(Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)

My hiking career started in university with an overnighter to the clearcuts north of Port Moody with better equiped friends. Using a garbage bag and an umbrella as shelter and no protection from the bugs, I got no sleep. Somehow, I got enough out of the experience to attempt 2 weeklong solo hikes in Tasmania when I spent 4 months in Australia after university. Since then, I've steadily increased my involvement with hiking. I graduated from a mostly-dayhiker to a mostly-overnighter. I've moved from the crowded trails of the local hills to lonely routes further afield (but still within about 5 hours drive of Vancouver). I can't claim to be a mountaineer, a climber or even a peak-bagger. Meadows are my thing. I love nothing more than miles of flat grassy plains surrounded by glaciers and peaks. I usually climb only if something rocky stands between me and a meadow (or I think I can see something meadowy from the top). I commonly haunt the Duffy Lake corridor and the Southern Chilcotins.
