I belong to Backpacking Light and I can tell you I’ve gotten some of the best advise on gear, and different backpacking methods than any other site on the net. I would take any of their courses in a heart beat.

Their courses are priced in the range of $143/day for standard courses and $180/day for specialized courses. These are reasonable prices, compared to others out there.

Feel free to contact me at any time. Started Backpacking in 2003 and have never looked back. My all time favorite hike was last April when I hiked the Sycamore Wilderness Canyon. No trails, no signs, just wilderness and a 3,000 foot steep drop into the Canyon. I ran out of water my third day. Why? There was no water in the Canyon. You can check out my video on the "" page. Thanks for dropping by.
