I like to hike on the local trails, but my real desire would be to go backpacking. I enjoy doing trail maintenance work so as to "pay back" for my enjoyment on the trails.
I would really like to go backpacking. I also do trail maintenance once a month (approx) with the Ojai rangers in their district of the Los Padres National Forest.
I'm a 60 y/o man living in Santa Paula. I'm a teacher working in Oxnard. When I'm outdoors, I enjoy backpacking and also working on trails in the local Los Padres Nat'l Forest and other local wild lands.
A fine hike that fit into my Saturday schedule. I appreciated leaving the well-worn trail in favor of the narrower track that approached the lunch spot. What a fine view from that promontory. Nice walking with everyone, but thanks especially to Jeff for the excellent leadership and to Jim for the salt tablet.
