I’m thinking of writing a weekly article about my passion for backpacking, yay or nay?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

So for those who know me well, you know that one of my biggest passions in life is backpacking. Now there are two kinds of backpacking so let me be clear which kind I’m talking about. One form of backpacking is heading to a place like Europe with a backpack and adventuring for a month or longer. I’ve never done that but I’m sure it’s fun. That being said, I’m talking about the second kind of backpacking where you head into the woods and survive out in the great outdoors usually for a period of 2-5 days.

For the last twenty five years I’ve been backpacking every chance I can get, and twenty four years ago I was in the backpacking club at my High School which I think did a lot to really catalyze my love for backpacking.

Now, I do an annual snow backpacking trip, often in Yosemite, with some of my good friends here in the Bay Area.

For those wondering, the backpacking adventure I went on a few weeks ago was out to Paradise Lake which is seven mile hike from Truckee, CA in North Lake Tahoe. The lake was spectacular, here’s the view from my campsite:
