Hi! I'm happy to join the forums; there is a lot of helpful information about traveling in the back country. I'm a retired senior who used to do a lot of peak bagging in the Lower Mainland with my brother, and solo; but, since he died a few years ago, my interest in peaks has subsided. These days, most of my hikes are day trips, primarily for foraging edible mushrooms or just exercise. I tried a backpacking trip into the Grand Canyon last year but found that I couldn't sleep during any of the 3 nights in a tent; so, day trips and car camping are the best choices left. We used to go back country skiing practically every weekend during winter and early spring, but that activity has been reduced to just a few trips a year lately. Still, I hope to be able to contribute a few posts.
