Backpacked (self-supported) the PCT from Mex to Can in 1982, CDT from Mex to Can in 1988, and the AT from GA to ME in 1995. Over 20,000 mi of backpacking in 35 states and AB, BC and the Yukon. Over 2 yrs of wilderness canoeing in Ontario and Manitoba. My spiritual backpacking mecca is Great Smoky Mtns NP...been going there since 1974, accumulating > 3500 total trail miles.
