New member and approaching geezerhood so this is as good as any forum to say hi.
I've been unemployed for most of the past 3 years and am getting pretty antsy. I figured since I have the time and a few bucks I'll spend some of it outdoors.
I'm not new to backpacking but haven't been out in a couple years. Not a ultra lightweight guy and need to shed a few pounds both gear and rear.
I am going to work towards some fairly serious mountaineering over the next couple years. Right now I just need to get out and put one foot in front of the other and wet a few lines while I'm there.
I currently live in West Virginia so there's no shortage of places to do those things.
That's it for now.
