I will help guide you to an enjoyable hike. We can start off slow or work up to a longer hike. I will help you in determining if you have the right gear. I will bring the 10 essentials, not including what you will need to bring for yourself (rain gear, boots, extra clothing, your extra snacks and water). We can work out the details. I might have some gear for you to borrow for the day. I have the books to select an enjoyable hike. I have the maps (or can get them). I can often supply the transportation and parking pass.
Training & Qualifications
I have been hiking, camping/backpacking in the pacific northwest for the past 25 years. I have taken over 40 backpacking trips with friends or solo. I have work experience as a field biologist where I camped out for work. My training is informal.
Availability & Preferences
We would have to work out dates. Mostly I am available on Friday's, but for shorter hikes other days might work out. Deals can be worked out for multiple day backpacking trips at lets guess 30 Simbi/day.
