I offer learning-intensive and adventure-rich guided backpacking trips in California, Alaska, West Virginia, southern Utah, and the Rocky Mountains.
Thru-hikes and high routes, plus related guides, gear lists, and how-to information.
My writings on backpacking gear, supplies, and skills, and sometimes about running, hunting, and life events.
High route guides, a free food e-book, and signed copies of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide.
An easy-to-learn skill that is helpful to know on your first night is my guyline system for tarps, tents, and hammocks. We’ll teach it, too, but sometimes we can’t give it full treatment until the second day.
