Started backpacking at 12yo before Kelty discovered a padded hipbelt. Have loved the outdoors my whole life either through backpacking or bicycle riding. I want to stretch out trips beyond what I have done (max of 30 days) since I have the time (I am a teacher). I also want to find others to share the experience because even though I hike alone it does not mean I like to be alone.
