About The Author

Mile 0 of 140 - PCT section '14

“The outdoors have always been a major part of my life. Growing up in Eugene with a Grizzly Adams-like father (though he would probably appreciate a Jeremiah Johnson reference better), my older brother and I were raised to respect the land. Whether it be for gardening, hunting, fishing, or recreation, I hold a great appreciation for the enormity and beauty that my state has to offer. So much has happened between that first snowy summit of the South Sister and now, with much learned in the ways of safety, survival, and technique, that I felt that it was time to make a website to document my adventures.”
