WHY DO I BACKPACK?
Nature and the outdoors is in my blood. I grew up in a family with six boys and camping was an affordable vacation to get us out of mom’s hair. We spent our summers canoeing and fishing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
As a young man, I joined the Marine Corp where my main transportation was my boots. Hiking jungles, mountains and deserts honed my survival skills. I have lived my life in the wild and I enjoy sharing my adventures with you.
