About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. We love to travel and hike. I've been an avid backpacker for over 20 years. 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. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but also 6 years in aerospace.
