I’m an experienced backpacker who works too much and only gets out in the wilderness a week or two a year. When I do go, I look for solitude, amazing scenery and a full wilderness immersion. It’s the antidote to taking the NYC subway every day. I’m also an avid photographer, and plan on getting into camp each day by 4pm so I can bask in the best light. You can check out my photos at: randakag.smugmug.com.
My lovely wife and 2 kids have no interest in sleeping in tents and not having a bathroom for a week. Hardly unusual...
On the trail I’m a self-contained unit, carrying a one-person tent (I love my tarp-tent), jet-boil and gravity water filter. I don’t use GPS, preferring to stay on trail with topo and compass. I also like to go relatively slow, 7-12 miles a day, to fully take in the wilderness about me. Lastly, I often prefer Wilderness Areas to NPs. More solitude. Less pavement. If you’re looking for a low maintenance hiking partner for a week off the grid, drop me a line. Thanks!

¡Bienvenido! También hablo español. I think you'll find that a lot on here share your perspectives on backpacking and wilderness. What wilderness areas do you like to visit?

Hola Jackson,
Mucho gusto!!
My last 5 trips have been to The Bob, Wind River, Pecos, Pasayten, and Sawtooths (ID). Loved them all, each for different reasons.
My current wishlist is: Uintas, Weminuche, Trinity Alps, Alpine Lakes (though permits are tough), Amsel Adams, Anaconda Pintler, Gros Ventre. The Bob is massive, and I’d love to go back.
How about you??

Teton Wilderness and Lee Metcalf Wilderness are two of my favorites. And then I also love the national forests and BLM land down near Capitol Reef. Those are all probably top of my list!

I've never been to the Bob, but I know it would probably be a favorite too. I've gotta get up there!

You'll get some of the best beta around on the Uintas from some of the people on here.
