I've been camping and spending time outdoors all my life. I started backpacking 23 years ago and I don't spend nearly as much time doing it as I would like. While living in the central Valley of California I got to spend a lot of time in the mountains which I never had growing up in Missouri. I started getting interested in climbing them, while I never had a partner I read about it a lot and did as much solo climbing as I could. Even after I moved back to Socal and I lived at the bottom of Mount Baldy. I climbed that mountain a lot, even in winter always alone. So I ended up turning around a lot due to unsafe snow conditions etc. I live in MO again and have to drive pretty far to see any elevation of note. I've made some friends in the adventure racing community here and I think I am going to start doing that this summer. Wish me luck!
