My Locale Pasadena, CA
About Me I am more of a cyclist these days (MTB and road) but get out on a few backpacking trips each year. I primarily spend time in the east side Sierra. I am an Eagle Scout, worked in the outdoor industry (including REI) for a few years, and have a good background in wilderness travel.
