About

I practice law in Las Vegas and hike in the Red Rock, Valley of Fire and Mt. Charleston areas. I went to Everest Base Camp in 2012 and it was a life changing experience. The biggest physical challenge of my life.

September 2014 is my second BIG ADVENTURE as I will go to Machu Picchu, Peru and trek in!

I also kayak at Lake Mead and on the flat water of the Colorado between Boulder (Hoover) Dam and Lake Mojave.

Feels great to get back to who I used to be!

If you are reading this, thanks in advance for all of your help. Many of you have assisted me already and that makes this site worth coming back to.

Having been here for 3 years. I am now doing reviews for the Review Corps. I am excited to try to use my knowledge and experience to test out gear and help readers determine whether it would be useful for them or not. I mostly day hike and do treks that are supported, kayak, climb and bike and my testing will reflect that. I am also a plus sized girl and this aspect of getting outdoors will also come into the usefulness of gear for those of us who find it hard to get things that fit.
