About You

I backpacked and climbed a lot from 1970-1990 using a heavy-weight approach. In the 1990s other things filled my time. In 2001 I was again backpacking, but with a light weight approach. Most of my trips are to the sierras with a base weight around 9lbs. I did a lot of gear testing between 2001-2010. Since then my kit hasn’t changed significantly… mostly clothing being updated because the previous items wore out. ¬†Used to be very active on this site, but these days try to maximize my time outside.
