Give a small bio of your outdoor experiences

I have backpacked extensively in the Trinity Alps, Marble Mountains, and the Sierra Nevada of California and the Wind River Range in Wyoming. Climbed Mt. Shasta twice. Have explored the San Juan and Gulf Islands on my small sailboat;

What is the maximum altitude you can handle?

12,000 ft. comfortably. Three years ago, spent 10 days at over 10,000 feet in the Wind River Range of the Rockies in Wyoming on a backpack.

Are you familiar with the 10 essentials and how they change with different events?

I tailor my gear to the season and come equipped with layers of wool and synthetics, as well as rain gear, good boots, stove, fire making materials, sun protection, and a first aid kit.

What outdoor events do you prefer?

Hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, mountain biking.

Is your activity pace slow, medium or fast?

As a senior in very good shape, I prefer slow to medium pace.


I am an avid hiker, backpacker, & mountain biker. I also enjoy snowshoeing and cross country as well as downhill skiing. My wife and I are enjoying an active retirement, and our objective is to have fun and stay healthy.
