  1. Really enjoy the DVD’s – bought them at an AT conference this year – lots and lots of great info and I still review them often. Day hiker but hope to backpack as well!

    • Mark, Thank you very much for your kind words! I can’t think of a higher compliment than to hear that the info is helpful to a budding backpacker! Remembering what it was like when I was a novice, I tried to organize the content of the DVDs in a way that I would have learned it best. I hope you have many happy years in the backcountry and it’s a privilege to have helped in some small way. Best, Gail
