Male, 70 years old

Power = 219 (Vote Weight = 91.3%)

Occupation: retired

Partner Details: I'm more a hiker than a climber but I usually make an attempt at the peaks I find in my travels. With the info I've found on Summitpost, I'm doing a lot more climbing and enjoying every minute of it.

I had the good fortune to get paid for traveling the west coast from San Diego to Fairbanks and sometimes had the time to run/jog/hike/climb up a mountain. Now I can take my time, go back and see what I might have missed during all those years I was working. Life is good!

"I can always use a few more miles" - Don Nelsen
