KEYS TO MY ENERGY: Great work at REAMS and economical nutrition and below CONTENT OF THIS WEBSITE

UPDATE ON HIGH UINTA PASSES OPENINGS:
Go to:  PASSES  As soon as the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway is plowed I will report here.  By the weekend I will also report on accessibility of the Hades Canyon road to the Grandview Trailhead and access to the Grandaddy Basin where I have scheduled my first trip.


EQUIPMENT and PREPARATION for 2011 backpacking season: 
 The equipment I used last season as outlined in the Gear/Supplement section remains unchanged as my equipment proved to be about as good as exists and ultralight.  Links to all of it are still valid and will save you a lot of money.  I still follow closely the principles I outline in the article: 
 HOW I DO A 3 DAY BACKPACK
Those two items, plus the article entitled:
LIGHTWEIGHT BACKPACKING and GEAR
Will get you safely into the mountains for great backpacking experiences.  Last of all
to go prepared to cope with any survival situation, you should go through the 7 experiences outlined in the photo essay on SURVIVAL


To be in shape and hopefully accomplish my aggressive schedule for 2011 I’ve walked and jogged 100 miles a month working at REAMS for the last 2 years.  Now will come the acid test to see whether it’s made me stronger, or worn out my titanium (“motorcycle”) knee and reconstructed (“football”) ankle!
The Springville REAMS  is at 759 E. 400 So. For the details about where I get my energy, go to:  ENERGY

Keep REAMS alive and show them our gratitude for them giving me a 3 month leave of absence to finish my High Uintas Project.  You’ll love shopping at the BEST!
