I would say that I am experienced and a survivalist. But no expert!
My wife and I backpacked 19 miles with an overnight camping trip.
My funniest trip would have to be the trip I took up Mt. Olympus in Utah. I did the trip myself to the summit. On the way back down the mountain I came across a switchback and stumbled upon a “large” snake and I jumped about 5 feet back. I wasn’t paying attention or ready for it. Turned out to be a stick….
Same as above!
Longest: Mileage 35, Days 5, Elevation over 14,000
I've been backpacking for 8 years. Luckily I have a job that pays for me to travel, so I’m able to hike and go mountaineering all around the country. The more I climb and hike the more I want to challenge myself and push myself to new extremes.
