My Locale Midwest
About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. Lived in VA for 6 years and really loved the area. But we've just moved back to Michigan, yeah! We couldn't stay away. I'm been an avid backpacker for about 20 years or so. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. We love to travel and hike. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but the last 6 years in aerospace.
