Whether you are an experienced backpacker looking for some new places to go or a new hiker gearing up for your first weekend trip, I can make sure you have the info you need before you go. When you are in the backcountry you rely on what you have, so the details of preparation really matter. I can help with custom itineraries, packing lists, gear advice, and other tips and suggestions. Often answers depend on the person asking, so be ready for a few questions.

Training & Qualifications
I have logged over 600 miles backpacking, mostly in Oregon, and have hiked a few hundred miles more in day trips. In 2014 I thru-hiked Oregon on the Pacific Crest Trail from California to Washington by myself. I have led week long camping and backpacking summer camps for middle and high school students.
Availability & Preferences
Email works best for me, but if you want me to check out your gear or go on a hike with you, I'm down for that too!
