I've been hiking and camping since I was a very young child. My father would take us into the wilderness of Minnesota where we would canoe to an island, boil some water from the lake and fish for our dinner. As an adult, I have take to short backpacking trips. As a world traveler, I have had the opportunity to hike in the Okavango Delta in Botswana and look forward to doing many hikes in other countries. Domestically, I have hiked the Boundary Waters in Minnesota and a section of the NPT in New York. I'm always looking for new adventures and places to discover.
