I am a retired US Army Officer and also a retired Engineer, but not yet retired from backpacking!
Some of my favorite places to hike are The Sierra Nevada, Utah, Wyoming Bridger Wilderness, and the Grand Canyon.
I spent about 15yrs 'stealth backpacking' in Germany/Austria and dabbled in Mountain Climbing for a time. I've been a skier since about 1982.
My passion is in the planning of trips 'out west' (I'm from Dallas, Tx but live in coastal Virginia now) for me and my group of hiking friends.
I'm slowing down, a lot, but still keep on truck'en.
