Over 4000 miles in 29 states. Max trek: 132 mi. Over 700 nights under ripstop/no-see-um. Base gear = 14 LBs. Big miles OK, but prefer to savor the surroundings. Experienced all environments save Polar and Lunar. Expert in woods/mountains/desert. Passion: McGyvering.
Am eager to share both past + future experiences. Continuous dabbling in U.S. National Parks leaves 9 untapped. Recent expansion into canoe + bicycle camping drives me to crave more. Ready for international ! Camino ? Costa ? Machu ? Let's GO !
Have soloed and in a 2-person team for decades. Most groups tend to be unwieldy. The Chicago Backpackers Group is quite the anomoly. High intellect, mutual respect and even-keeled tolerance for whatever the outdoors brings all make this group a true delight. Zero drama ! Best campfire conversations ever, too.
