About Me After a 5 or 6 year hiatus from backpacking due to my obsession with all things climbing I have rediscovered just how much I really really love backpacking.

I think more than anything I enjoy moving fast through the mountains whether it be day hikes, runs, or week long trips. That's what has drawn me so strongly to lightweight backacking and this community. I really have learned a ton from this site and look forward to years moving fast and efficiently through the mountains!
