My Locale SF Bay Area/Sierras
About Me I love the High Sierra. I came out to visit California for few months in 1988 and never left. My visit started with a week in the Emigrant Wilderness. I was hooked. I've co-led backpacking trips for urban youth groups that I ran in the Bay Area. I've done a few week+ trips on the High Sierra Route. Last winter I did the SF Bay Area Sierra Club's Winter Snowcamping Training. I've been recovering from a knee issue and BPL has been a great source of inspiration because going light makes it all possible. I aspire to do the whole High Sierra Route.
