Hiking (working on the 48's), backpacking, shelters & tentsites, 2 day hikes. In 3 season, I hike with my border collie Yoda - he has his own pack & carries his own gear.
I've done about half of the 48s and about 24 in the winter. Prefer 2 days (one day up, stay over, next day down). It's not about speed, it's about the adventure
6 peaks in 2 days - camping on Mt Pierce at 0* with 70mph winds. Awesome!
More winter backpacking/camping. Learning how to use the MSR. Another pair of boots? I only have 8 so far...
Coming down Falling Waters Trail in the rain - I fell 3 times and got stuck between 2 rocks. Longest day of my life...
I like backpacking, hiking, camping out in all 4 seasons. Nothing better than a 4,000'er in January in a tent!
