I have never backpacked and don't really have much gear. I like to hike and have no problem with strenuous and challenging hikes. Not that I am good at them and I certainly do complain along the way. I rely on my friends a lot and am lucky to have a few I can completely rely on when I am having some problems on a hike (which has been known to happen).
This August, 2013, I am planning a 9 day backpacking trip in the Sierras with an epic finish of a Summit Mount Whitney. There will be a lot of firsts on this trip and expect it to be pretty exciting. I am gearing up now and will be able to review lots of things after.
I walk about 6 miles a day and hike 10 - 15 on the weekends. I like to make beer and experiences many, many different beers.
I am very computer and technology savvy. I like to make slow things go faster to do more.
