About meI am a hiking / backpacking / camping lover based in Chicago. I freelance write for a number of outdoor and travel publications, including Backpacker and Group Tour Magazines, and I am certainly your classic "weekend warrior." I spend more weekends outside of it than in it -- as I love exploring new state and national forests throughout the midwest. My favorite Chicago forest is Ryerson Conservation Area and when i'm not hiking in a local park or forest preserve, I love biking, kayaking, skateboarding around Chicago's neighborhoods.
