My Locale Ryan Grayson hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me I fell in love with hiking, so quit my job to backpack around the country. So far I've hiked just over 3,000 miles, most from my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. I will be starting the Pacific Crest Trail southbound in June-July 2014.

Re: Re: What would be your ultimate backpacking adventure?
I have time because I don't have a wife or children. As great as that might be, it really does open up your schedule. I also have no interest in building a career, so I don't waste any time...
