    Carson City, Nevada, United States 

    I've been hiking since the early 1960's and have no idea how many trails and miles I've covered in the past 50 years.
    I started out in the 1960's in the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles where I also worked for the Forest Service on the Angeles National Forest in the early 70's. In the mid 70's, I split my time between Northern California and Northwest Montana. I attended Humboldt State University (graduated in 1977 with a degree in forestry) and worked summers on the Kootenai National Forest. My wife and I moved to Troy, Montana after graduating.
    We've been in Carson City, Nevada on the east side of the Sierras since 1990 and I'm always looking for the next trail and more hiking partners.
