My Locale West Virginia
About Me I was a guide for many years in Yellowstone, Denali, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Moved to Eugene, Oregon, for my Master's and got a good taste of the PNW. Now I'm in West Virginia making maps for all of our wonderful national parks with the NPS Publications program at Harpers Ferry Center.

3 Days
I did 35 miles over the course of 2.5 days/2 nights in Yellowstone in my Revelation. My load was sub-4, 8 pounds total with beginning food and water, so I had plenty of space. I could have fit an...

ULA Arctic Dry Pack
I purchased the Arctic Dry Pack; the deal was just way too good to pass up. I'm going to be guiding all summer in Denali and am hoping this pack will serve me well.
