Why did you become a member of the Indianapolis Backpackers group?

To actully find some local people to go backpacking with.

What was your most memorable backpacking trip?

Well its gota be a trip to grandfather mtn in NC with my son who was 7 at the time. We got caught in a sudden lightning storm at callaway peak, the summit, and had to haul butt to a small mtn top shelter building a few hundred yards away. Way more excitement than i was expecting but we keep cool headed and stayed safe and it turned out to be quite the trip.

Are you a novice or a seasoned backpacker?

Ive been day hiking up mtns for 20+ years but just got into backpacking in 2012. Love it!


Hi im Tony. I enjoy backpacking, hiking, mtn biking, kayaking/ canoeing and just being outdoors in general. Most likely if you see me on the trail ill have my four legged side kick, Kobe dog, with me.
