    Default Hello from Colorado

    I've been reading this forum for a few weeks now and decided it was time to take a moment to register.

    A few quick words of introduction. I live along the Front Range of Colorado and have been an avid backpacker for almost 20 years. I also spent 8 years volunteering with the local wilderness search and rescue team. The Boulder County area has a very active outdoor community which means they have a very active S&R team so I've seen what happens when things don't work out as planned.

    I'm also very much of a do-it-yourself type of person that appreciates self-sufficiency and self-reliance. There's nothing like being out in the middle of nowhere with only what you're carrying to teach you that.

    Unhappy hoping to Delete this post

    User edit, erroneous post to an outdated topic, failed to see the date gap.

    Hello and welcome. I'd say ---- dress appropriately, shelter, a little food and water along with things you normally bring on a camping outing.
