Tell us about your backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking experience.

I enjoy hiking, rock and ice climbing, and now getting into backpacking. Did a 3 night stay at Havasu Falls with AMC and a 2 day solo trip to Granite and Hermit rapids in the canyon in May of this year. Also did the Mt. Everest Base Camp trek in 2009 with Intrepid.

What's been your favorite destination to date?

Everest trek, then my solo to the rapids in May

What's been your toughest trip in the last 2 years? Why?

Where would you like to go backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking that you haven't gone?

No answer yet


I enjoy the outdoors and finally have the time to do much more now that I'm retired...always looking for adventure on the edge. New to meetup and it appears events fill up fast, so I'll just hang out on the waitlist and hope to get lucky.

What Al P. is saying about this Meetup Group

Enjoyed hiking places I haven't been to and all the hiking tips received from all the guys on the trip, looking forward to the next trip with them
