I am a outdoor junky, that spends as much time outside as possible. I have been camping since I can remember, I got into distance hiking several years ago along with wilderness survival. In the last two years I have been exploring the world of backpacking and light weight backpacking. I live in the Western New York area and work as a Veterinary Technician, and volunteer Firefighter.

I am a single father of a great 13 year old son who also enjoys the outdoors.
