In the late 1990s, Paul Kubik (name dropping) mentioned Bivouac to me. Its decidely quirky/seriously outdated user interface hid a treasure trove of useful data and information. To me, it's still the best backcountry database anywhere. Editing and improving its road database satisfies my obsessive compulsive nature.
In the summer I hike. In the winter, I snowshoe. Thoughts of backpacking, mountaineering, skiing, and other serious backcountry adventures are tempered by my preference for hot and cold running water, fear of heights, and a slightly bum knee.
Constant obsessions: keeping the Sigurd Trail clear of salmonberry, wondering how to keep the Athelney Pass route viable, film photography.
