About Me It has always been hard to find the opportunity to hike and backpack. Year after year, the opportunities slip further away. I dont want to buy canned vacations or be tethered to a vehicle and call that an adventure until my age permits nothing else. I have decided to aggressively sieze the moment and discover the trails while I still have two strong legs, and a good back.

Re: Adapt Gear Bison Trekking Pole REVIEW
I have a pair of these. You should probably see my review in the reader review section before you buy a set for yourself.

Adapt Gear Bison Trekking Pole
