About Me 35, male. Software Engineer living in downtown San Francisco.

I'm an intermediate/advanced backpacker. In excellent shape. Love the outdoors.

Avid fisherman. I always carry my rod with me when I am backpacking.

I've climbed Mount Shasta, hiked most of Yosemite, visited Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

I'm going to do a 4 week section hike of the PCT in 2013.

You could say I'm addicted.

I have a bunch of backpacking videos over at

I think that the reverse would happen... More people would appreciate the wilderness which would mean more political pressure on conservation. ... which means more parks for us :)

"They could be perfectly happy with their current setup." Oh sure... in that situation you obviously wouldn't do anything. But about half of the time when I tell people my pack ...

Infographic / flier to hand out to newbies to help lighten their packs.

I'd recommend using Backcountry Navigator and a Samsung Galaxy S3 or S4... apparently the S3 has longer battery life. The KEY thing is that it supports removable batteries and charges with s...

No way... I would MUCH prefer to be around skunks. Grizzlies have an essentially unlimited amount of violence they can unleash on you... Skunks have a finite supply of odor which needs to be reple...

skunks...
honestly, they are the least of your worries. If you don't scare him he won't spray. I used to feed 2-3 of them behind my loft in the western portion of San Francisco. They were al...
