After completing my 18-day journey on the John Muir Trail, I decided the best way to record the experience and provide enough details included in my typical “trip report” would be to start a blog as a repository for the extensive set of information that should be compiled.  Additionally, I will leverage the blog as a central repository for my past trip reports (which I will be adding over time).

The primary audience is myself and family and friends who are interested in hearing about my adventures.  I do not intend to turn this into an attempt to obtain an “audience” or tout myself as an “expert backpacker” (which I am not).  However, if anyone can obtain information that assists their adventure/journey to one of the beautiful places that I have visited, then paying it forward will have been obtained for all that I have been able to leverage from others.
