ANNUAL DAY ZERO PACIFIC CREST TRAIL KICKOFF ADZPCTKO
April 15, 2014

I helped found this great organization. It has grown from just an idea to become the largest hiker gathering in the western US.

PACIFIC CREST TRAIL ASSOCIATION
April 15, 2014

The PCTA does a fantastic job with limited personnel and budget. By leveraging the staffs skills and a huge volunteer group they not only maintain a 2,658 mile trail corridor, they work to protect it from numerous encroaching threats and see and find funding to purchase key tracks of land.

R.M. Pyles Boys Camp
December 11, 2012

I've helped this organization in several ways over the years, including guiding a group of their counselor wannabes on a 9 day circumnavigation backpacking trip around the Minaret Range in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. This incredible organization takes inner city youth-at-risk and puts them in a camp in the Golden Trout Wilderness area of the Sierra. They put these tough kids out for a three night camp with backpacks and teach them about respect, self esteem, leadership, etc and show them that there is a big beautiful world out there so much different from their neighborhoods. This was one of the 1,000 Points of Light from the first President Bush, as they take no government funding, only private.
