Hiking/Backpacking guide

25


25 simbi per session

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.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Tom is an excellent communicator. He contacted me regarding Indian vegetarian cooking lessons. He is a very good planner and made sure everything would be ready for the day of the lesson. He was kind enough to ask if he should bring any of the ingredients for the dish.

Thomas is someone you can count on to help you figure things out. He is a great example of what recovery from mental illness can look like. He is now working full time at a major mental health organization, helping those in crisis. Thomas being part of Simbi is a great service because you can have access to someone who will understand what you are going through with no judgement.

Thomas is the go-to person if you want something done right. He is great at what he does. Case management? You got it. Need help applying for DSHS benefits? He's the guy to go to. As a peer coach and mental health peer, Thomas is an inspiration--he has personal experience with mental illness and recovery--working with him not only will give you hope for the future, it will also inspire you to do well for yourself.
