What type of backpacking experience do you have?

My most difficult was 5 days in the Grand Canyon. Did 50 miles in 5 days with a 50lb pack. Climbing out South Kaibab Trail in a snow storm was brutal. The books on the Grand Canyon say don't climb out the South Kaibab Trail. I've done it twice and both times in snow. Obviously I don't take instruction well.

What is the best backpacking trip you have been on?

I went down Bright Angel in 2009 in a snow storm and back up South Kaibab trail the next day. I was able to enjoy the hike with my 30 year old daughter. We created an awesome memory.

Where would you most like to go on a backpacking trip?

I've spent most of my outdoor time in Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska and Texas. I'd like to see more of Nevada and Utah. I just moved back to Las Vegas in June and I've been on more than 20 day hikes already.


I've spent most of my life enjoying the outdoors. I'm a life member of the RMEF and have helped raise over $1m to enhance the habitat for all wildlife. I'm hiking down Havasupai in March and trying to book another overnight at Phantom Ranch soon.
