The usual - backpack, sleeping bag/pad, tent, minimal BP'ing cooking stuff. Don't have a jet boil but am fully equipped with car camping stuff, including camp stove, all necessary kitchen gear, palatial princess foam mattress. Canyoneering equipment: harness, helmet, carabiners, rapides, ascending and descending devices, 120 ft rope, 75ft of webbing

What type of backpacking equipment are you willing to share?

Any of the above

Where have you been backpacking?

Havasupai most recently. Have done lots of car camping.

Where would you like to go backpacking?

Anywhere would be great. Would love to explore Escalante, Capital Reef, Bryce Canyon and more of Zion and the Uintas. Really love canyoneering and would like to do that as much as possible.

What type of special skills do you have (e.g. CPR certified, scuba certified, can build a snow cave, etc.)

Have taken 3 canyoneering courses so feel competent to co-lead, rock climber, scuba certified (PADI, NAUI, YMCA - l got certified many moons ago but only get the opportunity to go every few years, so I'm still a novice), D- licenced skydiver - jumped for 8 years but am semi-retired - I make a good omelette


Moved to SLC from the East Coast and want to meet like-minded folks and get to know Utah and the beautiful outdoors surrounding me here. Interested in hiking, camping, canyoneering, mountain biking, river running, etc.
