I'm looking for a fun partner(s) for trips like Isle Royale, Killarney Provincial Park ON, Algonquin Provincial Park ON, Lake of The Woods, Superior Hiking Trail, BWCA trips, AT, etc.
My experience includes trips to Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, a bit in Alaska, and am gaining kayaking skills.
I live just south of Chicago and while I have alot of friends, NONE of them like to wake up, eat up 15-20 miles of endorphin fun and camp (maybe a bit of fishing as well.) Usually I like to dedicate one solid week of vacation to the outdoors, one for a good metro trip (NYC, London, etc) one for family, and one for miscellaneous stuff.
I ground camp, MLD Trailstar, borah bivy, Crown VC, etc. Base weight is about 13lbs but I am making improvements to a base weight of about 10lbs
6ft, 210lbs, sarcastic, professional manager. I like to hike/kayak to see interesting terrain I don't live in, not to "find myself" or some other awkward reason.
