I have always really enjoyed camping, canoeing, and mountain biking, and more recently I have been getting into OHV 4x4 trails in my Jeep. I was drawn to this site while researching what I hope to be my new hobby, backpacking. I already have a lot of gear for camping but I am quickly realizing that I could use some lighter weight items. My outdoor aspirations beyond backpacking include getting into climbing and kayaking but those will have to wait till I can find some more free time and resources.
