My Locale New York City
About Me I am just getting back into backpacking. I am choosing to go ultralight because I don't really want to have to take anything, and appreciate the minimalist "take only what you need" approach of ultralight.

Harriman State Park in my "backyard" being the closest park with mountains. PM me if you live in the area and are looking for a hiking partner.
