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

snow...
Emigrant is going to get 4-6" of snow this weekend. So I have to take that into account... though it might not be that bad. Might be fun to have a big fire in the snow :)

Early sierra trip...
Can anyone recommend a nice early season route in the sierra nevadas? I'd like to avoid going over 8500/9000 feet just to avoid the extreme snow. Though a mild amount isn't too bad. I...
