunruhe, professionally trained, experienced through living. Love the natural order that nature provides.
