I have been backpacking mostly around the PNW for 15 years and I have been seriously backpacking for the last 5 years thanks to retirement. I base out of Oregon and my dog Brook is a frequent backpacking buddy. Brook, @aussiebrook on Instagram, a Blue Merle Australian Shepard does have her own opinions about many of our treks. I post all of my trip reports on my blog: Adventure Continues. I backpack the Timberline Trail every year as a way of gauging my physical fitness which is emphasized a bit more because of my 2 artificial hips. I also rely heavily on REI for most all of my equipment.
