My Locale Midwest
About Me I was attending grad school in CO in 2008 and the sudden passing of my Dad brought me back to MI to look after my Mom and family. During my unplanned time back in MI, I met a lovely lady who also loves the outdoors and we got married in Sept 2010 on a glacier in Alaska. Our honeymoon was spent in Katmia National Park watching grizzly bears. We plan on moving back to CO in the near future. My favorite places to backpack are Yosemite and the Wind River Range, although I get my first look at the Tetons this summer.

Re:"What ONE piece of gear makes you smile and why"
Sarah - You are spot on in that some things I want to say in public, I probably shouldn't. At the same time, how can I possibly help those who might like the information I want to share, if I a...
