I have never backpacked and don't really have much gear.  I like to hike and have no problem with strenuous and challenging hikes.  Not that I am good at them and I certainly do complain along the way.  I rely on my friends a lot and am lucky to have a few I can completely rely on when I am having some problems on a hike (which has been known to happen).

This August, 2013, I am planning a 9 day backpacking trip in the Sierras with an epic finish of a Summit Mount Whitney.  There will be a lot of firsts on this trip and expect it to be pretty exciting.   I am gearing up now and will be able to review lots of things after.

I walk about 6 miles a day and hike 10 - 15 on the weekends.  I like to make beer and experiences many, many different beers. 

I am very computer and technology savvy.  I like to make slow things go faster to do more.
