Backcountry and Remote Adventuring in The West w/ Ney Grant

Ney Grant is the author of "Fifty Classic Adventures in California", a diverse adventure guide to many of the National Parks and adventure venues in California. The book covers both traditional "classics" as well as under-the-radar gems. It includes a variety of adventures including hiking, scrambling, mountain biking, inflatable kayaking, e-biking and even using mules. Ney's presentation will cover some of the best adventures in his new book as well as other remote, backcountry adventures in the west. Ney is a pilot and has used his plane both to extend his reach in Northern California and Northern Nevada, and also to scout new areas for hiking, climbing and mountain biking. Many of these areas are a challenge to reach so Ney and his wife Betsy have used the plane, ATVs, mules, ebikes and have even hired a porter. The presentation is designed as inspiration and motivation to explore with and without a guidebook. As part of the evening program Ney will share descriptions and locations of several hidden-gem adventure areas in both Northern California and Nevada where it is unlikely you will see another person.
