Briefly describe your backpacking experince.

Just doing it. Every weekend, I mean. Old school, not "ultralight". My gear does not stay new for long, as you can see. Pace is no longer supersonic, but still can go distance. Like to camp cozy, staying late by fire, with lots of hot tea and philosophical talks, given the right company. IMO, fire is the soul of a camp. Fire restrictions will normally keep me out of the area.

What trips would you suggest for the group?

Know many rarely visited corners in West Sierra. Check the "Discussions" section for the trips that may be planned but not posted yet.

Have you read and agree with the group description?

An old time backpacker. Technically, not a baby boomer: there was no such thing in my country of birth. Smoke, sleep late, love campfires. Out in Sierra every weekend. Not looking for mileage or brand landmarks, just enjoy being in Nature.
