My Locale San Jose -- too far from Sierras
About Me Backpacking since winter camping meant an Army surplus poncho over a couple of feet of boughs (OK back then). Eastern winter mountaineering (lowest temp -40F). Traditional style Canadian canoe trips (tump lines, wanigan boxes, canvas/wood canoes). Now UL in the West.
