About

I recently started backpacking back in 2011.  Since then, I have hiked quite a few trails around the Angeles National Forest, Los Padres National Forest, and San Bernardino National Forest.  I would consider myself to be a lightweight backpacker bordering on Ultralight. I'm very detail oriented with regards to the gear I use and recommend...this tenacity has helped me greatly in lowering my overall pack weight.

Prior to backpacking, I enjoyed off-roading and vehicle dependent exploration.  Since the rise of gas prices, I had to find another medium to allow me to enjoy the outdoors.  I was introduced to backpacking by a buddy of mine who off-roads...I haven't stopped since.
