My Locale Northeast
About Me I started backpacking as a Boy Scout over 50 years ago. After reading Collin Fletcher's book in the '60s, I began a light-weight quest. But realized I was not an ultra-lighter, because I didn't want to give up on convenience and comfort. These days all my solo trekking is during the spring and fall in the Adirondacks. I do day hikes from a movable base camp. During the warmer months, I take long cycling trips throughout New England, averaging 3000-5000 miles a year. Now, at age 72, I'm buying lighter equipment so I can stay on the trail.
