I started hiking during high school while on vacations in the pacific northwest. I hiked less during college, but started up again about 10 years ago. I hike regularly in the whites and irregularly in Europe and the west coast of the US.
I love backpacking. I've done a few week long backpacks, but rarely have time for more than 2-3 days weekend trips these days.
I am working on some lists, but mostly I just like getting out and away from civilization.
Oh, there were a few difficult ones. One was long and boring and my feet hurt. One started at 11pm and ended at noon the following day. One involved a week of rain and lots of slush. They make good stories though, so we can talk about them in person on the trail. : )
Yep, I took the AMC leadership training course with Michael B : )
I'm a 4 season hiker and backpacker.
