About me:
I've been hiking seriously since about 2002, at which time I formed Wanderung.ca with my friend Judd.

By nature, I'm a peak bagger. I find that the act of working through a guide book, cover to cover, forces me to put my biases aside, and opens me up to be pleasantly surprised by areas I've never heard of, and explore an area thoroughly. In 2007 I completed Dawn Hanna's "Best hikes in SW BC" and have since also completed the 5th editions of 103 Hikes (2015) and 109 Walks (2017), with a good start on a great many other books too.

Hiking highlights for me have been Cathedral Lakes, Nootka Island, Zion NP, Athelney Pass, and Ptarmigan Ridge.
