Each summer since 2004, I have gone on an extended outdoor
adventure trip, first peakbagging in Colorado, and more recently,
long-distance backpacking routes.
I recently returned from an 800 mile thru hike of the Arizona
In 2007, I became the 16th person to reach the summits of all of
Colorado's 637 mountains over 13,000 feet. This peakbagging
of hiking and scrambling, with just a bit of roped climbing to
reach a few of the most difficult summits. In 2008, I thru hiked
the 2,175 mile long Appalachian Trail
. In 2009, I
hiked the 481 mile Colorado Trail
. In 2011, I thru
hiked the 2,660 mile Pacific Crest Trail
California, Oregon and Washington. I have backpacked about 88
percent of the 3,100 mile long Continental Divide Trail.
Some day, I would like to thru hike the Appalachian and Pacific
Crest Trails again. It would be nice to find a female partner to
join me on these adventures.
