I love the great outdoors, and whatever kind of pursuits that get me out there and in it. I have lived in a lot of different places/climates, which has allowed me to 'sample' a wide variety of activities (master of none). I grew up land-locked in Colorado but somehow found a passion for the ocean too.  My all-time favorite pursuits are sea kayaking, surfing, and backpacking/thru-hiking.

In the summer of 2017, I started doing some serious section/thru-hiking, completing over 500 miles of the Colorado Trail (all of it plus some) and the first 270 miles of the Appalachian Trail. In December 2017, I will begin the Te Araroa, a walk over the length of New Zealand. After that, who knows, maybe the PCT.

As much as I love the outdoors, I love all the fun gear that makes it more enjoyable. Yes, I am a gear head, with no desire to seek help for my condition. I don't see it as a problem that I own multiple tents, tarps, quilts, bags, stoves, etc. My closet is full of shoes but none have heels. I proudly have a collection of titanium and aluminum stakes. Need I say more.

So if you have a similar affliction, you have come to the right place! You can receive support here but don't expect to find a cure. Your condition may even worsen.

Thank you for feeding my addiction Trailspace!
