My Locale PA Wilds
About Me I am 53 and have been 4 season backpacking since a teenager. As I age I've had to lighten up the pack to keep my milage up. Typically I hike about 15 miles a day. Presently I carry about 8 lbs base weight and my hips and knees are happy. Many THANKS to this site to discover ways to drop the weight. There are numerous trails close to home, Suquehannock Trail System STS, and often backpack the weekends right after work on Friday. Chris aka Hobbit
