I organize trips that tend to be strenuous and involve hiking for an entire day at a steady pace; often over difficult terrain or in challenging weather. Trips often require hiking 10+ miles. I am also quite knowledgeable about most backpacking gear.

How much backpacking experience do you have?

    James is one of the best backpackers to hike with. He has a inspiring passion for the sport.

    James, the wonder-wit. Haven't hiked with him, but he's good for it.
