I am a long distance hiker having backpacked 600 miles across Northern Spain twice, the Rheinsteig up the Rhine Valley in Germany from Wiesbaden to Bonn last fall and the Spitzenwanderweg in the Alps this Fall. I also do long distance kayak camping along, for example, the Missouri River. I also do long distance bike/camping. I've run 42 marathons though I switched to barefoot after 25. I have trekked up to Everest Basecamp, raced in bicycle's Race Across America 3 times, done one Ironman, three halves and multiple triathlons. I have 12 bicycles, 3 SUPs, 3 kayaks, one surfski and assorted other toys. I own a lot of gear.
