My Locale Western Slope of the Sierra
About Me I was blessed to have been introduced to backpacking by my Dad back in 1976, thus my Avatar photo- from a trip through Bubbs Creek in Kings Canyon with Dad and sister. Learning and exploring the UL philosophy and evolving my gear list to match. Passing on my passion for backpacking and the wilderness to my three sons!
