What is your current backpacking experience?

I have hiked the Grand Canyon three times: Bright Angel, Havasupai, and Kaibab trails. Started with: I wanted to go to the Grand Canyon in 2007 but the group fell apart, so I went anyway ... and just kept going back. It's so beautiful!

Do you own a backpack, sleeping bag and tent?

Yes. Yes. Yes. But evidently I was skimping on these too and need better equipment. How was I supposed to know? But experience is a good teacher!

What's your favorite place to camp in Michigan?

Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes park is fantastic!

What types of outdoor activities are you especially looking to do?

I'm looking for company on day trips. Overnighters kill too much time. Hiking, kayaking, geocaching, and dinner out with old friends and new ones.


Hi, I'm Mark. My work has me on the computer ALL day = I'm looking for people to have fun with in the evenings to refresh my mind. I'm open to athletic activities, exercise, dancing, and dining out. Hope to meet you soon!
