Give a small bio of your outdoor experiences

Some backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, day hiking, one bicycle tour, and more recently learning about wild edible and medicinal plants.

What is the maximum altitude you can handle?

Does 30,000 feet in a pressurized airline cabin count?

Are you familiar with the 10 essentials and how they change with different events?

The ten essentials is now a "systems based" list of the types of things that one should take with them on any sort of outdoor adventure. Navigation aids(maps, compass,etc.), Shelter (Tarp, Bivy, etc.), and Extra food/clothing are all examples of the Ten Essentials system. Although there will be multiple items that are always on the list ( a way to make fire for instance) the type and quantity of items will vary depending on the situation.

What outdoor events do you prefer?

Most of them :-)

Is your activity pace slow, medium or fast?

Usually between medium and fast....unless I'm looking at plants!


Howdy, I recently moved to Bend from Portland to attend school at COCC/OSU. I always enjoy meeting other people who appreciate being out in nature and look forward to sharing some hikes!
