Greetings from California!

Post by teotwaki » Wed Apr 20, 2011 9:23 pm

I enjoy this forum a lot!

I'm an older guy who doesn't act his age, probably out of fear of slowing down.... :lol:

I'm into the following hobbies, no order of importance: backpacking, offroading-overlanding, mountain climbing, mountain biking, firearms, canyoneering, exploring old mines and other structures

I'm a commo guy by education and experience but I always am intrigued by a good challenge.

Mount Rainier

Mount McKinley
Image

Canyoneering Subway Slot Canyon in Zion NP
Image

43 mile hike through Paria Canyon
Image

Kayaking at Lake Powell
Image

Overlanding in Death Valley with my 4x4 and offroad trailer
Image

Hiking to old mining structures: Inyo Mountain Salt Tram

Southern Cali, Ya'll! LOL

I like Washington state a lot!! I've been on Rainier 3 times, hiked a lot in the Olympic peninsula, done trail work at Rattlesnake Ledge, rafted on the Skagit, snowshoed all over Mt. Baker and hiked a bunch at Mt. St Helens. I've not been up there in a while though...

You misspelled the name of your state. I fixed it for you. No need to thank me.

Unless there is a forum rule or custom against it I've changed it back. I know there are people out there who are overly sensitive about such minor things so I can go with the culture here. I was born in a different state anyhow. :lol:

The funny thing is that I was down that way last week but not in my 4Runner. :D

I do like the area and still want to explore more. The land navigation class that I wrote about in my blog was down south towards the border.

I see that this is a stale thread so I'll do a bit of necromancing and add some photos of things from the last 3 years.

Howdy, old mines are awesome. There are a few here in Oklahoma just not as awesome as those where u explore. Love the old gold mining and treasure hunting mags from the 50s thru the 80s. Really hype me up for exploration of these sites and ghost towns.
