The PNW is such a diverse area and is an amazing place to experience during the winter. I own snowshoes, waterproof boots, crampons, ice-axe, etc...
I've hiked to the summit of Mt St Helens and Mt Adams. I've done several 50+ mile backpacking trips along the PCT. I have camped on Mt Rainier in a snow cave, although a tent is much easier.
I haven't done any international adventure travel, although I have spent 6 months in Afghanistan and that was an adventure.
I don't know anyone in Peaks. I'm here at Peaks because it looks like a lot of fun.
Hi my name is Tom and the AF moved me here from Florida. Yeah, big change! I've been in the PNW for the past 4 years and while I've always enjoyed backpacking, the mountains here are spectacular.
Haven't gone on any activities yet, lots of stuff going on at the moment. Hope to soon
