Australian. Grew up camping and fishing on lakes and inland rivers. Have always enjoyed bushwalking, swimming in rivers, lakes and the sea, and love nature and the outdoors. Studied Science and Horticulture. Fell in love with the Sierra Nevada mountains of California and luckily so did my partner, so we have made a bit of a habit of visiting in their summer (our winter) each year for 8 of the past 9 years. We have hiked around 500 miles in the Sierra Nevada including most of the John Muir Trail, and have also done some backpacking in New Zealand and the Australian Alpine National Park. We are mid-weight backpackers, (started off lightweight, but found we preferred more supportive/durable/comfortable gear). We love our time in camp as much as our time on the trail. We are in our 50s.
