My Locale South East
About Me I started backpacking in 2006 and haven't slowed down since. Backpacking Light was my main resource when deciding on which equipment and style of backpacking I would later adapt. Hence, I have always been a lightweight hiker. Since then I have averaged around 500 miles a year and I try to get out at least twice a month. My favorite activity is introducing the benefits and ethics of backpacking light to everyone I meet.
