About You

Hiking, canoeing, bicycling, photography

I started backpacking in 1980, mostly in the Adirondacks/NY. My quest into lightweight backpacking was motivated when I was asked to be a moderator for The Lightweight Backpacker forum in the late 90’s.

Lightweight backpacking is not membership into an elite hikers group, mostly just an exercise in common sense.

These days I enjoy riding my bike and paddling trips in my 15 pound Hornbook Canoe.
