Vern Dewit #2066
(Calgary, Alberta, Canada)  
I grew up in the Red River flat lands of Southern Manitoba. After obtaining my Computer Science degree in 1999 I moved to Calgary with my wife.

About 1.5 years after moving to Calgary I joined a group from work on a hike up Ha Ling peak outside of Canmore and was hooked on Mountains. I joined an informal group of scramblers from the 'rmbooks' forum and started a web site to keep track of my adventures at

I've started to finally move beyond hiking and scrambling with some alpine trips over the past few years. I'm never going to be a 'rock jock' - I prefer big terrain and long alpine trips. I also love ski mountaineering much to my wife's chagrin...

Even though I'm getting into some more technical climbing / mountaineering my first love will always be the freedom of tramping around the wilderness with just my backpack and a plotted GPS line on my iPhone.
