My Locale Seattle
About Me I've been backpacking and climbing for the last 15 years, originally in the northeast, and now in Alaska and my adopted state of Washington. I'm moving into the realm of ultralight, one ethereal yet expensive item at a time. Western Washington members, feel free to pm me and let's get out of town!
